I will try keep this short and in bullet points but any advice would be grateful.


I bought a ford focus 3 years ago from a ford garage for 12 -13k as a used car and only 1400 miles on it.

1 year later (after having a child) we decided to get a bigger car and went to a local dealership to trade in for another car at 10K.

the dealership said they could not give us the money we needed for the car because it was an "IMPORT" so it was valued at less money.

When we bought the car we did not know it was an import.

I decided to ring ford to query this who said it isn't an import and said i had to ring our finance company?!

I spoke with the finance company who argued it wasn't an import also and the log book didn't state it was an import so it had been valued correctly.

As you can tell it left me in a cathch 22, the new dealer had de valued the car and the finance would not.

To cut a long story short the car was an "IMPORT" from Guernsey, the finance company came to some agreement with the dealership and i got my new car.


My query where i need advice is:


Did i just get fobbed off and i should have argued abit more?

Did i over pay on my monthly payments for a year or so when i had the ford because it was an import?

I am now wanting to change for another car (another child) so want to clear this up before i do.


Thanks in advance for any advice.
