I'm looking to buy one of two SE sedans, auto tranny, either a 2001 or 2002, from local dealers. Both are high mileage with 100K miles on the 2001and 90K on the 2002. Both appear in good condition for the age. I'm not too familar with the Focus other than it gets good reviews and I like the way it drives and looks. I'm going to have my own mechanic look at it and I'm pretty knowlegable auto-wise in general, doing most of my own work, but I don't know much about this car. Any advice on particular issues to look for? Models, years to be avoided? They are asking $5000 for the 2002 and $5900 for the 2001. Thanks in advance for any help.
