Question Want to purchase used Focus, any advice?

Hello everyone.

I'm looking at buying a used Ford Focus;
- What year to buy
- What should I pay attention to when looking/driving at a Focus.
- What are the most common problems with a Focus

Any more help would be most appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Cheers

Hey Black and Tan,

I'm looking to spend no more than $3,000. Maybe 3,3 if the deal is very good.

Thank you for the info. It was very helpful.
I'll be looking out for the engine types too.
