Hi,

I am about to buy myself yet another Fiesta for my son. Its 2 years old and a snatched back finance car. Its all ok, no outstanding finance etc and the AA say its a good buy for the money. The problem is that it has no service history (no stamped book). 

I suppose these books can get lost, so, Does anyone know if I can purchase a new book and start from scratch with a Ford service. Its only got 19K on the clock. I see these books are sold on ebay, but is it as easy as that to start a service record.

you can easily buy a new service book, Ford will sell them at a rate, but have a look on ebay, you can often buy them brand new on there, I had the same situation with my CMAX, no manual or service history, quick search on ebay and less than a tenner lighter and I have both!

With any luck the previous owner might have had it serviced where he bought it from, if so they should have the service history for the car, you could always ask, the worst they can say is NO

Yeah, call the local dealer groups and they tend to have there systems networked, so for example, if I call my local Ford Dealer, they can see all dagenham motors, polar ford and some SMC ford, and could tell me that my vehicle hadnt been serviced with them...
