Re: Focus Zetec offer

Yes it does sound good, and I have done a valuation of the Ford on What Car.
It came out as being worth around £6900.
I'm just concerned about the after sales service etc with Reg Vardy having
such a poor reputation. Should I wait & try to get one from a Ford dealer? I
did actually have one lined up at CD Brammell Ford, I had an appointment
yesterday to test drive again and finalise the deal. When I got there, they
had sold it!!
Are all dealers as bad as each other?

I thought about looking at other dealerships just in case they had one. I
know they are not keen on having other cars on their forecourts.
I think I will give it a couple of weeks. I am hoping there will be a surge
of used ones when the new Reg plate comes out next week.
