Focus isn't a bad car, so long as it hasn't dissolved. About as exciting as a grey pair of trousers, but there's a reason that they're everywhere. ...which makes getting parts trivial.
But it's a Ford and will need parts all the time, then the same parts again a few weeks later.
My brother had a 3 year old one that was an ex disability car and on the face of it was mint.
It had 20 years worth of rust underneath and everything plastic snapped if you looked at it, especially the lock barrels.
I hated the damn thing and I hated fixing it even more.
It was the second and last Ford in my care.
I get harassed to fix my labourers new Puma, I just smile and give him the auto trader website on my phone.
I sincerely hope it's an in-between car for your nephews sake.
