Ford is staging a major promotion at its dealerships from this Friday (February 12 ). The company tells us that it is the 10 best days to buy a Ford.
Ford says it has €5m credit available for buyers over those days, while they are also giving €1,000 towards the deposit on any new Ford approved for finance with FordCredit during the promotion period.
If customers qualify for the Government scrappage allowance, they will get up to €1,500 off.
Ford Ireland chairman and managing director Eddie Murphy believes the offer will give many motorists the confidence to enter the 2010 car market.
“There is still a perception out there that banks just aren’t willing to finance cars,” he says. “Through our bank, we’re putting our money where our mouth is, both in terms of making credit available, and also in sweetening the deal with a €1,000 deposit allowance.
“Many customers who believed a 2010-reg car was beyond them will be pleasantly surprised to see it actually is do-able.”
