      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Buying Focus

    Hi, I am thinking of a buying a Ford Focus and was hoping for any advice. I have about £4,000 to spend plus a rusty Ford Puma 1.7 R reg to p/x. Is there any partciluar models of the Focus that provide better value for money, or are more reliable? The Puma engine is still great but unforntuately the body work is falling to bits. I also want a smoother ride, since moving to Leeds i have to drive over potholes everyday and it's a bit of a nightmare so low to the road. I mostly use the car to and from work (5 miles each way but not much standing) and occasioanlly long trips at the w/e. So any tips on what i should be looking for when i go shopping, and particluar problems, or things that should be serviced at certain mileage i.e. any belts need changing. Thanks
