#437558 Returning Ford Focus Owner

Posted by Fastfordman on 17 December 2014 - 08:13 PM

After 18 months away in Volvo land, I am returning to Ford Ownership this weekend. I needed a bigger car and the servicing costs & depreciation were not good on my v40.

So I have purchased my 6th Ford which is a 8mth old Focus Estate with 10k on clock. It's a 1.6 Diesel Zetec Navigator. Car has appearance pack fitted, door guards and rear parking sensors. It's in Deep Impact Blue, which was my 1st choice of colour as i think it's a lovely colour.

I will upload pictures when I get the car.

Pictures of new car, been a bit busy to upload them before now. Done 1300 miles in 3 weeks, loving the car it is very refined to drive, economical 46+ mpg but the power is the best bit it is immense. The torque of the engine is great, it just keeps pulling all the time.

My boss had a 10 plate insignia and the amount of things that went wrong with it was stupid, wheel bearings, engine faults and boot lock breaking constantly in the end he sold it at a loss he was that fed up.

Hi, I think the increase in torque will be more noticeable than the power coming from the 1.6 petrol which lack any. Can I ask how much you paid for the Volvo and what made you choose that over the Mk3 Focus?


Was 19k, 3 months old pre reg with 10miles on clock. The cabin quality is much nicer than my focus and the depreciation on focuses put me off buying another focus in a higher spec.

It's goodbye to Ford Ownership for me now I have traded in my Mk3 Ford Focus Zetec 1.6(125) Petrol for a 13 Plate delivery mileage Volvo V40 D4 SE, which I pick up on Sunday. Its a 2 litre turbo diesel 177 bhp so a bit faster than my current car!.

 

Loved my Focus but wanted something quicker and this car was going at a bargain price nearly £6k of new price and it has only done delivery mileage.
