Fiesta Metal Limited To 1000? - Actually, It Isn't Anymore...
Posted 19 October 2012 - 11:59 AM
Just thought I would share some information I got recently regarding the supposedly limited edition Fiesta Metal. I was told, plus it is well publicised, that the Metal edition was limited to a run of 1,000 cars. I found out a week or so ago that actually Ford has made/sold coming up to nearly twice that amount, which Ford admitted to in reply to an email I sent. However what they did say is that it was never limited...
I thought I would do a bit of investigation, and even managed to get hold of the press release Ford gave out to the media for the car which states that it is limited to 1,000. I now have the Auto Express watchdog team on this, who will be asking Ford why they felt it was acceptable to do that. I'll keep you updated.
Great car, not so great company.

That's my issue with it really, thought having a 'limited' version would at least be worth something (even if it just makes it easier to sell, etc).
But yes, they definitely saw the £ signs...
Will I get anywhere with Auto Express? Maybe, but doubtfall.. Just want to see what Ford say when someone a bit bigger than just one customer gets involved.

Although I was down a ford dealer recently and saw a 60 plate s1600 with 13k miles advertised for £12,750. I bought mine brand new on a 12 plate for £13,000 where's the logic in that?
At least they seem to be holding their value. All this would be the same for the metal I imagine

Did you get sold with the understadning it was limited to 1k production run?

Why have you decided to sell yours so soon?

I'm thinking of pursuing this issue too, the Metal being 'Limited Edition' was certainly an incentive for me to buy.
We just need to establish the financial loss due to increased depreciation to have a genuine claim.

I’ve asked the guy who runs that section for any of the details they might have, but for the moment he hasn’t got back to me. – And I’m only contemplating pursuing it further for the moment.
I didn’t primarily buy it for the ‘limited’ part of it, but it was a nice thing to have (and I did think about residuals) which is why I decided to highlight it.
Anyway – I only did it for the fame…
