2013 Focus ST with the more difficult to find ST3 package. Recaro leather seats are a must have for this car. It has all the bells and whistles offered back then.

The car runs great and is a blast to drive. No major mechanical issues to report. I’m selling because I need something more practical for my two kids.

Noteworthy upgrades include
* big turbo (Garrett GT 2870)
* Upgraded intercooler
* Cobb Accessport ($600)
* turbo back exhaust (practical and not obnoxiously loud)
* blow off valve (mostly just for fun but it sounds cool)
* custom tunes done on dino at Edge Autosport in Englewood (note: cheap tunes ruin these cars and Edge is reputable and known for providing safe and effective tuning.) Tunes include e30 and 91. The car makes 390whp on e30. It’s more than enough to have some fun and not enough to blow it up.

New clutch a couple thousand miles ago. Regular maintenance done. Tires are great.

The car does decent on fuel as well. 29mpg dependent on your right foot.

The car has clearly been well cared for. At this, it’s still 11 years old and has its quirks. Known issues include:
* 2nd gear synchronizer acts out if you go down hard into second- it pops out of gear when you down shift too hard. No problem going up. I just skip 2nd when down shifting and haven’t seen any issue.
* There’s a number of bumps and bruises inside and out (did my best to picture them all), nothing major. The car looks great for 11 years old but is also 11 years old…
* it has hit two small deer in its life. VIN check at your own expense and it will show NO structural damage.
* I lost the backup key out of the key fob. This is a nightmare if the car battery dies with the doors locked and hood closed (locks are entirely electrical so you can’t “jimmy” your way in). To add to this, there’s a light that sometimes stays on when you turn the car off. If you restart and stop this light turns off. Easy enough but annoying nonetheless. If you’re not looking for it, the battery will die. A locksmith can fix the key side of this problem for $200-300; I haven’t done it because I live 2 hours from the nearest locksmith. I’ve just made the habit of popping the hood every time I stop. This is reflected in asking price.
* Has the infamous airbag light on. Common issue with all the Fords of this era.
* Missing cargo cover and a couple trim pieces in the back- jack and spare rattle a bit. Stereo fixes this.

There are a ton of people out there selling these who are completely out of touch with reality. Yes, these cars (especially with clean titles) are becoming more and more rare considering they were discontinued 6 years ago. Yes, with certain parameters, these cars hold their value and show signs of appreciation. This all being said, the car isn’t worth the $15-20,000 people are asking out there. That’s insane. The asking price of $7,999 is based off comparables, the KBB median price of $9,498, the car’s known quirks and my desire to sell quickly.

Without saying price is firm, offers are welcome but the price is justified by evidence. I absolutely do not have time for lowball offers and will not respond to them accordingly. At the same time, I want this car to go to someone who will make memories with it. I would love to help coordinate that. Fire away with questions.

Test drives welcomed with valid driver’s license and proof of insurance. If you didn’t know already, the car is a manual. If you can’t drive stick, a test drive of my car is not the time to learn. I’ll gladly take you for a test drive if you’re new to stick and you can perfect your skill once it’s yours : )

Due to highway 50 chaos, if you live west of the closure but want to see the car, let me know and we can get creative together.

Cash only. Would possibly trade for something boring like a CRV
