    Default I'm moving to this and I cant wait...

    after a lot of issues in the first year of ownership, it looks like the wife and i are moving to this:

    Mk2 Ford Focus 1.8tdci ghia.

    better mpg
    lower insurance
    lower tax band
    better reviews.

    and no its not a joke.

    Good luck - I guess you just had a bad VX, but at least you will have a smaller, lighter car to push. Serious - next door but one to me had one of them Ford Focus TDCI - and it just kept him in touch with the ford garage - and added to his mobile phone bill with all the problems. Shame - he as a Citroen now - which a really nice motor.
    Hope you get a good Ford Focus Tdci. Good luck.

    Good job - shame about the miserable engine (the 1.6 TDCi is a better engine), the wibbly wobbly suspension on the Ghia, and WTF were they thinking when they "designed" the steering wheel, the airbag cover looks like ****** all and the wheel itself is far too thin.

    Had a previous Focus for 2 years, didnt have any problems, the car handled REALLY well and was a pleasure to drive, on the twistes will show a clean pair of heels to some more premium vehicles. When living in the north of scotland the quickclear windscreen was an absoloute godsend. Dealers are bloomin terrible though

    The reversing light is in the most ridiculous position too, I have walked into a couple of them when they are just about to reverse out of a space if you approach the car from the opposite side to the reversing light you can't see it.

    Unlike the Vectra which has two great big purposeful proper reversing lights !
