Buying a Ford Focus diesel - what should I look out for?
I am wanting to buy a 3/4 year old Ford Focus Estate and seem to have found a 2013 one, but the mileage is quite high at 100,000. Would this be a problem in the long run? My average miles per year wouldn't be more than 10,000.
If it's a diesel then all kinds of problems might rear their ugly heads: timing belt, waterpump, DPF, DMF, EGR, turbo. The previous Focus was notorious for this. You could spend £5k on a 100,000 miler then have to spend another £5k over the next year.
