Hello,
I am looking into buying a second hand CD Silver 2004 SVT Focus with 158,000 miles on the Odometer. Comes with the Black Leather Recaro seats, brand new clutch and newly inspected. I'm coming from an 2002 Focus Sedan Zetec. I was just curious on some common issues i should check out before buying the vehicle. I am aware of the infamous Timing Belt issue. Seller is unaware if it has been replaced. Says it runs and drives great with no known rust.Thoughts?

If the check engine light is on that should decrease the selling price. Usually an 02 sensor or the imrc unit. Be prepared to spend $800 or $900 fixing the timing belt ,water pump, other issues that may pop up the first year. They drive great .
