Im Chris and 23 from Maidstone kent
As always when i buy a new car i look for the owners club forum for a bit of banter and info so i look forward to speaking to you all!
Right now for the question. Im looking to buy a 2006 1.6 TDCI focus tomorrow for the girlfriend for around 3.2k
Car has 97k miles on the clock but that does not fuss me as i know these cars run for forever when regualary serviced. Comes with full ford service history bar 1.
Now i have had a look around on he net and people are saying the timing belt gets done at 125k. Would you agree with this? (I was thinking 100k)
Also i contacted the dealer selling the car with 1 year warrenty regarding it possibly being due, and asked if it went would the warrenty cover it?
He replyed no, if it fails prematurely then you would have to approach ford themselves.
So my question is, would ford pay for the damage done and replacement if it went? Because something tells me they wouldnt.
Also if you guys know of any common problems to look out for when viewing the car tomorrow, please do let me know as that would be greatly appreciated!
