I,today, bought a 57 plate Focus 1.8 tdci Ghia. I traded my 2000 X VW Golf GT TDi 1.9 for it. This was because the Golf was getting old, starting to creak and groan, and the tax was £220. Repairs were becoming more frequent, and more expensive.
While I'm a little sad the Golf has gone, I'm looking forward to enjoying the Focus...I'm impressed so far(all 10 miles of it!!!).
