Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Ford Puma hatchback?
Top-spec versions of the Puma have larger alloy wheels that can be susceptible to kerb damage, so check the wheels carefully. Also, look for any dents, dings and scratches to the bodywork, because paint and body repairs can be expensive. Make sure the clutch engages smoothly and that the car goes into gear easily.
There have been three recall notices issued for the Puma so far.
How to check if the vehicle is recalled
