58.9 MPG from new engine in Focus

Who would have thought, we would be looking at a New Focus with a 1 litre engine, with journelists raving about the great performance. And on top of that, the road fundlicence is free for the first year and only £20/30 therafter. Long gone are the days when your cc's tells you how powerfull your car is, this new engine is available in 2 power outputs 99ps and 123ps, these are the facts 99ps(bhp in old money) 58.9 MPG and only 109g/km Co2 123ps 56.4 MPG and still only 114g/km Co2

And did i forget to tell you this is a PETROL engine, yes the cheaper of the 2 expensive fuels at the pump.

"Get ready for a major surprise. The new, three cylinder, 1.0litre turbocharged versionof Ford's good but mainstream Focus looks like becoming the best version of the car money car buy" Autocar February 2012

Regards Ian "Without exaggeration the service and attitude provided by Buckingham ford is probably unique in the day and age of 'don't care' and 'its too much trouble' attitudes which too often prevail. No matter whether one is planning to buy and expensive new car or just seeking free and advice or service nothing is too much trouble for them. This is so refreshing and it even restore ones faith in human nature and the existance of old fashioned service and attention. If only more businesses were like this! " David Trimby February 2012

I would like to take this opportunity to say how very pleased with the car i am, which is one of many Ford cars i have owned over the years. This is the first time that i have dealt with Buckingham Ford, and would like to say i am very impressed. On taking delivery of the car it was found that the presentation of it was excellent. I did have a problem with a door lock, but this was rectified quickly and effectively. All the staff from sales and workshop were excellent. I will certainly recommend your company and will return to you in the future. S Daniels January 2012
