  1. What Would You Do?

    Hi guys Thanks for your replies! I don't think I would keep a car if I took it out on Options but I've been changing my cars fairly frequently in the last few years so that might be a better move than the HP. However, I'll look into the Ford Acquire financing when I'm in the garage later in the week. I'm quite torn as I really like my diesel and would like the 1.6 tdci for extra power but as I've changed job recently I have drastically cut my weekly mileage so much that it is almost not worth noting - a 6 mile round trip daily! Therefore the Ecoboost would be the best choice from what I can see. However, I do travel to relatives a few times a year doing a round trip of 600 miles each time up and down the A1. Bottom line is I suspect my usual weekly mileage which is dropping from around 350 to 30 with the odd longer trip with my wife at weekends and on holidays. I'll let you know how I get on with the test drive! Cheers, Roddy
  2. What Would You Do?

    Hi I am new to the forum today, but have driven Ford Fiestas for around twenty years now. I've tried a few other makes through the years but have always returned to the Fiesta. I currently have a 2011 Edge in the 1.4 Tdci engine, great mpg at around 60 for me. Miss the higher spec of the zetec and zetec blue that I had before. I saw a 2010 titanium 1.6 Tdci in black at a local garage for £9295 and it's only done 20,000 miles. Spec looks great and car seems in good condition. Then I thought it might be better just going for a brand new titanium in the ecoboost, on options. If I go for the used I would finance using ordinary hp? Am going to test drive an ecoboost this week. What would you do??? Thanks! Roddy
