2004 Ford Focus 2.3l 5spd manual

Selling my beloved beater because my license is suspended and I can't afford to let it sit around collecting dust. Y'all get first dibs because I want it to go to a good home and not some random person off CL.


Here's the skinny:
- Clean Title, Current Reg, Passes Smog
- Bought it at 182k miles, now has 225k
- Drove it for Lyft/Uber in the Bay Area
- Driven it to Boise, Idaho in the middle of winter
- Towed my 1998 CBR 600 and trailer up to Thunderhill in the middle of summer
- Outperformed every challenger on Wildcat Canyon, Pinehurst, etc
- Has been my comfy seat in traffic for over two years

In short, it has been lovingly abused during my ownership and I'd love for someone to continue on the legacy because I need to pay rent.

$1000, 2% to budman.

PM me for any details, questions, or witty responses.

Good car, good price - have worked on this very vehicle a few times myself.

That's a little rocket. They only made that motor for a couple years. Fun car to drive.

Extremely fun. Also, guess I should mention these fun tidbits that I put in ~10,000 miles ago

- SVT Focus struts and springs
- New brake rotors, drums, pads and shoes Front and Rear
- Lower control arms
- Tow hitch (acts like a rear sway bar) w/ yoshimura sticker so you can tell people you ride
- New motor mounts
- Tires (They’re cheap tires, I just needed some new rubber)

Ahh, that's how you get a sway bar on that rear. IIRC it didn't have mounting points, unlike the hatchback.

There’s actually a rear sway bar from the factory if I remember correctly. I’ll double check the service manual as opposed to crawling underneath the car when I finish studying up on who to elect.

Edit: yup, it has a sway bar.

Morning y’all, I’ll entertain most any offer. It’s honestly worth a lot more to me than the advertised price but I need it gone now.
