Hi There Everyone :D

I feel a bit cheeky about asking this but I have been looking on this site for the last few days and you seem a very friendly bunch of car enthusiasts like myself and as i am interested in getting either the 1.4 Titanium (Body Kit & Blutooth) in White or to get the Zetec S in white with bluetooth i thought there is no one better to ask than those of you that already have one :D

The only fear i have is that the Zetec S is going to drink as much as the car i have now does (That being a 2008 207cc in blue with loadsa extras on it)

My pug is 1.6 Petrol and im lucky to get 30-35mpg combined.

SO my question to you all is:

What car do you have?
What size Engine is it?
Diesel or Petrol?
What sort of driving do you do in it?
and What combined MPG are you getting out of it?
and how many miles have you done so far?



Thank you for you help :)

Kind Regards

Lucy :D

I have a 1.4 titanium, and loving it, i wanted a 1.6 but got advised as i drive into london every day, it isnt going to get me there any quicker as im always stuck in slow traffic, sooo got a 1.4 in titanium with xtras, so saved money on 1.6 an spent it on different wheel, power button an key less entry.

what prices have you got so far from fords ? oooh and white? are u sure? lol

Thank you to those of you who have replied so far :)

my reasons for considering a 1.4 titanium is that i do an 8 mile round trip to work, stop start (roundabouts, junctions etc) and on the weekends i drive 25 mile to my boyfriends one way which is B roads.. so i can reach a steady 50-60 mph. I thought for those reasons that the titanium might be more economical for me.

THEN

My brain took over and made me start to think about the 1.6 Zetec S as it looks the cats whiskers!

hence why i am now stuck in this quandry :(

i will await further replies and see what people are telling me..

as far as prices go.... this is another major problem i am having...

for my 08 plate 207cc with cream leather, heated seats, rear parking sensors & Sports pack they will only give me 8500!

i OWE 5800 still on it.... which doesnt leave me very much of a deposit to get my monthly payments down.

the best my local ford can do it 230 a month over 5 YEARS!!! something i wont take up lightly, not only that they wanted me to buy a car without having even test driving it first..again something else i am not prepared to do.... am i on my own here? or am i being old fashioned?

Cant believe that your dealer wont give you a test drive. Dont touch the car without one.

I was just shocked at how little they offered me for my car :(

the 1.4 Titanium with body kit & Bluetooth in White would be the one I'd choose but check out 'deal drivers' - you might be able to save a fair few quid to put towards more optional extras ;)

230 a month over 5 years with a 2.7k deposit seems an awful lot. What APR are they charging?

Like a previous poster, I use my 1.4 to get too & from work in rush hour london, its fine for that, I wouldn't say it was under powered - the new fezzy is lighter than the old one.

at 6 months old it was recalled to have a new engine fitted after i had gone back to the garage at least 4 times and said to them that something was wrong with it!

New engine has been fitted now and all is dandy with the car... runs really nicely... its just a bit of a heavy drinker and the stop start journeys i do kills the fuel ... but looking at the figures at the moment, i may have to stick with it for another 6-9 months and review the situation then.
