Goodbye Ford Focus

14 posts in this topic

It's goodbye to Ford Ownership for me now I have traded in my Mk3 Ford Focus Zetec 1.6(125) Petrol for a 13 Plate delivery mileage Volvo V40 D4 SE, which I pick up on Sunday. Its a 2 litre turbo diesel 177 bhp so a bit faster than my current car!.

Loved my Focus but wanted something quicker and this car was going at a bargain price nearly £6k of new price and it has only done delivery mileage.

New Car

At least we can take solace in the fact that it is essentially a ford focus underneath :D

Good luck with the new car

I think most of the current range of Volvos are still based on Ford platforms. The V40 even looks a similar shape to the Focus.

Where the Chinese will go with future models is a different matter though....

Hi, I think the increase in torque will be more noticeable than the power coming from the 1.6 petrol which lack any. Can I ask how much you paid for the Volvo and what made you choose that over the Mk3 Focus?

Yep the chassis is definitely a focus one, everything else is volvo.

Was 19k, 3 months old pre reg with 10miles on clock. The cabin quality is much nicer than my focus and the depreciation on focuses put me off buying another focus in a higher spec.

The V40 is a nice car, and something a bit different from the normal BMW 1 series, Audi A3 etc that dominate the premium hatch market. Hope you enjoy your new car :)

Pictures of new car, been a bit busy to upload them before now. Done 1300 miles in 3 weeks, loving the car it is very refined to drive, economical 46+ mpg but the power is the best bit it is immense. The torque of the engine is great, it just keeps pulling all the time.
