2008 Ford Focus se

fuel: gas
odometer: 193000
title status: clean
transmission: automatic

For sale is a car that I purchased from a government auction to rob/swap parts for another Focus that I have. Even thought the body and interior are rough the car runs and drives like it should. Its a great cheap commuter car and would last you for a long while as long as you're not planning on attending car shows or anything like that. That being said lets go over some features and then I will list the bad or swapped parts.

Features:
Power locks, window, mirrors.
Cruise control
CD and aux input for music from you phone (more on that later)
Great sound system for a small car.
A little over 193000 miles- still runs great!
Battery relocated to trunk. Not really sure why but it was done by the previous goverment agency
Clean title ready to transfer. No brands or salvaged.
Awesome gas mileage. I can drive it around and it barely sips gas.
Brand new battery.

Has a set of studded tires on it, great for this weeks snow. One tire is flat with a sidewall cut but the actual rim that matches is included. No other tires included. You'll have to get street tires at the end of the winter.

In the picture it looks like the mileage screen is missing pixels. It isn't, its just the camera trying and failing to capture the pic. It is bright and visible.

Not so great:

I'm sure the first thing you notice is no passenger seat. Government agency took it out for whatever reason.

Both front fender panels, hood, headlight housings, and bumper cover are damaged. These are some of the parts I swapped. The supports and bumper are in perfect shape with no damage. I just took the covering parts from my other damaged car and put them on this one. You can see that a snow chain came off and beat one fender and then it looks as if someone backed into the other panels or a light hit occurred. Regardless, the panels are on the car and are on securely. No worries about anything falling off. Use them forever or get another set of parts to replace them with.

Damage to top of car where a siren sat.

Rest of exterior is good. Some scuffs or dings but nothing serious.

Just recently developed a squeak that sounds like a bad wheel bearing on the front passenger side.

Interior is a solid 3 or 4 out of a 10. The usual button wear on the cruise control and the door panels and dash are scratched up.

The tire monitor system is throwing a fit. Likely because the spare is on the car so Its not reading the sensor. The air bag light is also on. Why?? I'm not sure. Maybe because the passenger seat is gone? Not sure

Radio is in the dash but the antenna port does not work. The CD and aux inputs do work but not the radio portion. I took out the antenna and inserted a copper wire to test the ariel and it still didn't pick up anything. I'm assuming a radio will have to be sourced. Salvage yards or Craigslist is a good option.


Thats about it. It is really a good running and driving car. Works great and will last for a long while. If your willing to work on it a little or just need something temporary this is a great option. The price is 900 firm! Don't worry about coming over if your saying to yourself that you can talk me down to $200. I won't take a dime below 900. Heck, This is cheaper than a salvaged car that doesn't run! Give me a call or txt at show contact info to set up a time to look at it.
