Hi there ...
I recently decided that a Focus C-Max would be a good buy for me after endless pondering of what car to get. My aim is to get one before I go on holiday (by car) to Scotland on March 27th.
I don't have a family (just a girlfriend), and thought the C-Max would be good because of the space. I play in a band so it will be handy for moving gear around in fairly regularly and I've read that it's a people carrier for people who don't want a people carrier! Seems perfect.
I currently have a T-reg Corsa (42k on clock and in good nick) to trade in. I can't afford new car so no scrapage, so I'm looking at either a 1.6 TDCi Zetec or Ghia, probably 04/05, hopefully around 50k or less if possible.
I must admit I've read a **** of a lot of horror stories, and not sure if I should change my mind!
Can anyone give any tips for finding one that won't go wrong? Ford dealerships are a lot more expensive than what I can find on Autotrader, but then I won't get the same warranty.
Any help muchly appreciated ...
