I have seen the above car for £8488 with 42,000 miles on the clock.[/font][/color]

[color=#282828][font=sans-serif]I haven't had a proper look at the car as it was dark at the time but it looks in pretty good condition.[/font][/color]

[color=#282828][font=sans-serif]What do people think about the car, price and mileage?[/font][/color]

[color=#282828][font=sans-serif]I can post a link to the car if people need me to![/font][/color]

[color=#282828][font=sans-serif]Thanks in advance for you advice.[/font][/color]

How much difference between two cars?

Seems expensive. Check auto trader and you'll see 2K cheaper and lower mileage. Diesel is worth the extra cost than petrol though, you'll save a few hundred a year on fuel if you do 10K miles a year.

CJWilliams:
The Focus has more power and is a lot bigger.

CheesyPeteza:
I have managed to get the same car but with a lot lower mileage. From 42,000 to 26,850 miles, plus I got a lot knocked off the car. My brother had the sales guy sweating.

I get 50mpg from my Clio and I'm hoping for 45-50mpg from my Focus.

Picking it up on Saturday.. Excited..

if driven like a granny yeah youll see 45-50..

normal every day driving, id expect 43-47.

I use to get 38-42 in mine doing a mix of short journeys and slightly longer motorway stuff.

To be fair if i did a long motorway trip at 50/60, i would see 50mpg

I do a lot of motorway driving going to and from work.

56 mile round trip each day to work so I need a diesel. I don't drive like a granny but I do drive sensibly (can't afford driving convictions in my line of work!)

Realistically I'm getting 48-50mpg.

ah then youll probably be ok.
