Buying experience

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchised

Did you buy this car new?
New

What price did you pay?
£16,400

When did you buy the car?
December 2013

Did you get a good deal and why?
I got a great deal from Bristol Street Motors in Kings Norton, Birmingham. Being ex forces i get VAT paid deals that allow me the extra room for the added luxuries on my car at a great price. There was no PX vehicle so that gave me more bargaining power.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I have always had Fords. I love the innovation that the company offers. I also used the ex armed forces deals and ford are the best for that.

What was the dealer like?
The dealers couldnt do enough. From the very start i was treated well, they listened to what i wanted and kept me informed all the way to the delivery day. Cant praise them enough.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
I was concerned at first about the small engine but its surprised me no end. Its smooth, responsive and very quiet. The quality of the build is superior to anything before it and certainly gives the big boys a run for the money. The overall pleasure of this car is 100%.

What's it like to park?
Parking is easy with the sensors front and rear. The blind spots are minimal and the car is small enough to park in most car parks with their small spaces.

Living with it
