FORD ANNOUNCES RANGE OF SPRINGTIME OFFERS TO ENTICE CUSTOMERS

· Low APR Finance

· Fuel Voucher for Test Drive in Best in Class Fuel Efficient Mondeo

· Three Years Extended Warranty, Roadside Assistance & Free Servicing on Selected Models

CORK, April 5, 2012 – Ford has just announced a package of special offers that look set to keep Ford showrooms busy over the coming months. The package* comprises a special 4.9 percent low finance offer for models across the range; fuel vouchers of up to €1,300 on Mondeo; and a ‘no worries’ for three years package: extended warranty, roadside assistance and free servicing for three years on selected models including Ireland’s top selling car: the Ford Focus.

“This package is designed to show customers that there is still some very good value in the market”, said Eddie Murphy, Chairman and Managing Director of Ford Ireland. “With fuel prices becoming an even more weighty burden for motorists, our offer of a voucher for 400km worth of fuel for anyone who test drives a Mondeo is sure to strike a chord”.

“Equally, we have been hearing back from customers that access to good value finance is an ongoing problem and to rectify this, we have worked with our finance house, Ford Credit, to provide an attractive 4.9 percent low APR loan rate available for deals on all of our passenger models”.

The 4.9 percent low APR offer is available to customers on all completed purchases between now and the end of June.

The test drive incentive on Mondeo which will run from April 14 to May 16, means that anyone who takes a model for test drive will qualify for a Topaz fuel voucher that will provide 400km of free motoring (to the value of €28). And if a customer then goes on to purchase a Mondeo before the end of June, they can take the option of a Topaz fuel voucher to the value €1,300 – based on the Mondeo’s best in class fuel economy that should be enough fuel for 19,000 km of motoring (based on the 1.6 TDCi 115PS ECO model).

“Part of our motivation in organising the Mondeo test drive promotion is to highlight the best in class fuel performance of the car to a wider audience and we hope a high number of drivers will take up the offer”, concluded Murphy

The 3/3/3 Offer which also runs until the end of June, will provide three years of care free driving to anyone who buys a Fiesta, Focus, C-MAX / Grand C-MAX or Kuga. The 3/3/3 offer provides extended three year warranty, roadside assistance and free servicing for three years.
