The newest car I have owned so far. Like all my cars it took a while before
I found the right one. I wanted a saloon as you do not see as many as the estate and hatchback versions.
In the end I found this one for sale in Autotrader and it was based in Chigham. This was the first
time that I'd bought a car at night, so went equipped with a torch to have a good look. It was in
really good condition and had just 86k on the clock with a full dealer stamped history.
Just like the Granada it's got all the toys and is really comfortable. The heated front windows and
heated seats are very nice on a frosty morning as there's no more de-icer needed! As it's a Ghia X
these are some of the extra's you get..
I had all sorts of problems when I first
got it - as it had a bad tendancy to pull to the left. I thought it might just be the tracking, but after
having that done by Ford it made no difference. I read a few peoples comments about them being sensitive
to matching tyres. It had a miss match of 3 different makes/tread patterns when I bought it, and when they
needed to be changed I bought 4 new tyres all round - problem solved!
I was undecided if the boot looked a bit bare without a spoiler (Ford RSAP), but I've left
it as it was mainly because of a lack of time and money.
Another change i'd love to get round to is the suspesion. It really needs to be dropped as it looks like
its on stilts and wears the outside edges of the front tyres badly.
