Re: 2003 Focus SVT
At 122k mls , it's above average for year , especially as it has been unused for a while . How long has car been of the road ? As for battery cutting out when wipers turned on , probably due to draining whatever power was left in flat battery , but make sure alternator is charging o.k . You really are advised to get a mechanic or someone experienced to go with you when buying a car of that mileage , otherwise you may end up with a money pit . Also a lot depends on whether you are buying from a dealer or private sale re. vehicle check , previous owners , service history , accident damage , any warranty etc. etc.
