Advice for buyers

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

The Focus is generally a tough little monkey, but, as ever, there are a few things to look out for.

Listen for noisy, creaky suspension on your test drive, especially if you're after an older car - this is what's most likely to fail. Lots of scratches on the rear bumper might mean a hard life in the hands of rough owner, so be particularly wary here.
