Hi everyone,

I hope you are all doing well.

I came across an ad for a 2014 Ford Focus ST GCC spec (I live in the middle east and this will be my first-ever car) with manual transmission. it has done 100,000 km and from the pictures looks pretty good with no accidents after checking the VIN number in the system. the guy selling it is the second owner and has done some mods. he has changed the headlights, taillights wing and suspension for aesthetics. he has also added a cold air intake, a Ford performance axel back exhaust (he says no drone), GFB Blow-off valve and $%& SPEED COILOVERS.
Honestly, I'm not so educated on mods and everything, but it seems like a good car, and the price is kind of in my range (USD 10,000).
Can you guys please guide me and help me to see if this is a good buy for me?

Thank you

Absolutely a good buy at that price, assuming there's nothing wrong. Aside from a general used vehicle inspection, it's a good idea to get a compression test done.
yea I’m definitely gonna get it tested throughly, but i heard that 2014 models have transmission, power steering and stalling problems. Thats what concerns me the most.
unfortunately, that one got sold. but in the past couple of weeks, I have really gotten into the Focus ST and now I am fully convinced that I want to join the ST lifestyle. I am looking for different 2014 models because that's what my budget allows and there are a few available in Dubai. what would you guys suggest I should look for when I go and check the cars out in person?
