Hi all,

I'm looking at buying a 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 SE.

It has 107,000 miles.

Body is in good shape, just a couple of really minor dings.

Interior is in good shape as well.

It is the dark blue color. (I don't know the exact name for the color).

It is the 4 door sedan.

It has tinted windows.

Everything else is stock.

For $4100

Assuming it checks out from the dealership as having nothing major wrong with it, is it a good deal?


thanks in advance for any responses.

You can get a better price.

Ask to see the sales manager and only the sales manager(do not tell the saleman anything else!)and ask him the out the door price(that includes tax, title and lic.).

^^ This

It's not grossly overpriced but you should be able to work it down considering the miles on it.

Well, 104 k is not 'too high' for 6 to 7 year old car. Used car prices are higher these days than a year ago, so $4100 is not bad.

2005's were an early introduction, spring 2004, so quite a few are 7 years old now.

well considering mine is an 03 zx5 with 101,--- miles and still blue books out at 4k id say its worth it. i would just tell them 3800, see what they say. they will go lower they always go lower.
