I am currently looking for a late 2006 or 2007 Mondeo Mk III ST (2.2 TDCi) for the wife as they have soooo much more room in them for our 2 very young kids than my 2003 B6 Avant. Looking to spend between £10K and £11K so looking for a low mileage minter. Anyways find one on Autotrader for £10.5K about £1K over top book according to Parkers guide for a 30K miler - this one had done nearer 40K miles - call the bloke - they say its really mint ! So I pay deposit over the phone. We get there after a 3 hour drive and guess what its NOT mint - I am soo hacked off.... Then the price - he reckoned that we agreed the price on the phone - errr NO - I am paying cash so expect a years warranty thrown in or the price dropped by £500....errr no, thats not what we agreed on the phone says the ****wit of a dealers lacky..and then tops it by telling me that he is not going to prepare the car so its like new ! To avoid any further long distance f**kups any advice from you guys out there Car dealers today are NOT my favorite people !
