Ford Focus Mk1 RS & ST170 : First generation 2002 to 2005 Paperback / softback
Part of the Essential Buyer's Guide series
Ford's Focus Mk1 was a game-changing family hatchback, setting new standards for ride, handling and driver enjoyment.
The sporty ST170 was noted for being a top-notch all-rounder, while the rapid RS broke the mould for front-wheel-drive hot hatchbacks, offering outstanding ability on road or track.
Today, the ST170 and Mk1 RS are highly-regarded driver's machines, while gradually gaining cult status - and increasing value - among classic collectors. But both machines suffer the potential for rust, neglect, abuse and accident damage - which makes buying one a task that's fraught with risk.
To help the would-be RS or ST driver, this quick-reference guide acts as a handy pocket-sized companion during the purchasing process.
It aims to help buyers select the best car, pay the right price and avoid any pitfalls. Written by a motoring journalist, long-term fast Ford enthusiast and Focus ST owner, this one-stop package of great advice includes at-a-glance tips, illustrated in-depth inspection guidance, specifications, real-world cost considerations and even notes on which modifications to avoid.
