Yes its disgraceful but from a legal point of view not much you can do. Shame it isn't local. I'd be outside there every Saturday handing out leaflets to everyone that was walking in they would soon change mind

That is bang out of order but the problem you will face with trading standards is the fact that you have accepted the car.  Had it come to light months down the line that the car had a new engine that they knew about and failed to mention then again you may have  case .Had you have paid a deposit(or even amount in full and backed out due to mileage and they tried to keep your deposit/ full balance then you would have a case as its not as described.  At the end of the day you have turned up and the item you have paid for is not as described.  At the point you turn up and realise mileage is wrong you try to get the price down or walk away, once you give them the money you have accepted the car.  Im not saying its right but thats the facts.  An advert is an advert until money and signatures exchange.  If you went to sell your house and rather than put £180,000 on the advert you put £18,000 and someone turns up to buy it.  would you sell it, no you would apologise and say sorry wrong amount if you want it its £180k.  With a garage of that size though i would expect them to throw in a free service or something like that.

i would defo go for the mondeo. alot more comfort.  to be fair in 8 years they will probably have at least 1 if not 2 newer shap focus'. I wouldnt have thought shape will make that much difference, they will drop it now to shift them so if you get the saving now your ok.

the big saving has already been had before you made the purchase, where you would get caught out would be had you paid full price and then in September when the new one came out tried to sell it

Also to be fair people that are buying 8 year old mondeo/focus are not really going to be interested in shape. may be a couple of hundred difference if that
