Ideal family car

A very rare Automatic Ford Focus here ladies and gentlemen, so, if you’re in the market for an affordable family car and you want a car that since launch has been an absolute gem, and which has proven to be more reliable, dependable, affordable and frankly better lasting than the so-called prestige German marques, then you’re looking at the right car.  The second-generation Ford Focus is one of the finest packaged mid-range cars that you can buy.  Of all the cars, we’ve bought and sold over the years, from Austin to Aston, Jalopy to Jaguar, it is this model of Focus which we rate as the best place to put your money if you want a proper family car which will serve you well, keep your attention (very sporty these cars) whilst giving you peace of mind, then read on. 

Now before you read on, digest this fact.  This car has been in the care of 1 lady owner since it was 10 months old, it has service history with 4 stamps in total and it has just been serviced by us, it is HPI clear, it has a long MOT with no advisories and leaves us with a 3-month UK wide warranty.  It is very well presented externally, internally and most importantly mechanically. We’ve just given the car a full pre-sales check over and addressed any areas required.  The car is good to go.  It is the rarely seen AUTO in LX specification, meaning it is generously and usefully equipped, the car has Air Con which we’ve just gassed and is therefore ice cold, it has electric front windows, CD player, multi air bags, PAS, ABS and so much more.  The car looks very smart and has an exceptionally sporty feel.  It has the most desirable engine for the Ford Focus, the 1.6 litre petrol.  The car is very nippy yet also good on jungle juice.  Being the AUTO, the car affords a relaxing driving experience for the daily commute or for traversing the city traffic the car is a very rewarding drive either around town, on the motorway or zipping around the B roads.  The car has been freshly MOT’d, been put through a 58-stage inspection, in addition the car is HPI clear, freshly valeted and provided with a 3-month warranty.  The car is priced very keenly and we are certain that the car will not be here long at all.  So, if you want it, get on the phone quickly. 

 

Overview

 

An exceptionally well-presented example of these enduringly popular hatchbacks.  The Focus is probably the best family car on the market since its inception in 1998, and this second generation is ions ahead of the wonderful original.  This June 2005 model is in great condition for the year.  It absolutely gleams in Metallic Silver, the 16” wheel trims are in good shape, the bodywork is good for the year.  Being the 5-door model, the car lends itself perfectly to family motoring.

As I say, externally it looks very smart indeed, the Silver hue lends itself perfectly to the Focus shape, and, makes the car look very fresh.  The external appearance is exceptional for the year, sure there’s the odd mark as you would expect, the main one is a ding on the nearside sill, clearly a parking one, but it doesn’t detract from the overall look of the car, and most people wouldn’t notice it, but we like to point these things out.  The car has been fully valeted and it looks very smart indeed.

This car is well specified, you have remote central locking, body coloured bumpers, rev counter, Air-Con which we’ve just gassed for you, electric front windows, driver, passenger, curtain and side airbags, sports steering wheel, CD player, folding rear seats with 60/40 split heated rear screen, PAS, ABS, PAS and more.

The car is in exceptionally clean condition inside and out.  The car gleams, the remote central locking opens the car to a very clean and well-presented interior in grey cloth which has been well cared for and there are no dubious smells in the car.  The boot is more than generous (I’ve used this shape Focus to cart most things, and they are superb) and frankly the car really does feel much newer than it is, testimony to the quality of the Ford brand. 

Driving superbly, we have been through the car thoroughly and the level of care this car has clearly had shines through, there are no moans, no groans and nothing untoward that we can detect in our rigorous tests.  The car has a good level of service history and this shows in the drive, it is a wonderful car to be in.  We have just serviced the car and as part of that we have addressed the advisories from last year’s MOT so that when it was MOT’d it passed with no advisories, and we’ve also filled the air-con to make sure it’s nice and cold in the heat of summer.  The car really has been looked after.  As we do with all retail cars, we’ve given the car a full 58-point PDI check over and anything found has been remedied.  There is an MOT with no advisories until August 2018.  The car leaves us with a 3-month nationwide warranty for your peace of mind. 

On test the car drives beautifully, the gearbox is smooth in operation, the steering straight and true, the responsiveness of the car is spot on.  A Focus is always a joy to drive, and this car can impress or simply potter.  It is a lovely car to be in, and we defy you to not agree. 

The car drives superbly.  I’ve been selling used cars for over 20 years and I’ve sold more cars than I care to count, including all the Ford’s and I can say that this one drives superbly.

Previously we had a large forecourt and well-appointed offices.  We stocked dozens of cars, from a Fiesta to a top line Jaguar.  However, back in 2010 we decided to go back to our routes and to trade cars for passion, not just to pay the bills.  Although we still have a lot of cars we operate a much more streamlined operation and are an internet based business, and as such viewings of cars are by appointment and occur at our home in Bracknell, Berkshire.  You will find our service akin to dealing with a quality forecourt, but without the pressure.   Thus, you’ll find our prices sharp and our cars sell very quickly indeed.
