OK, Fords are overpriced in the first place and there are big discounts to be had off new motors but still. At Motorpoint you can often see year old Focus's at 50% discount to new.

[size="4"]I know its crazy how quick they loose there value.
. I was looking the other day at a 2 year old 2.0 zetec in black but it was modified to look identical to the [b]2.5 ST[/b] u couldnt tell it apart if u tried. And it was only £7000
. Compare that with something like a new zetec its about £7000 cheaper in 2 years
. Anyone who buys a brand new ford outright is crazy
The majority of new fords on the road "mainly fiesta's and the Focus" are young kids getting them on the Options and just returning after the 18 months or Motability scheme from there nan or grandads mobility allowance.
If i purchased a new car which im hoping to do when im back working full time i would [b]lease[/b] one. Its the most popular scheme at the moment.
Leasing sites now offer a brand new BMW 3'series or Audi A4's for around £290 a month on a 2 year contract. Thats including tax and warranty if anything goes wrong with it.
