I'm looking for a cheap run-around as my current daily motor is a bit on the expensive to run side.
Current favourite is a 1.8 Diesel Focus estate at about 2000/2001

Are there any common issues with this engine?
Is it likely to blown the HG every 12000 miles like the Rover K series petrol or any such 'orrible gremlins?

Just looking for a heads up on this before I spend the money!

Cheers,
Sam

The one to watch out for that I know for certain is the instrument cluster, being the owner of a mk2.5 I couldnt say for definite anything else, but the instrument cluster developed a few faults and needed to be replaced for a costly sum!

I think the best thing you can do is search this forum for phrases like "1998 Focus" or "Focus MK1" that will bring up a list of things...
