Hi to all Ford Focus owners

I've just changed my car from an old Mondeo to a 'not so old Focus' so I thought it would be a good idea to join this Forum to find information & perhaps give a little info when I can.

The Mondeo was Absolutely Fantastically Reliable, although looking very tired & rusty in the paintwork & body stakes, I'm now looking for somebody to give it a good home.

My Focus is an X reg 1.8 Petrol Zetec, Pacific Green and has had 2 owners and only 72,000 miles (no rust visible)

It came via Family so I know the general history of the car and it has always been serviced, Ford service + Independent Garage service.

Notwithstanding that, I've already had a few small items to attend to!

Rear wiper blade, old was starting to disintegrate and was only clearing about half the window....
Rear window water coming out.....will need to investigate - Still Needs Fixing
Engine oil replaced....looked ok but was about 3 cm too high on the dipstick!!
Poor starting when cold....New Spark plugs fitted...old ones were not tightened up...quite a lot of sooty deposits on threads + around spark plug recess
Air Filter replaced....old was really quite black
Engine Coolant low....needed 1 litre of Ford Anti-Freeze to top it up to Max level....after 500 miles its now half way between Max / Min....looks like this will need attention, I noticed some pink residue on one of the thermostat housing pipes - Needs Fixing
