That really is low!... How've you managed it? :huh:

I drive around 2500 miles a week in my job, your car doing a "month's worth" of mileage in 11 years is astounding to me!

Yes but a car could have done. huge miles in the first three years then get clocked before there is an mot certificate

Unlikely as it's a one owner, why would you clock it and then keep it for another 7 years and put such a small extra mileage on it, it sounds genuine, although I don't like all those short journeys on it.

Wonder if its been standing a long time causing the tyres to go flat in one area? This is bizarre. Can't get my head round that mileage. What a waste just using it for short journeys. Was the shops next door to her house?

Good on you Mark... It seems as though you have found a little gem of a motor! They are rare, but they do still exist here or there. You certainly won't be doing any harm giving her a decent run out every once in a while either... ir sounds like she needs running in! Let's have a look at her then mate! B)

My dad has had his new C-Max about three months now and only just over 250 miles , what a waste , and he won't even let me drive it haha

Nice find on the Focus , there are probably a few cars around with very little milage on them, just gotta find them
