Local Used Ford Sales Centre Braintree & Chelmsford

July 24, 2017

At Perkins we are constantly holding 150+ Used and Nearly New vehicles in stock so you have a massive choice of model, colour, variant and specification available for you to buy. Our experieinced sales team will listen to your requirements and help you decide the right vehicle for you in your price bracket. We are FCA approved so we have  the answers to your finance queries and we can also help if you are one of the many customers in the market place that are currently running a PCP deal and perhaps want to change the direction of financing your next vehicle. You are not the only one who is finding the numbers don't add up like you were told they would when you last bought your car elsewhere and we have  Hire Purchase offers at very low rate APR's to perhaps balance you out from your previous purchase into your next new/used car.

With a choice of Ford vehicles from the whole range of cars available to you, we can explain the technology of this brilliant range of vehicles are equipped with and we take the time to ensure you understand what you are looking at and there is no rush or hassle to buy at Perkins Nearly New Ford Centre.

If you have a diesel engined car, it's no problem. Yes there has been much  talk in the media and not so much by the manufacturers that diesel engined cars are bad and dirty and undesirable but that is not neccesarily true in the current used car market and these comments in the media are not really relevant to used cars or part exchange valuations at this current time (24.07.2017) as the process will very likely to be only  applicable to NEW vehicles and that time is still a way off. There are some vehicles ( as always) that are less desirable in the market that perhaps being diesel may affect the value but those hardest hit are currently the VW brand of which the reasons are obvious but most other marques have not been affected as yet, so shop with confidence if you have a petrol or diesel vehicle to part exchange.

We are definately seeing a trend towards petrol engine cars whether they are small or large but for MPV's and 4x4's the diesel variants are still popular and values remain strong - The fuel efficiency of these larger people carriers pretty much balances out the emissions CO2 ratings for use and ownership life so don't be put off because of media opinions. We are all individual and we all have our own usage and reasons for purchase so we all have different circumstances for change and we are here to help you through that process.

Stock changes every day and if you are looking for a particula Ford/ Subaru or MG that you cannot see in our stock then CALL US on 01376 550899 and ask for the sales team and tell them what you are after and we iwll see if we can find it for you.

Alternativey, you can e mail us at and we will contact you back immediatley.

Used Subaru Outback for sale Braintree/Chelmsford

July 19, 2017

used subaru outback for sale essexpre reg subaru outback It is not a mainstream motor car that is for sure but when it comes to an extremely spacious, unique and capable esate car to cover all terrains, on road and off road, a new or used Subaru Outback should be a massive contender on your list of cars. The Subaru All Wheel Drive Symmetrical drive system is without doubt one of best in the world and Subaru's BOXER flat 4 engine is technically unrivalled in balance , smoothness and low noise vibration that  creates  a low centre of gravity to enable one of the best handling estate cars on the market . However these factors are just the tip of the Iceberg.

Get behind the wheel of this spacious vehicle and the technical design and simplicty are a marvel of modern design. Thoughtful positioning of all the controls required to drive this car makes the driver feel at home. The touch and feel is quality as well as robust and the perfection in engineering becomes apparent immediately.

The Outback is fitted with Subaru’s tough four-wheel-drive system, which means it can show some bigger and pricier 4x4s a clean pair of heels off-road. It also has a 200mm ride height and panels that protect the underside of the car to help it over rough terrain. Engine options comprise a 173bhp 2.5-litre petrol and a 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel, while there’s a SE Premium as the main model available there are still  a few SE models in the market place that are without the PREMIUM spec of Leather/Memory/heated seats/ power Sunroof/ power Tailgate but still a very nice specification vehicle.

It’ll come as no surprise that the 2.0-litre diesel is the more efficient of the two engines,  of the two to drive they both have  a lot of character and mid-range pulling power. Both are great for towing and off-road driving. Though it takes a bite out of fuel economy and emissions, the Lineartronic automatic gearbox is worth considering if you plan to use the Outback off-road, as it has a special mode that sets the car up for slippery surfaces and maximises grip which is quite breathtaking to behold in action.

As an A and B road car, the Outback has a high seating position for a safer view of the road and the suspension is compliant and surefooted in its execution. The paddleshift controls behind the steering wheel allow instant upshifts for overtaking if more power is required and the gear change is almost imperceptible in AUTO mode, it really makes a nice change to be in complete control. On a motoway cruise the Outback also excels.  A steady 70-75 is barely 2000rpm which makes cruising a comfortable environment for driver and passengers alike and our demonstrator 2.5 petrol is averaging 36 mpg with a decent mix of all roads and our diesel demo that has just been sold was averaging 44 mpg - REAL WORLD DRIVING for sure which ties is very nicely with the manufacturers figures too.

EYESIGHT is the standard safety feature on all Outback Lineartronic models and soon to be standard across the whole range of Subaru cars. It is a a safety sytem related to anit-collision control paired with adaptive cruise control. Above the rear view mirror on the car, there are 2 "eyes" that watch the road in front to help you negotiate your way over the British roads with safety and confidence in any unforseen circumstances that may occour. Ask a member of our sales team for a demonstration of how great this system is.

You need an estate car for family life and want to be a little bit different ? You require strong residual values and low cost running ? You need off road capability and one of the safest cars in the world ? Come and drive a Subaru Outback and tell us what you think.

The Subaru Outback  finished 20th out of the 75 cars ranked in the Car Buyer  2017 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey of cars currently on sale in the UK.

Used Ford Edge 210ps for Sale Braintree Chelmsford

July 17, 2017

used ford edge Lux 210 ps for saleNew arrival into stock at Perkins Nearly New Ford Centre this week is the rather delicious Ford Edge Titanium LUX 210 ps TDCi Powershift with just 3000 miles at a price busting  £30995 + Road Tax.

The Ford Edge is a family-sized SUV with an impressively practical interior lurking within its sizable dimensions. It’s comfortable, easy to drive and comes with a good collection of safety aids. Ford is hoping to make a step upmarket with this car.

 Moving up to Titanium spec also brings the choice of a twin-turbo 2.0-litre diesel with 208bhp and 450Nm of torque. The sole transmission choice with that engine is the six-speed automatic gearbox, however. Sport models also get the same engine choice as the latter, but with chassis and styling tweaks to help it live up to its name. 

That starting price for a New vehicle is almost as much as that of a top-spec Mondeo Vignale, but at least you get plenty of kit. 19-inch alloys are standard on Zetec models, as is Ford’s SYNC touchscreen with a DAB radio, a rear-view camera, dual-zone climate control, keyless start and Active City Braking.

Although the top-spec Edge Vignale is priced to compete with cars like the top range  BMW X3 , it’s actually considerably larger in both size and weight - and feels as composed and as  upmarket as those rivals. The cheaper Edge models make the most sense when new to make a direct comparison which is why we concentrate on Nearly New models to get you the best value deals in the market place today.

Ford makes it clear that the Edge is targeted at premium buyers, and the driving experience reflects that. It goes about its business in a relaxed and refined manner.

The Edge is one of the largest mainstream SUVs on the market, and you really feel that on tight country lanes or in town. With a width of nearly 2.2-metres it’s bigger and wider than a Ford Kuga but feels more like a RR Sport sized car without the running costs.

Zetec and Titanium models get a more comfort-biased suspension setup than Sport models, which receive firmer springs, bigger wheels and an adaptive steering system. The ride on the former is impressively smooth and soft around town, absorbing potholes and ruts with ease. The specification of this particular model is superb with Full glass Panorama Roof that opens and SONY Premium Sound and SYNC 2 Navigation / LED Headlights which are just amazing in the dark, Active park assist and Hands free tailgate to finish off this great specification motor car.

Thinking about a change ? Come and have a test drive and see how this car compares to other cars you might be considering. It really is a rather splendid addition to the range of vehicle available at Perkins Nearly New Ford Centre.We are open 7 days and to find us put CM77 6SA into your navigation or CALL us on 01376 550899 to arrange a test drive.
