Ford Focus 1.5 TDCi Diesel 88 kW (120 hp) for sale

Selling my Ford Focus, fully loaded and all. Bought it in Nov 2016 for 350,000 CZK, selling it now almost 3 years later for 100,000 CZK cheaper. Feel free to contact me to arrange a viewing and/or a test drive, and if you agree to purchase it, I'll offer you a set of winter tires worth 5,000 CZK as a bonus.

Tech. specs:
• 2015 Ford Focus SW (combi)
• 1.5 liter engine, 1.5L DURATORQ-TDCI DIESEL
• Power: 88 kW, or 120 hp
• 6-speed manual transmission
• Fuel efficiency: 4.5l / 100 km in the books, tested consumption 4.5 - 5.0 l / 100 km (I track this month by month and I know for sure)
• 73,900 km

• Voice controls
• Tire pressure monitor
• GPS nav with visual and audio traffic alerts and speed limits
• Traffic alerts (road works, road closures, etc) on the touch-screen monitor, with suggestions to take alternate routes if needed

• Phone book download supported, meaning you can call your phone contacts directly from the car's touch screen without having to touch your phone. You can also use voice commands to call someone by the name you saved them in your address book - much faster than browsing through the contact list.
• Call controls (pick up, hang up, volume up / down) on the steering wheel. Pick up and hang up controls on the central touch screen
• Multimedia, radio, cruise and speed limit controls right on the steering wheel
• USB connectors, a few of them

• Spare tire (this comes by default, but I thought I'd mention it)

• Heated windshields (really useful in the winters, all I do is stay inside for 3 - 5 minutes and all the snow / frost is gone from both)
• Heated seats
• Heated steering wheel
• Electric windows on all 4 doors, centrally controlled from the driver’s side
• Automatically open/close all windows with the key fob
• Automatic folding/unfolding mirrors when locking/unlocking the car

• Baby seat system (ISOFIX I think it’s called)
• Door access can be disabled so baby can’t open it
• Window access can be disabled as well, for the same reason (from the driver’s door)

• Tinted windows and windshield (back)

• Hill-hold control, so the car won’t roll backwards when taking off from a hill - configurable in the menu
• Parking sensors in the front, back and sides. Can be disabled with the touch of a button
• Visual representation of obstacle proximity on the touch-screen display, when parking or approaching an obstacle

• Car can self-park by itself in parallel with other parked cars, or perpendicularly. Driver operates the gas and brake pedals only

• ABS of course
• Electronic transmission control (it is on by default, but can be disabled if you're feeling adventurous. You'll have to navigate through the settings menu, there's no dedicated button for that)

• Central locking / unlocking of all doors from driver’s door
• Height-adjustable seats
• Height and depth adjustable steering wheel
• Visual and sound alerts if your passenger doesn’t has the safety belt on
• Visual and sound alerts if departing when doors are not completely closed, or hand brake is engaged

• Serviced only at the Ford dealership at Autopalace Sporilov
• Tech. inspection and STK good until Feb 2021
• Oil good until 79,000 km (I changed it before I hit 69,000 km)

• Car is quite powerful. Although it has only 120 hp, I need to be careful when trying to be the first at the green light, as I easily lose grip if I push the gas too hard. Happens easily in the 1st and 2nd gear.

• If somebody else will drive the car, you can program the 2nd key to have a maximum speed limit of your choice, and give the key to the 2nd driver. When the car will be started with your key (the main one) all restrictions are lifted.

• Issues:
• Air leaking from front left tire and rear right. Front left tire leaks air until it goes down to 1 bar then it stops at that pressure, and I need to inflate it once every two days. Rear right tire leaks slowly, and I inflate it once every 3-4 days. The car notifies me when air pressure is low, that's how I know. These are both recent issues and I haven't had the time to take the tires to a pneuservis yet.

• Car has been hit by other cars while parked... twice. In both situations the front and rear bumper were hit, and parking sensors were damaged. The car was drivable afterwards, but because parking sensors were damaged too, I couldn't use the self-parking feature. Not that this is a deal breaker for me, but if I paid for a car that can self-park itself, I want to use that feature. Luckily, my insurance took care of everything, got both bumpers fully replaced with new ones, as well as the parking sensors.

• Once I drove too close to a truck that threw a rock right in the middle of the windscreen, cracking it in three places. That was an irreparable damage, and my insurance replaced the windshield with a brand new one.

• All these reparations were made by Ford at Autopalace Sporilov, I didn't take the car elsewhere. These reparations are recorded in the Ford databases, as well as in the history book.

• About one year ago, the right mirror stopped folding when locking / unlocking the car. I solved the issue with a bit of silicone oil and now if folds / unfolds as expected - I didn't need to take it to the Ford service for that.

• Minor cosmetic issues that come naturally with time when driving and parking on the street. Nothing major.
If I remember anything else, I’ll update this list later

Some pictures:

Another outside view

Inside view

Spacious trunk

Optional accessory, in case you want to tow an RV or a trailer

Under the hood there's a relatively small-capacity 1.5 liter engine, but powerful: 88 kW (or 120 hp)

The label with the VIN number, in case you want to run it by yourself

Service book (it has been updated since this picture was taken), as well as the two key fobs you'll be getting

Self-park mode: car found an available space on the left, and it is about to self-park itself in that space. Don't worry about the German language, the interface is offered in several languages, including English and Czech.

The boat-like area around the car represents the safe distance around it. If something gets closer, the gray bars turn yellow then red, and it shortens to visually tell you how close you are to the obstacle. Once you're too close (around 30 cm), the car will continuously beep and tell you to stop. Alert is visual as well as audio (a beeping that increases as you approach the obstacle)

Don't worry about the German language, the interface is offered in several languages, including English and Czech.

Next, I'm sharing the fuel economy from the previous months:

April fuel consumption
May fuel consumption

June fuel consumption
July fuel consumption. Almost 3,000 km done with 4.7 liters / 100 km is good.
August fuel consumption. 1313 km done with a fuel consumption 4.3 liters / 100 km is not bad at all.

I take these photos on a monthly basis, for fuel-tracking reasons. The September month is still in progress, and as of now I drove around 500 km with a fuel average of 4.3 liters / 100 km.

I'm not a dealer, I'm a private seller, so please ignore the AUTOVOKO logo on the license plates. The photos were taken by the dealer I bought the car from.

• For a fast and easy transaction, I'm happy to throw in a set of winter tires worth 5,000 CZK, as a bonus for you. Feel free to contact me to arrange a viewing and / or a test drive, and I'll be happy to talk to you.
