  1. Bit of a drag up but check the heatshield underneath the boot, near your exhaust. I have a rattle on mine when I closed the boot/driving along and it's a loose heat shield around the back box.
  2. Just an update guys. Went to see the Focus this morning and had a good test drive in it. Felt really nice and drove really smooth and without any squeals, knocks, bangs creaks etc. It had a couple of cosmetic issues which they are going to sort out in the paint shop tomorrow and will be collecting it on Tuesday morning all being well. Thanks for all the advice & fingers crossed it'll be a great car as was my old Focus. Here's she is :D
  3. Cheers guys. Plenty of stuff to remember and take onboard and I appreciate all the input. The car is at a franchised dealer and I've done a basic HPI check on it anyway and it's come back clean. Just need to jot down some notes about what to look for. Thanks again.
  4. Over the coming weekend I'm going to look at a 2006 '56 plate Focus diesel with 58k on the clock from a local(ish) franchise dealer. Has anyone got any good advice on things to look for with regards a diesel Focus, or just general car buying advice in general. I will be trading in my current 2001 Focus 1.6 LX against any potential buy. Thanks in advance for any helpful hints :)
  5. Hi everyone. Gaz here from East Yorkshire. Currently have a 2001 Focus 1.6LX but fingers crossed will be trading in for a 56-plater Focus Zetec 1.8 TDCi this weekend. It'll be the first diesel I've owned but with only 58k on the clock I'm looking forward to many years of happy motoring :D
