Why I am buying Vicki casserly
'I thought it made sense to hold off for the new plate in July'
Vicki Casserly from Lucan, Co Dublin is buying her 132-D Ford Grand C-MAX from Tallaght Ford.
"I only decided to buy in April and I thought it made sense to hold off for the new plate in July. There wasn't any particular promotion on the Grand C-Max like there is on a lot of the more popular Ford models, but I feel I got a great trade-in on my current car (from Paul in Tallaght Ford).
"Also, it is nice to have the latest plate. We'll have to wait and see whether the 132 plate means a better trade-in than a 131, but in holding off I guess I am hoping that's the case.
"Unlike some people, I'm not really superstitious so it wasn't that I was put off by the 13-reg plate as such."
