How much should I expect to pay a dealer for a 2006 Ford Fiesta 1.4-litre with 112,000 miles?

I would not recommend buying a 15-year old car from a dealer. It will be worth from £500 to £800 and the dealer will charge you £1000 to £1600 to double their money. You'd be much better buying it from a private seller.
