they would only give me £8,800 for my 11plate S1600 only done just short of 15k miles , they did include 2 years free servicing and that diamondbrite stuff for free and free style pack, but since found out that that option is free anyway..Think im gonna hold out and go look around at other garages
I got £9750 for my 11plate s1600 with 14800 on the clock without them even looking at it , i did tell them it had a bad stone chip with 2 dents on the bonnet but they weren't interested plus i also told my salesman i was taking my spare out plus the jack .
My car was appraised for March as thought my St was arriving about Easter time but didn't get it until 15th April due to delivery problems at Dagenham an handed my p/x over before taking delivery as i did not want to re-tax the car or pay out for the second service plus my front tyres only had the legal limit of tread left , the day i handed my p/x over it was all cleaned up and the first time they'd seen it and they were astounded by how nice it was remarking they should of offered me more !
I was told a price to change in January and get me in my St an they said they were throwing in 3yr gap and paint protection but didn't get me my invoice until the next day !!! When i looked at my invoice in greater detail i noticed the gap an protection were listed on my invoice adding £699 to the price of the car , i questioned this twice but was fed lies saying it was free and then 2 weeks before my car arrived my salesman told me he was leaving for a management job elsewhere .
I then had to deal with the sales manager wen my salesman left and then we had a chat in private with me again questioning the gap insurance an protection an was told it wasn't free as i had always thought an he took it off my bill reducing my price of my st , i told him i didn't ask for them an found out since its how they make more money from you hiking up there commission as well so be warey if they say these are free ?
It was also talking to the manager in the last few weeks of waiting for my car i found out the style pack was free as we looked on his computer wen going over my bill , he read out the spec of my car and i stopped him wen he mentioned free style pack ? I told him it was the first i heard about it being free !!! I Then see it free on autotrader in a ford dealer ADVERTISING a black st2 for £17395 and in my dads ford news mag but only at selected dealers .
The deals may not be around now so much as Ford and the dealers have reached there MARCH REG Figures plus the St has proved big in demand now with big waiting lists after the rave reviews you just have to shop around i think and watch for any deals going about as it keeps changing .
