i dont know if these have the famous dual mass flywheel, but it may need a clutch soon (if it hasn't already been done) expect a £800+ bill
by the way our local BCA auction have been selling ex-mobility 09 and 59 plate focus zetec's for £6,200 with under 30,000 the clock, plus buyer premium of course
Is this still a problem on recent model Focuses? I got lumbered with an £800 bill for a new clutch and DMF at 80k on my 52 TDCi. Is it just Fords with this problem or all Diesels?
