In Topic: Ford Focus 1.6 With 53K On The Clock???

20 April 2015 - 06:11 AM

don't see anything to worry about - my 07 has just covered 26,600 it had 18,500 when i bought it 5 years ago - i average about 1,600 miles a year so in 15 years i would have recorded 24,000- even with the original mileage i bought it at it will still only be registering 42,500..just think your lucky to find one so low ..what i will say is if you buy it  make sure it's had a recent timing belt change . you could always check the previous mot certificates to verify milage.if he does'nt have them take the last ticket number and reg then do it online - low mileage does'nt necessarily mean low bills ..rubber cracks ..exhausts rot inside out ..fluids deteriorate etc .. i  bought 4 new tyres at 22,000 last ones still had 5mm of tread but were cracked on side walls
