Ford price cuts

Sun, 15 Oct 2000
Faced with a continued private buyer boycott of its showrooms, Ford finally capitulated with list price cuts of up to 13%. Ken Gibson broke the news in 'The Sun' on Friday 29th September. Confirmed in 'The Daily Telegraph' on Monday 2nd October. All Fords except the current Mondeo and the Escort purchased from a UK Ford dealer from 1st September 2000 ('X' reg) will also be covered by a three year 60,000 mile warranty. However, the £1,505 cut in the list price of the Focus Zetec 3-door only brings it back to £12,995 on the road, just £5 less than it was before with Ford's £1,500 'cashback' offer which now no longer applies. The new Mondeo is list priced at from £14,595 for the 1.8iLX and £15,095 for the 2.0iLX (well worth the extra £500). See Mondeo in car by car breakdown for spec details. Ford is also offering extra savings of £800 on a Focus and £650 on a Puma for buying on the web. Website:
