Ownership cost

What used Ford Focus hatchback will I get for my budget?

You really can buy a Ford Focus for less than you paid for the phone in your pocket, with the tattiest, highest mileage examples starting at just a few hundred pounds. We’d recommend spending a bit more, though, because cars at that price have the potential to bring plenty of repair bills.

You’re unlikely to have to pay more than £2000 for any first-generation Focus, with the exceptions of the RS and particularly nice ST170s.
