I picked it up on Friday.
A 1.6 Zetec, 55 plate in dark blue, 50k, FSH, 1 year MOT and 6 months tax. Its the 100bhp.
So far so good, me and the wife really like the car. Inside its in superb nick with only a minor mark on the centre console to report.
We have a month parts and labour warranty and the only problem we have found is that the CD player wont accept a CD. It takes it so far but it doesnt load correctly. Eventually it says "CD Error". The garage are going to take it out and have a look, if its not repairable they are going to replace it.
I expected it to be a bit underpowered after what people have said about the 1.6 100bhp engine. I am pleasantly suprised though. In 2nd and 4th gear it pulls well and i had a 1.8 Astra Coupe before this too.
I need to give it a good polish/wax and, even though its in near perfect condition inside, a good clean inside because im a perfectionist
Ill post pics when i take some after ive given it my "personal" valet
Ive got a few questions if some of you would be so kind to answer.
Ive read of a 12V port in the back of the car and maybe the boot but i cant find either? Were only certain models fitted with these?
Also are mudflaps easy to fit? Ive seen official Ford ones on ebay but they are bloody expensive! Has anyone bought these?
