I had toyos and found them to be long lasting. I got 20000 miles at least out of the front before I changed them.

Only thing I wasn't that impressed with was grip in the wet. They just use to slide. Having said that I did ask a lot of them.

Blackcircles was the best price when I got mine. Delivered and fully fitted at a local garage.

God I miss that car. Diesel focus I got now still a really good drive but no where near as sharp as the zetec s. Shame that I had to sell it.

I still think they are duty bound to fix it. It may not be covered under warranty but it surely has broken your statutory rights. It's not of satisfactory quality.

They will try and get out of anything.

You should go on honest johns website and ask the question see what response you get back. There's a lot of useful info on there

Surely if you have only had the car a few weeks then you are legally allowed to take it up with the supplying dealer under the supply of goods act. Your purchase must meet your statutory rights one of them being satisfactory quality.
I believe anything that is wrong within the first 6 months of purchase is deemed to have been faulty when the car was supplied to you and you are legally entitled to have the fault rectified

You do have to take wear and tear on a second hand car into account but I think you can safely say paint on a car should last more than 2 years. As an aside I have a 12 plate focus titanium x in what looks like the same colour and I don't have that issue on mine.

These links may help ( if they work)

It says if it's a purchase under 6 months and you have accepted the goods it is on the supplying dealer to prove the fault wasn't present when they sold it to you.

Upshot is. Phone them and ask what they are prepared to do.

Good luck

Not sure about selling it as it's on finance so technically it's not your car.

But you can definatly trade it in. Get a settlement quote so you know what you owe. Then when and if you do the deal they will pay off your finance with what your car is worth. If there is any left over that is some deposit. If it's not worth as much as you owe you can either pay the difference or I assume they could add it in to your new finance deal.

You have to open the door then there is an access panel on the side of the dash you can remove. I think you just pop it out as it's clipped in.

Then you will see two plastic tangs. Squeeze them together and push the light switch out of the dashboard.
