    My work mate bought a car on saturday and after a few days of using it decided she wasnt fussy about it so looked around and put a deposit down on another car from a main dealer with a part x on her 'new' car.

    She rang me yesterday saying she now has doubts about the car she put the deposit down on!!

    I told her the dealership is unlikely to give her the £200 deposit back if she pulls out of the purchase. She rang them and they confirmed this.

    She is in a dilemma now.

    Lose the £200 or, pay the £1,500 extra for the newer car ( including the part x of the car she bought last saturday).

    I told her if she not fussy about the newer car i would take the £200 loss rather than pay the £1,500 and be left with a car she not fussy with.

    Thing is, she is not 100% happy with the car she bought saturday either!!! Lol

    The newer car comes with a years warranty too which is better than the one month warranty she has with the car she bought on saturday.

    What would you do?

    Work mate? Ha.

    Which Ford did you buy on Saturday from this lot? Presume it's the C1 you've since put the deposit down on.

    I'd probably take the loss or discuss with the car company, sometimes just takes a chat with the management.

    Do you want to bang this girl?

    Because if not I'd block all communication channels.

    #1. Stop lying on the internet.

    #2. These are all pretty boring 'white goods' cars. All that matters is if it works. I can't imagine moving from a C1 to a Fiesta is going to ignite some kind of passion for it.

    What? You've gone from deciding on a 7 year old Fiesta to a 2019 Puma at 4x cost?

    Finance.

    I've seen more extreme, top of the list was someone going from a Vauxhall Corsa 1.3CDTi to a Maserati Quattroporte. :D

    How does one "order" a used car? Do they build it and give it to someone else for a bit first?
