2003 Ford SVT Focus

2003 Ford SVT Focus

We picked up this SVT Focus for a paltry sum of $3500. The catch? It has 250,000 miles on the clock. It's been well-maintained all its life, and came with lots of service records. This begs the question: Is condition or mileage more important when shopping for a used car? Follow along as we find out how this little Focus stands up to aggressive use.
