the car is fantastic fun and is everything i expected it to be and more. The car is superb in every respect, however, on long journeys my injured knee becomes agony in view of the seating position . this is my personal car and is registered in my name and at my home address. I bought my car after deciding i needed something smaller. I searched high and low to find the best car i could and i am happy that it is one of the very best, if not the best out there, and far better than many younger newer cars.
the focus was ford's replacement for the escort and remains their most popular series of car. To date. It was in production between 1989 and present in 1, 2, 2.5 and 3 series. My car is a ghia version wit. Many features that make the driving experience more comfortable andnot available on standard models. Nowadays they very rare with such low mileage as most having covered between 150 -200k miles with a stack of previous owners. Some have incomplete or scant service history and many have now gone to the breakers yard. This is a genuine uk registered car and is mechanically excellent. It has both an mot until 31st august 2019) as well as a full service history and full record of every piece of work carried out on the car over the last 19 years.
my car is completely factory standard . it does not have horrible aftermarket bling wheels. It does not have a massive bass speaker in the boot. It does not have special flip paint or tacky wrapping. If that is what you are looking for then this car is not for you.
the car's history
the car was originally registered to arriva of nottingham as a demonstration car. Mr tony lee then bought the car at a couple of months old and owned the car untill his passing in october last year. In all that time it was kept in his garage and serviced and cleaned and polished when required. In accordance with probate regulations the car was then registered to his daughter claire groves who never drove the car but it remained in her fathers garage until i purchased it. Mr lee looked after the car fastidiously. It has covered a genuine 19,000 miles supported by the service book stamps and , the car is in superb condition throughout mechanically, internally, and externally. My car drives like a brand new car.

the car looks absolutely sensational in pepper red clearcoat metallic paint. It looks absolutely superb. The colour is stunning and suit’s the car perfectly. The condition of the car is absolutely fantastic. The the bodywork though, is better than most 1 year old cars let alone one of 19 years. It is undoubtedly one of the very best anywhere. Alloy wheels are ford factory fit options, and are in good condition with no corrosion but there is some small flaking.
mechanically the car is excellent, as one would expect of any car with genuine mileage of just 19000 miles. Very low for an 3 year old car but my car has coverd that in 19 years !!!. the engine is smooth, quiet, does not smoke and changes up and down without fuss or bother. Performance is brisk and economy averages 40 mpg. I recently achieved nearly 50mpg on a 150 mile trip. There are no untoward warning lights on the car when driving or stationary. There is a full service history from new with all bills carried out by arriva and mr lee's local garage who cared for the car throughout his ownership. The last at 18244 in august last year. So it has done less than 1000 miles since. Everything that has needed to be done has always been done.

the interior of the car is excellent and quite clearly has been cared for well maintained throughout his life. The oatmeal cloth interior is superb almost as new condition throughout, with no noticeable wear at all – it is like new. Carpets in the boot area are “like new” also. The car has obviously had relatively light use throughout its life and subsequently the inside of the car is immaculate. All trim is bright and polished with no cracking or scratching. All switchgear is fully operational including the air conditioning which is ice cold
as an added bonus both sets of original ford keys are included as well as all the original service and handbooks in the ford wallet that came with the car an unused get you home spare wheel & tyre with an unused complete toolkit and alloy wheel locking wheel nut socket.
my car is not just a nice car - it is absolutely beautiful throughout but also mechanically excellent due to it's extensive and regular servicing & low mileage.
it looks like a brand new car, drives like a brand new car & smells like a brand new car. To all intents and purposes it is a virtually brand new car
my car is priced accordingly. If you can find this car anywhere else cheaper with this provenance then i suggest you buy it.
