autotrader

always take a mechanic when viewing, always try and get the price down

always do an hpi check before buying

dont buy any cat ds or cs

If the price is to good to be true then it is

An old shape Ford Focus in a good condition so i wont have to keep getting repairs...how much you reckon that would cost me??

it would usually say but if it doesnt the hpi check would take care of that

but if u wanna spend 5 you should look at getting an astra for 4 instead of a focus

£5000 is alot of money for you're first car, you should easily be able to find yourself a decent car for that price, what about a Seat Leon?

How much would you say a Ford Focus or Astra (that never brakes down/dont need repairs) would cost?

I just cant afford to keep paying hundreds for repairs and all of that

If you want a Focus, buy a Focus. If you want a Astra, buy an Astra. Fords are better for handling, Vauxhall for speed tbh.

Take a mechanic to check the cars. Make sure the fluids are all full. Look at the bushes and the wheel bearings.

F*ck it I'm gonna get a loan by the middle of the year and cop a car.

Its not safe, pretty much anyone can post sh*t up there, bait giveaways are unrealistic prices and no contact details

Alot of the time there are adds for NON-EXISTENT whips = ROBBERY

or the whips r ringers (stolen with fake documents) = still ROBBERY

gumtree's basically a quick method for hungry croydon yutes to make sum change. stay away from it loool
