Rubbish! The Ford Focus Style loses 43% of its value in the first year
alone, compare that to say a VW Golf 1.9 TDI losing only 32% (figures for
2007). At that time both cars cost �15,045 but the Focus would we worth

Hang on a sec. One loses 4814 and the other loses 6469. These are both
astronomical figures.
