FORD FAIR – SILVERSTONE – 6TH AUGUST 2017
Join us on the Ford Owners Club stand at Ford Fair, Silverstone on Sunday 6th August 2017.
There was a 'catch' on drivethedeal price - apparently even though I went through and entered what I wanted with all the options and it gave me a quote, this quote was not what I asked for but for cars in stock. Two problems with this - the stock cars are not configurable and surprise surprise none were available with what I wanted, secondly they were built a while back and so do not have all the latest features standard on same model but latest build (ed Sony DAB CD which is only on cars built after 1/9/2008). When I spoke to them they said it would be an additional £1500 for a non stock (really new) car. I checked out dealdrivers and their price is almost identical to drive the deal with the extra £1500, but the above put me off drive the deal as I feel it is dishonest way of selling, so if I go for it I will use deal drivers. Aiming to go for test drive this weekend at Ford dealers, will also ask them what their best offer is. Thanks.
found this on 2.0 engine Engine Note: The manual 2.0 TDCI 140ps 6spd engine: co2 and mpg values below relate to this engine if built after 1/9/08. The 2.0 TDCI engine built prior 1/9/08 had co2 emissions of 164 g/km and combined cycle mpg of 44.1. Fuel economy improved from 44.1 to 47.1, is estimated at an approx 2p per mile cost saving, or £1200 over a typical 3 year 60000 mile life of ownership.
Thanks for the reply. On the mpg - where did your figures come from? or are you thinking of the 2.5 engine? The figures I see on Ford web site are S-Max 1.8 TDCi 125ps 45.5 MPG S-Max 2.0 TDCi 140ps 47.1 MPG (another website had this as 44.1) S-Max 2.0 TDCi Auto 38.7 MPG 2.2-litre TDCi 175ps 42.8mpg so not too much in it. 42.8mpg sounds ok.
Just checking prices and I can get the 2.2 cheaper than the 2.0 on drivethedeal with all same options. Anyone know why this might be? Is there any reason someone would prefer the 2.0 to the 2.2, seems a no brainer to me, but am I missing anything? Both are Titanium only difference is the engine?
