I'd like to thank everyone for the great responses and suggestions. I went to test drive a Focus hatch and thought it was absolutely amazing!
I found some good deals at non-ford dealerships, but I am concerned that if I was to buy one would Ford dealers help me with servicing, updates, etc. Would it make a difference if I did not buy from them or will all Ford dealers help with that stuff?
Also, before purchasing, would Ford dealerships allow me to bring the car in so they could take a look at it and make sure nothing is wrong?
So you're looking at used cars then? Well as long as its under warranty I don't see why the Ford dealers would refuse to service it, or to service it in general since they are trained at how to service the car.
As long as the first dealer is willing to allow you to take the car someplace else for an inspection I don't see why the Ford dealer wouldn't inspect the car for a nominal fee.
