Hi guys,

 

Newbie here so forgive any faux-pas.

 

The missus is after a newish car as I'm fed up of her ragging my mk1.

 

She has about £4-4.5k to spend and naturally I recommended a focus. Her driving will mostly be around town (south london), odd trips to heathrow/gatwick and Swindon.

 

She has narrowed it down to two she is interested in, was just hoping to get some recommendations. I'm personally leaning towards the 1st link but I was under the impression the mk2.5 came out in 2008 rather than 2007, based on the shape of the car.

Many Thanks

I think the 07 one has the 2.5 new shape body but by the looks of it the alloys are still pre 2008 but thats about as far as i go sorry nice looking car tho :)

the reference: http://www.autotrade...age/3?logcode=p I bought my CMAX from the same people, I would strongly advise that given my car was an ex cat D writeoff that you do a HPI check on this if you wanted this car. its an excellent mileage, the petrol 1.8 is very good combination of economy, power and reliability. but as I say, they do sell ex cat D's but they do give a three month warranty which I used.

 

The 2.5 is the early of the new ones, unless its had all bulletins resolved, you may find that you have a few teething issues appear, but the mileage is perfectly reasonable for a car of that age!

 

I would sway closer to the newer car, although slightly higher mileage, theres more on offer in the new shape and more to be configured than the other.
