As mentioned in a few other threads I've been driving my sisters 02 Focus lately. She passed away in June and it's been in limbo since actually for a long time since she hasn't been able to drive in 2 years. Dad and I have drove it over 20k in that time though. My parents are letting me drive it to fix a few things and so I'll have something decent to take on my work trips in Dec and Apr. I like driving this car it's comfortable and gets good mpg. Seem to have plenty of room for the family also. I've maintained this car for her since she bought it in 03 with 32k miles. The egr tube (known problem), coil and the a temp sensor and now runs perfect. The only thing I know is wrong with it is the AC, leaking from the rear of the compressor. The tires are almost new. Need to take the tires off this weekend and check everything front and back seems to wander although that could be the wind lately. Paint and body isn't perfect since a teenage girl drove it, not any worse than the Escape though! They've asked me if I wanted to buy it in the past. How much I don't know. The only problem I have is the SPI engine and valve seats. That could be fixed for $325 for the head probably $500 all together and never have another problem. But with the original it could run another 100k who knows. If it was a ZETEC no brainer. I'm going to ask them what they would sell it to me for in a couple weeks. They've already said they didn't want to sell it or trade it.. although I think deep down they really want me to buy it. As I'll take care of it as I always have and not tear it up. Thoughts?
