Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Well, I'm not sure, I suppose people think I was playing it safe purchasing a diesel Focus.

Well, yes, I would purchase the car again due to the high levels of equipment.

What are you likely to buy next?
Probably the new C-Max or the soon to be launched B-Max. We will have to see...

September 2011

Motability vehicle. The deposit for the vehicle was reasonable.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
We previously had a C-Max which we liked. The heated windscreen and torquey diesel appealed to us aswell.

The dealership was good. The dealership is run by surveys alone, so the staff seem to be more interested in what you write on the survey, than anything else. The dealership is Evans Halshaw.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very nice overall. Smooth, relaxing, very quiet and good to drive. Very capable on bends with good steering-feel.

Quite easy with the parking sensors. The large C-pillars do obscure the rear view.

DAB radio, parking sensors (part of an offer), heated windscreen.
