I'm glad mine's safely on the drive as I can't afford a 600 increase!

On the radio today I heard that Ford had said they were blaming the weak euro....although I thought it had improved slightly just recently?

I've just priced up my car on ford's website and its shocking how much it would cost today....

13,420 (not including the 500 "ford saving") so come 1st july, its going to cost 14,020! :o :o :o :o :o How can ford charge that much for a small car!

Bearing in mind how many times they have put up their prices I reckon, for the Fiesta and KA at least, that they launched them at a cut down price so they could say they were cheaper than the outgoing models and then had to put the prices up to bring them back to what they should cost anyway.

Having said that - what point is there in putting up an RRP when everyone who buys one of their cars can get 2,000+ discount even on the cheaper models (can only imagine what kind of discount you can get on a top of the range Mondeo or Galaxy)
