Advice needed: anything to look out for when buying a 05 Focus ZXW?

Hello --

First time poster. I hope I am posting this in the right place.

I don't actually own a Focus right now, but I have found a 05 Focus ZXW (wagon) SES for sale and am seriously considering purchasing it. It appears to be in good shape and the price is right. This wagon seems to hit a nice sweet spot of cargo space, MPG and drivability. 120k miles, auto trans.

Before I move forward, are the any mechanical, electrical, body, etc. issues that this model/year/series is prone to that I should be aware of? Things I should have the mechanic who will be evaluating this car concentrate on?

I've owned Hondas for most of my life -- this would be my first Ford. I do most minor work on my cars myself. I assume I'll need to trade my metric sockets for SAE?

Thanks very much for any input you can give me. If I do end up purchasing this wagon, I'll be around a lot!
