like a main dealer, or a small biz on the side of the road?

Ok quick update - had a good look over the car on Sat, turned the engine on while looking at the engine - the crippling squeaks and rattles weren't coming from the turbo - and because it was cold I could see some heat coming from the back of the engine - turns out the chemical cleaning kit had made it's way up into the egr and loosened it - the rattling was the egr flapping about - so all I had to do was nip it up a bit and all was good to go - the turbo is still whistling slightly but I should be able to sell it fairly easily now - finally a bit of luck!

Good man! glad to see that you have had a bit of positive feedback! surprised that it worked its way into the EGR and wiggled it out!

I know, pretty odd right? I checked out a kio rio yesterday as it's more in my price range than the cee'd - it's a smart looking car, going to go for a test drive next weekend - I liked it apart from the fact I hit my head on the way in lol - also been looking at vw polos as they are doing a years free insurance with them which is cool - so hopefully I can shift this heap and get on to something that will be kinder to me aha

glad to see I may have swayed you a little ;) lol, and the Cee'd's you can get a good price on, as far as quality is concerned, you can safely assume that the quality of the Rio against the Cee'd is like the KA against the Focus.

Whats tempting you to the rio? are you going the newest 88MPG rio? or are you going the older one? in which case what is selling it to you? the drive? the warranty? or the price?

It can't be that much difference surely? lol - I'd be going for the newest model - didn't know it did 88mpg though - mainly the warranty as I know i'll never have to worry about a car falling to bits again lol - for the price I'd ideally like to be paying £150 a month - which I know I'll get with the rio with a £2500 deposit

In the feel of the car (in respect of presentation) I personally feel that it is a difference, but I just think that the rio is too small. 88mpg on the diesel variant, its seemingly a very good small 'family' car.

Warranty is fantastic though :)

Sold my Focus!

Decided to get a cheap run around - picked up a Pug 206 with 26k on the clock for £1200 - this way if anything breaks, I've got cash left over to fix it lol

are you glad to see the back of it?

You still got any thoughts of heading towards the koreans later, or would you return to the Blue?

hell yeah I am - don't think I'll ever get a Ford again tbh - Hopefully I'll be driving this pug until I can afford an Audi - not sure I'll go with Kia just yet - think they need time to grow first - realise what they want to be rather than copying everyone else

true, or till they stop looking over the shoulder of the hyundai design team! lol.

To be fair the likes of the new Kia Optima (potential rival to the Mondeo) its basically the Hyundai i40.

I think they deserve a chance!
