If CarGurus says it's a great deal, then it is. What is the "in service" date? Was it originally purchased in 2017 or was it later in 2018? This will tell you how much time you have left on the factory warranty. Obviously if you could buy one as nice as this one, with the same or lower miles, you would have already bought it, so if the things I told you to look for are good, then don't mooch too hard on the price, just buy it or you may wind up missing a deal trying to look for a deal.I'm in the process of buying a 2018 ST2 with 14k miles on it, and the dealership is asking 22k out the door, won't budge. I can't find anything wrong with it, but I'm taking it to a mechanic to make sure. Is this a decent price or am I overpaying? Any advice on what to look for to make sure it's hasn't been messed with? Only thing I can see is a custom exhaust.
ahhhh...but if you think about it, you are making the opposite point 😉I’d say this is a bit overpriced. I bought mine brand new in 2018, though it’s model year 17, the generation is the same. With taxes and registration I paid 22k out the door, the dealer even waved documentation fees.

Ah my mistake, mine is an ST1. That makes this a much better deal lolThey sold you a brand new ST2 for 18.9k? If that’s accurate, you could literally sell it now & break even. There are no ST2/ST3’s listed under 20k right now with under 15k miles & one owner.

I did the same thing, got a 2017 ST1 leftover in 2018. Between rebates and negotiating I saved around $6.5K; they were just unloading them. Now its worth more than I paid OTD.I have come around to PokerRun's thinking. I think the sweet-spot in pricing was just around the time that Ford announced that they were no longer manufacturing the Focus (or any non-SUV cars with the exception of the Mustang) for the US market. Ford dealerships dumped their inventory. I was particularly lucky to get my new 2017 ST3 (then nearly a year old) in the spring of 2018 for almost 1/3 off of sticker. Now that these cars are only available as pre-owned, there is a finite number of them available, and even fewer ones that are low-mileage stock examples. Throw in further requirements like trim level, area code, included warranty, and a particular color, and it will be relatively hard to find exactly what you want in any given area. The laws of supply and demand will regulate the pricing.
