Buying a Used Focus...
Posted 22 September 2008 - 05:16 PM
Tidy car, but no service history at all - the dealer selling the car had make some phone calls and tracked the last services back (I also phoned the main dealer where the only owner got the car from and they match). My question is should I walk away from this car as lack of service histroy. Also does this open up any room for me to negoiate price (need some tips on haggling as well!).
Everything 'feels' right, but want to get an RAC mechanic to check it out, but should I move on? How sure can I be on mileage?
Any advice from those in the know will be hugely appreciated!
I only know the service miles back to 2006, as that was with the main dealer, after that I do not know IF the previous owner had another service, plus any miles she has or hasn;t done in the last 2 years.

small dealer why so cheap ask the question (The person who is afraid to ask is the one who gets ripped off)

Is the garage offering warranty? Also think of your resale value, it is slightly harder to get rid of cars with less service history!

Haven't seen many, so could only gage the price against the 1.6 and 1.8s.

What does ESP do (don;t laugh )
