2003 Focus Speedometer

My boyfriend and I are thinking about buying this 2003 Ford Focus zx5. Apparently the speedometer sometimes works...but then occasionally it will slowly just start rising...stick about 80 (even when you are going about 20) and then when you go to stop, it just falls to 140 (max) and just doesn't do anything. I know NOTHING about cars... and just want to know if this is an easy fix, or if it is enough to suggest not buying the car...thanks!

Re: 2003 Focus Speedometer

I don't think so. Just the speedometer. And I've driven the car a few more times... sometimes it doesn't do this at all... but sometimes it acts normal until you get up to like 65...and then it just keeps going up to about 80...and then when you stop, it just drops down the right side and doesn't work. (I may have said that in my original post)
