    Default New Company Car!

    Hello there. A few weeks ago i decided it was time for a new car for work. So due to the amount of mile's i'm covering and the fact the price of fuel is rising so much I decided to go for something sensible and economical.

    So i've gone for a Ford Focus Zetec. It has a 2 litre petrol engine. With a 5 gear manual gear box. It's not the fastest car around and can do 128MPH (according to the specification, i doubt it myself) and 0-62 in 9.2 seconds. The best thing about it is the MPG which is a rather large 52MPG. Anyway your probably getting bored now so i'll stop going on.

    Ford for the win!
    w00t!

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    I was using my Audi a lot recently, but decided to use the Range Rover instead as it's much more economical and I don't care about the millage on it

    yep it's true. The rs4 uses a hell of a lot of fuel.

    12-15 mpg in the RS4
    25-30 mpg in the RR
    And there isn't a low enough number for the BMW's fuel consumption

    It does look nice but you should have gone for the ST. More fun to drive for the work commute

    I love the New kinetic Design from Ford, But theres something about the Older Focus that i liked more, I just liked the Straight lines, Suited the size of the car
