Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Ford Focus reliable?

Ford is renowned for developing vehicles that not only offer the highest quality in terms of performance and value, but also in reliability too. In fact, according to the 2018 Car Buyer Driver Power rankings, the Focus was ranked 33rd most reliable on the market today. Not only that, but being a Ford means the cost of replacement parts and components is affordable, making any repairs great value for money.

Should I buy a new or used car?

Choosing between a new or used car comes down to a number of issues. If you’d like the opportunity to specify precisely what you vehicle features, demand the very latest in technology and want the best in engine performance, purchasing new is the way to go. However, if you don’t mind a slightly older model with a few miles on the clock, a more reasonable purchase price and less depreciation, choosing used is ideal. Regardless of your choice, ensure you purchase from a reputable dealer like M53 Ford that will help ensure you get the best value possible.
