    I am about to buy an 02 plate Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec. It has 40000miles, full ford service history, Air con and its 3 door. Its in mint condition and its £5999, is this over priced or is it ok?

    If you're paying £5999 then that sounds like the price on the screen. Car sales are rather slow this time of year so you could haggle and get a few hundred pounds off which you can stick towards insurance :D
