  1. Well the dealer has now agreed to fix the bumper (good!) and do a valet and use a 'smoke bomb' to get rid of the smoke odour. We'll see.
  2. Smoke, something was covering it up! Because recently in the hot weather it's been stinking. Sorry, but it's not just life, I've had several cars previously of around or greater than 4 years old, and bumper peeling was NOT an issue on any of them. My other car is a 2006 Honda Civic, and not a hint of bumper peeling, and it's used more than the Focus. It shouldn't do it!
  3. Hi, I purchased a used Focus (58 plate) from a main dealer at the end of October 2011, and recently it's started smelling of smoke, neither me or my partner smoke or anyone we know smokes, and we don't let anyone in the car who smokes, so it must have been the previous owner, and the dealership tried to cover it up with some odour eliminator or something. If I'd smelt it when I went to buy it, I would have instantly rejected the car! The bumper's paint has started peeling, and I just found out it's had a respray on the bonnet and the front bumper. Is this good grounds for rejecting the car? You just can't get rid of smoke odour from vehicles, and now it's getting sunny it's terrible. Thanks Gavin
