i have been talking to a nice guy from ford online about trading the fezza in for a 60 plate focus and heres the price for mine its a 2009 59 ford fiesta 1.4 tdci 5 door zetec vision blue with bluetooth imaculate condition 15000 miles and he has offered me 8750 for it i am so shocked that is all its worth as it was 12500 only 9 months ago (not that i doubt his valuation in any way) and he has quoted me for a 60 plate ford focus 1.6 tdci zetec 110 bhp with sony surround and dab and 17 inch wheels and tinted glass for 14720 in colorado red , watcha think ??????? thanks in advance for your views :)

I think you need to keep a car for more than ten minutes. Trading in a car that new seems really pointless to me unless you're really unhappy with it. The bulk of the depreciation happens as soon as the car rolls off the forecourt and in the first year of ownership and following that it slows.

Ford Fiesta Hatchback 1.4i Zetec 3dr 2008 (08) 30,000 miles
Dealer 8,260
Private 7,410
Part exchange 6,865
Trade 6,610
Cost new 12,795


Ford Fiesta Hatchback 1.4i Zetec 3dr 2009 (09) 20,000 miles
Dealer 9,470
Private 8,550
Part exchange 7,885
Trade 7,575
Cost new 13,395


Total depreciation after one year - 29.4%
Total depreciation after two years - 35.5% (based on dealer sale from list price at time of purchase)

In my opinion you're better off hanging on to the Fez for at least another year.

The valuation you have recieved is nowhere near the money.

seems pointless trading in a 59 plate fiesta for a 60 plate and having to pay an extra 6k or more?? you might aswell buy a bigger better car if your gonna do that? just my opinion tho?

If you really love the Focus you're better off buying used, the residuals are so poor, you can get some excellent bargains. Infact, haven't you just bought your own car? Who is this for!?

its for me and dad, ill will drive it occasionly , he just misses the rear leg room and boot space and the extra power , the 1.4 tdci is fine for 1 or 2 peoples load but when u got boot full and 4 people in it , it can be near on dangerous :)

Looks pricey to me...
One thing to bear in mind is the Focus is going to be replaced in about 6 months (see pic at the top of this very page B) ). The current model residuals are likely to be hit hard when that comes out, so make sure that's factored in to the price. Or wait a while and get the current Focus even cheaper as it's run out (or be first in line for one of the new models if you're feeling brave...)

this is what we was originally going to do wait for a special edtion current focus ( like the fiesta zetec blue) to come out with loads of extras on it but dirt cheap and buy then , but i dont no the official relase date for the new one, me and dad have been looking around alot of ford dealers lately and simmular speced fiestas are more expensive than focuses even thou it a smaller car as the new fiesta is the current new model , so even now it seems a good time to buy, but i think thy will carry the current focus on fr a while (lik the clio campus and 206) for bargain seekers and for people like me who hate the new focus :):) ergghhhh so confused on what to do , keep fezza, change now, or wiat hmmmmm hmmmm lol

I'm confused...you said in an earlier post that the Fiesta was your mum's so by that statment the car aint even yours to sell!

Then there is your bucket of junk clio, or had you forgotten about that? For somebody who dislkes Ford's seems to be changing their story every day.

As others have said, its pointless going from a 59 plate to a 60 plate. Most people with new cars will change between year's 2 and 3 (like myself) as the loss in money is nowhere near as bad.
