In Topic: * Fiesta Ford Options Query?

18 December 2014 - 09:27 AM


Thanks for your replys.

The Options Cash Plan is similar to a PCP purchase and still has a GMFV figure but has no monthly payments.

I will be paying around two thirds of the total car price including the £750 contribution, as a deposit and only the GMFV figure to pay at the end, or earlier.

As stated, there are no monthly payments and the interest is calculated on the GMFV figure and, charge for credit is divided into the period of the loan is over so, if you pay off the GMFV figure after two months, you only pay two months interest plus a reduced final payment.

That's exactly the same for me; my local dealer could not (or would not) give me a decent deal so I searched around drivethedeal, orangewheels and I've ended up with CarWow. 


I've had around 8 offers for the Titanium X and the best prices are mostly within 40 miles from me b, another dealer was 152 miles away and they had the best prices so I asked one or two of the nearest CarWow dealers to match the lower price and they agreed.


I've chosen one and messaged them to say I was quite happy with the price and asked for further information about the options for purchase and part ex so, I'm waiting for them to get back to me.


If you fancy exchanging info about the deal and part ex prices you got, I'd like to compare so, if your up for it it, you can PM me and I'll reply back.


To be honest, I was, and still am, a little unsure of buying in this way but, when I thought about it, all CarWow do is get decent discounts from their Ford Dealers, we then access them and if happy, contact and dealer of our choice direct, just as we would do with our local dealers so, I don't think there is much to worry about.

In Topic: Fiesta "service Indicator"

Hi Keith

Thanks for the info.

I'm now about two weeks over the date and my car is going in tomorrow for it's first service but, I've still not seen the service indicator and I'll ask why it has failed to display itself tomorrow.

I don't think it was enabled during the PDI?

My Start/Stop is a bit random and I think that there is a software fix for it?

Did you have the fix applied or, is your start/stop ok?

Hi Willy


Thanks for your reply.


I'm also changing up from the Titanium to the TX because I like the extra toys.  The rear sensors are standard and I've added the front so that I get the 'park pilot' software and the 'pretty coloured display' :P   It's not that I need the sensors - I'm an HGV driver and have been driving for 39 years but, even so, no one is infallible and, it's reassuring to have a 'second pair of eyes' as a 'back-up', just in case.


No 'dress up kit' for me though; although it looks great on the Fiesta, I'm really too old to have that fitted to my car and, more importantly, my 'boy racer' days are over (if I ever was one, "back in the day").  :)


Another advantage of getting a new Fiesta is that, like hundreds of owners, I was looking forward to using SYNC to the full on my 2013 Fiesta but now find that we have SYNC 1.0 which does not support 'AppLink'' and cannot be upgraded.


I believe the newer Fiesta's should have SYNC 1.1 with AppLink but, I will confirm that before placing the order?


I forgot that the centre headrest is standard; I'll have to remove that from my options.


BTW, I hope you don't mind me asking but, are you 'part exing' your present car?  I was hoping to but, with 450 miles on the clock since new, and at least 6 options including active city stop, 5 years warranty, all I've been offered is £8,500 so, I can't let my car go for that much so I think I'll try and sell it privately.
