Hi there folks. After having a nightmare of a Nissan Almera for almost two years I am picking up my "new-to-me" car on Wednesday. I have been able to get hold of a 53 plate Focus 1.6 Ghia with a shade over 70k on the clock for what I think is a decent price from http://www.discountcarsstockton.co.uk/ I is very neat and tidy, the test drive was wonderful, no unwanted noises or pulling to one side or anything like that. The MOT history is clean as a whistle with only a couple of fails for consumables such as tires and bulbs. Before I took it out on test the dealer got an auto locksmith out to sort out the bonet lock too. It seems to be a brilliant motor and I hope it will last me a long time. I'll post pictures as soon as I can. Al.
