Hi Guys


I currently have an 06 Mk6.5 Fiesta and love it. I am moving to Sweden from Australia in July though and need to buy a new car over there.


As much as I love my Fiesta, it is missing some bigger car features like cruise (pretty much the only thing I want) so I thought an upsize would be a good idea. Plus in Sweden I seem to be able to get a newer Focus for less money than a Fiesta - go figure?


Anyway is there anything I should look out for when buying a mk2? I am specifically looking at something like a a 1.8 Flexifuel, good engine? I currently have a 1.6 in my Fiesta and it pulls well,can i expect that from a 1.8 flex?


Ps. I was recommended to buy an Asian like a Toyota, Honda or Mazda for reliability and minimal rust reasons but they just don't do it for me, am I right in thinking a Focus will be just as reliable but more fun?


Cheers for any input

I have the 1.8 2008 model Focus and its been great for me. if you can get the best model possible like a titanium etc but not a style like mine as its bottom of the range.
