Another used focus, thoughts please

I found another Focus that I am going to go take a look at on Monday. Here is the craigslist ad.

http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/cto/4168273229.html

The guy has service records for the car, and recently had a bunch of stuff done to it listed in the ad. He has receipts for all the major work done. Anything I should watch out for on a car like this? What are your thoughts for price?

His story is that he loaned a guy money and he repaid him with this car, so he is trying to get his money back out of it. Please let me know your thoughts, thank you very much!

It's a much better priced car than the other one ad looks to be in just as good of shape body and interior wise. Question is if it's mechanically sound.

Pricing really depends on your area. In my area, any car with that age and miles is all rotted to peices from rust and go for a grand or two. If there is no rust on it and if the car is a Zetec (very important), you can get another 100,000 easily.
