I hada Ford Fiesta up until 3-4 months ago. I paid it off fully but then took on a loan (shame on me!) to get a more reliable Ford Focus. It's going to take me a while to pay it off, and so I've thought for a while of just selling it and downgrading to something much cheaper, or nothing at all! Problem is the girlfriend lives 30 miles away and it's not really on to let her drive all the time....! So I'd probably have to downgrade. When do you think the best time to sell would be (I don't think people will be buying much for too much longer!), and what would you reccomend as a replacement?

Cheers!

What is the year and model Focus - engine, style, year, etc.

Did you buy it new or secondhand?

How many miles on it?

What colour - please do not say black

How much did you pay for it? What is the loan penalty for paying the loan off early? Can you sell the car whilst still paying the loan?

What do you carry in the car?

Are you a tall chap or a short chap?

2007 Ford Focus (can't remember the exact model sorry), light blue, 1.4L. I'm the second owner, it cost £8.1k, I pay just £4k of that. I don't carry much in the car, though it has a roofrack which I need to take off at some point, as I've never used it! I'm quite tall, 6ft.

My initial plan was to save and pay it off by November, see what happens then.

You need to go to a site like whatcar.com or honestjohn.co.uk and look up the MPG of your focus and compare it to whatever other car you are thinking of buying. I would have thought that a 1.4 focus was pretty economical though?

Out of interest, don't you find the driver's seat of the focus cramped? I am 6 foot 2 inches tall and I find the focus too small for me to get comfortable in.
