Hi,

I am going to buy a Focus and am looking at a second hand 1.8, 2.0 or ST170.... I'm wondering about the cost of getting it serviced and buying parts from places like Euro Car Parts etc. I really don't want to be in a position where I have to pay silly Ford prices for parts because nowhere else has any in stock

Are the servicing/parts costs of a 1.8 and 2.0 identical ie; do they use the same easy to find and relatively cheap Ford parts? Is it just that the 2.0 has a bigger engine and not upgraded suspension or anything like that?

Does the 2.0 Ghia have any more expensice parts or is it all interior gadgets and trim?

And I am assuming that the ST170 has upgraded suspension and other parts which means it will be more expensive to maintain am I correct?

Thanks

I'll refine my question!

Are parts more expensive for a focus 2.0 than a focus 1.8/1.6? For example the suspension arms/bushes or exhaust

Thanks!

hi, ive not had mine long but have got an st 170, so far it has cost me 48 + vat for a throttle pedal position sensor, which was main dealer only, plus 35 + vat to have it plugged in to tell me the fault, Another 10 to have engine management light turned off after fault had been rectified, mine has xenon headlamps which as im sure you will know are not cheap, 91 + vat each side! And ive found that it does like to drink fuel! But thats to be expected really from an st! to sum up my opinion, Although maybe a bit more expensive to run, Well worth it for sporty looks and i have to say EXCELLENT handling, Hope this helps, regards Mark. And by the way, faultless for some time now...
