Help And Advice On Selling My Car!!

04 November 2014 - 10:00 AM

HI Guys 


After 3 happy long Years of owning my Focus MK2, I have decided to sell as I been offered a company car. 


But after a month on I have been struggling to even to get any viewings for my motor. I think the price I have put it up as is very reasonable and I have looked at Autotrader, We Buy Any Car and ect to gauge the price. Ive put the price below  some competition with same spec, price and mileage 


Ive posted my ads on Auto trader, Piston Heads, Gumtree, Free Ads, a Window ad and even on this forum.  But I've had hardly any interest after a month, all the photo I've taken are clear and shows the car very well. 


The cars Spec: 

Ford Focus Ghia Metallic blue, 45000 miles, Full service history, Rear Parking sensors, Height adjustable driver?s seat, Steering wheel rake adjustment, All round electric windows, Automatic dimming rear view mirror, Folding rear seat, Cruise control, Electric heated windscreen, Passenger airbag, Side airbags, Immobiliser , Space saver spare wheel, Isofix child seat anchor points, Rear armrest, 3x3 point rear seat belt, Front fog lights, Trip computer, Air conditioning, Alloy wheels, Electric door mirrors, Drivers airbag, Remote central locking & Alarm, Steering wheel reach adjustment, Lumbar support, JVC Radio/MP3/CD with Bluetooth, Audio remote control, Child locks, Traction control, Tow Bar added, remote boot unlock, rubber floor matts and boot floor matt added, Mud flaps added all round. Drives perfectly and starts and runs perfect. , Had a DPF recharge and top up at 38000 miles at Ford dealership., Has had new front tyres fitted February of this year., Selling due to downgrade size of car., BLUE, 5 seats, £3,600


I have drop the price from a optimistic £4100 to £3600 but no interest. I really do not want to go down the We Buy any car route as I will get peanuts. But its already cost me £100 in advertisement costs.
