    Car-good deal?

    Got offered a car today by a friend, had a quick look at it today and it looks nearly as good as new.
    Its a Ford Fiesta Studio, 1.25 litre, 3door, 57 reg, only done 7600 miles.
    He's offered it to me for £3500 which is quite alot of money for me atm being unemployed, but seems like a good deal, what do u reckon?

    Seems very cheap, why is he selling at such at low price?

    look at Autotrader and ebay completed listings for comparisons.

    Good price for a 57 plate i traded in a 57 plate style for £4800 a few months back but maybe cos it only had 800 miles on the clock

    cheers guys.

    i checked around but there wasn't many studio's or cars of this age with so few miles so found it a little hard to compare.

    p.s. anyone know a cheap short term insurance company...i havent taken it for a test drive yet.

    lol didn't mean to create a multi it said put in your e-mail address to post...it didn't say it was creating a multi account lol sorry

    It's a good deal if you have a job but not so if unemployed. Don't forget insurance, road tax, fuel...comes to more than £3.5k!

    Btw OP never admit you are unemployed on here you'd be better of saying you were a gay, lesbian, indian immigrant.


    Part-exchange Price:
    Excellent condition:
    £3480
    Average condition:
    £3220
    Below average condition:
    £2800

    They are part exchange prices, what he would get if he took it to a garage, so it is a good deal.

    hate struggling to post on my own deal lol.

    Cheers guys gives me some confidence to hear other people saying its a good deal.

    Borat ive got to ask why did u sell the car? anything wrong with it?

    Yes im unemployed, and i hate it-im not one of those who sits on benifits, ive recently lost my job and havent even signed on yet. I dont mind saying im unemployed yeh its annoying but hopefully soon i wont be

    No it was a nice car bought new from fords for my sister to pass her test but truth is she can't drive so i traded it in. Dealer was also shocked it had only 800 miles in 3 years.
