Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Ford Focus estate?

The list of known faults is short, so far, but it does include tailgate hinges that may let rain in. However, Ford dealers should cure this at no cost.

Water can also get into the wiper motor and can cause it to overheat, but Ford has issued a recall notice and will fit a modified unit if need be.
