Hi all!

 

Just wanted to say hello. I've just bought a 2 year old focus and got a great deal on a titanium model. yey for me! Should have it by the end of the week or early next week, I really can't wait.

 

Its got a few added extras above the titanium, so no doubt I'll be asking how to use the them all :)

 

Paul

Thanks :)

 

This is probably the first car I've actually been quite excited about. My current car a VW Golf i got because 'everyone wants and loves a golf' had it just over 6 months and I just don't like it! My previous car was a 1.2 new shape corsa which i did like, but was too under powered and small.

 

Looking forward to testing out the 1.6 ecoboost engine properly!

 

Its also a fetching Candy Yellow one, took some convincing to get it but the dealer offered me a good deal and I love the colour now ha!

Saying that ive seen a mk6 fiesta Zetec S that colour and I must say it actually looks great! Plus I'd imagine it'd be fairly unique I doubt you'll see many of them that colour about which is always a good thing!

I told myself as it was not popular colour, it will be a collectors car in years to come  :D

I got my car yesterday! It is amazing! I its actually got more gadgets than I thought. Not sure how they did the range when the new shape came out but its a titanium but with better than titanium x specs.

I was also quite impressed i got free breakdown cover.
Accident cover which you probably all know but I didn't for the lifetime of the car. Having had my previous car written off this will be much easier should that ever happen again.

Quite impressed with ford dealers and the brand so far!

welcome to the family Paul...

 

So its always good to hear positive dealer experiences, who is the dealer and what was the real clincher to make you appreciate them?

It was Jennings Ford in Gateshead.
 

I think it was just how helpful and not pushy the guy was from the start. I was really unsure what engine I wanted, all I knew is I wanted a Focus. So he let me test drive various engines to find which one I liked before he started trying to find me a car, which took a lot of time and no guarantee that I'd even buy one. He did manage to talk me into the candy yellow one in the end too so I think that pleased him. I got the car for a fantastic price.
 

Also when I bought the car I moaned there wasn't much petrol in it, so today he took me to the petrol station to fill it up, had a couple of little things which needed doing such as a rattle in the door which they fixed today, I mentioned the battery low warning I got a few times, he said to just give it a few runs  but bring it straight back if there is a problem as it had just been serviced which didn't pick up anything. I also forgot my tax disk off my old car and they went and got it for me, even gave the the form I needed to send it back to DVLA, little things like that that makes the difference.
 

I basically got everything I asked for and more and with all the additional stuff you get (I'm assuming with all fords?) such as the  European accident repair service and European breakdown cover.
 

Never had any of that when I got a Corsa, then a Golf.

Always good to hear positive things! I used to live in Teeside, and my parents always went to Jennings, if they could stretch down here, I wouldnt hesitate to buy a car from them!

Hey a local...welcome...Ive used jennings in both gateshead and washington...Very good customer service and will do anything you ask them. I typically use washington as gateshead is always busy when something fails on my car.

 

But yeah again welcome...Oh if you need a diagnostic doing, give me a shout i will be able to hook up my laptop using my clone dealership tool and give you a run down on what its found etc especially as im probs just round the corner (in felling - good end lol)
