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

Clocked :lol:



Easy to check mileage, look at the old MOT certs. :o


was going to say that, you can enter MOT details to a site and shows mileage at each MOT.


I'm at 22,000 with 2008 focus. (was 14,000 when I bought it in oct 2011)
I will be cutting back on my mileage due to finishing my job and going back to uni to finish my course in sept which ill do only a few hundred a month.

It is serviced every 4 months though.

Will be genuine.
I work in the motor trade... Seen quite a few of 10+ year old cars with less than 15k miles & they do drive great (strange to drive because you know its 10 years old but no rattles an perfect clutch etc) :)

Lowest Ive seen is a V reg Honda with 2800 miles on it...
Bodywork wasn't the best though
