It is annoying they dropped the price, but you can't think about values when buying a new mass-market car.

Focus values drop really quickly in the first couple of years and then level out, so just keep the car for a bit and enjoy it. Even a tatty early car (T plater) with six figure mileage will set you back £3k with decent, lower mileage cars starting at £4k. Daft thing is, they're only worth £4k at 4 years old, but depreciation seems to halt thereafter.

My advice would be to keep it for about 6 years, enjoy it, and stop worrying about what it's worth.

Having just bought a very late Edge TDCi I'll add that I am delighted with it. After years of driving larger Company-owned fleet cars for business, the "small car" for my retirement feels and drives like a much larger model. A "small-car with the big-car feel" if you like! It is much better built than any previous Ford I've driven, with all the panels fitting tightly and an excellent paint job. Well-done Ford.

I to have an Edge and its probably one of the best cars I have had overall, the quality is excellent. I paid £8,600 new for it in March 2005 and for the money its some hell of a car. The 1.8TDCi Diesel engine goes like stink when you want it to, and its so quite, you would never know it's a diesel when motoring.

I think the ford focus edge is a great car and is a great car to have. Not sure about the dealer, as they do not want to know when I have a problem.

I also have the focus edge mine is the 1.8 petrol and it goes like stink, mine is the three door and looks good. I picked mine up for £4500 with 30 000 miles on the clock, seemed like a good deal. overall good car by any standard I'd say.
