Found this super cheap deal for a well respected family car (Ford Focus Titanium 2.0 TDCI).

There is a new new revised model of the Focus on the way so this model is being run out.

If I was ready to change my vehicle I'd be all over this deal like a cheap suit.

The Initial payment: £921.36incl VAT

The deal is over a 24 month period based upon 10,000 miles per year.

Only Frozen White available (non metallic).

This equates to £191.91 per month overall or £44.28 per week

So that means you get 2 years car use for just under £4500 up to 10000 miles/yr. What about servicing & tyres - who is responsible for that?

so its £153x 24 + £921 ?

It's a brand new car, how much servicing and tyres are you expecting?

Hot deal.

Sounds good for a diesel car. Hot hot !!!

Yup, Tyres and servicing are your own responsibility, however, you would need to be driving hard to need new tyres in 2 years 20,000 miles.

At 10,000 miles a year, I would expect to have change the front tyres within 2 years maybe. Back tyres should be fine and just annual service (no MOT).

Agree that it is a hot deal.

Do these cars have everlasting oil and puncture proof tyres then?

Would it even need servicing? My Fiat goes 20k or two years between services.

If this was an automatic then it would tick all my buttons.

Get away with topping the levels instead of servicing, if you can't get 2 years/20k out of new tyres you are doing something wrong.

Oil will need changing once within 2 years I would imagine.

Punctures can happen to any car. That shouldn't put you off of this car over any other really.

Great Deal.

However could someone explain as to why it costs more (per month) for a longer term deal.
Surely it should be cheaper per month as the car would technically getting older.

Why take out a 4yr contract when after 2 years you could just take out another brand new car for another 2 years ?

Someone care to explain ?

Spot on, my Mazda has just completed 21.000 miles and the tyres front and rear are still good. With a torquey diesel like this one it might be harder on the front tyres.

Oil change and service required at 12.5k

so its £153x 24 + £921 ?



Initail payment of £921 + 23months X £153, all together £4440 for 2 years. Good for those who does low mileage and have no money to buy proper car...

Unless you can get a massive discount, this is much much cheaper than buying new.

Depreciation over 2 years for this model against list is over £9K

http://www.whatcar.com/car-depreciation-calculator/results?makeId=1&modelVersionId=633&editionId=36772

So, drive this for 2 years / 20K miles, hand it back and you've save big time.

Only upto 10k miles per year in a oil burner ??

Guess the figures may work out with the cheaper monthly lease payment for the actual fuel savings.

You would need to get it serviced annually (but not necessarily by Ford) in order to keep the warranty valid.

Depends on the tyres you use, the driving style and the kind of roads that you normally use. I expect 20-25K out of mine. But a keen driver who likes to press on using P-Zero Corsas in a roundabout heavy town won't get much past 8K.

What happens after 2 years, can you buy the car?

Original Poster

You could actually go to your local ford dealership and pay for 2 services up front and that would protect you against the rising cost of parts and inflation in any labour rates.

Original Poster

After 2 years you just hand the car back in reasonable condition.

You would only need 1 service during the contract. On a brand new car that would be minimal.
Currently on my 3rd contract hire car. I wouldn't ever buy again.

So what do ford do with a 2 year old car?

Yeah 2 years with 20,000 miles should see the supplied tyres last fine on this model unless continual foot hard down or an unfortunate puncture

Smart cookie, I lease my cars too. I was 8 years in the motor trade so i know my stuff. To out right buy a new or even used car (not all cases) would be madness. This is a really cost effective way of doing things.

Same as other manufacturers... Offer to negotiate extending the lease with you / tempt you with a buy price / put on a forecourt and sell it

Towards the end of the contract they write to you to ask if you want to buy it, but its quite expensive. Otherwise it goes straight to auction when they collect from you.

You won't get anywhere near 20k out of tyres in a diesel particularly if they're wide and low profile.

12k is the norm unless you don't turn or accelerate. My mate does 99% motorway and can get 20k but you'd be doing more than 10k a year then to be doing that much motorway!

They usually bung them straight through the auction. This car wouldn't go back to Ford, it would be the finance companies responsibility to dispose of it.

The tyres on the 2.0 titanium focus will not be wide and low profile, i'd be worried if only 12k miles from them lol unless driving like a nutter. I get more than 12k miles on my rear 30mm 275's on my motor

Wow. What a bargain!

£921.36 initial payment and 24 (or is it just 23?) monthly payments of £153.56 I calculate as just £4606.80

I've ordered a couple at that stunning price.

Voted HOT, HOT, HOT!

Because after 2 years the car still has a decent value so the leasing company can get a good price back on it on top of the finance you have paid out on it. Hence why it's an attractive 2 year lease only

Blimey, i only do 3k / year as i cycle just about everywhere. My 10-plate Mondeo has prob depreciated by £4k in the 2-years i have owned it, at least. I have often joked that it would probably be cheaper to drive around in a taxi, than suffer the costs of ownership. And to top it off, my car is now of an age where problems may start to creep-in, regardless of the super-low mileage.
I'd never considered a contract car before, but i certainly will next time around. Good deal, heat added.

This is a very good deal, you'll struggle to find better for the money.

I don't see why the topic of tyres is such a big deal in this thread. If you are so worried just swop them front to back to extend the mileage on the front tyres. But that said if you can't afford tyres you probably shouldn't be driving!
