  1. Hi ross1985 I experienced the same as you on my new Fiesta, 1st to 2nd was terrible compared to my old 1998 Fiesta! I just persevered & it did improve the more miles I did!
  2. Esp With Traction Assist & Brake Assist

    Any built from March 2010 will have the ESP fitted as standard. Before that date, it was an option.
  3. Service Questions

    I was told (by my Ford dealer!) that you can take your Ford to any independant garage for servicing as long as they are VAT registered & use original Ford parts & it will not void your warranty. That's what I will be doing when mine is due its first service and at a fraction of the cost of the £195 the Ford dealer quotes!
  4. Esp

    ESP became standard on all Fiestas built from March 2010, models MY 2010.5 onwards. Before that it was an optional extra.
  5. 2009 Fiesta Warning Lights With Snow/cold

    Only had the amber or red snowflake showing it's bloomin cold!
  6. Fiesta Mk7 1.25 Zetec

    The gear changing on my Mk 7 1.25 Zetec was as you describe especially 1st to 2nd, although it did improve but it still feels 'clunky' at times. I thought it was just me, but if I'm honest I found the gear changes on my old Mk 4 1998 Fiesta Zetec much smoother than I do on the Mk 7!
  7. **fiesta Mk7 With City Pack Option

    Sounds normal to me as mine do momentarily sense cars at the side when reversing...
  8. Mk 7 Locking Question

    Have you tried turning the top of the key towards the rear of the vehicle twice within 3 seconds?
  9. Fiesta Mk7 Update

    Hi BHeart With regards to the voice control you say you are pressing the button on the left stalk. To me it sounds as if you are pressing the voice activation button which is on the left stalk especially as the "voice recognition" then appears on the display. To answer a call use the small 'M' button which is in the middle of the mini audio controls on the left side of the actual steering wheel. Also when you have an incoming call if you look at the bottom of the display, there are options along the bottom, one of which is 'answer', press the corresponding button of the 4 which appear in 2's either side of the door lock button & hazard warning light on the dashboard.
  10. How Many Miles Has Your Fiesta Done ?

    2,400 miles since end May 2010
  11. Disappointed With My Ford Ka 2010

    Have you raised the point about the damage with the dealer? With regards to the mileage, my Fiesta had 6 miles on it upon collection & new cars I've had in the past have only been about 10 miles maximum. Think I would have queried the 80 mileage if it was me!
  12. New Fiesta Instruments

    I have it on my Zetec built April 2010!
  13. Service Book

    My service book was in the folder with the manual when I picked up my car. Ring your dealer & ask them for one!
  14. Spare Wheel Option

    Hi Steamrunner I ordered a car that was being held at the Ford Holding Compound & I specified a spare wheel at the time of order. However, the Fiesta arrived at the dealer without the spare wheel. It was actually the dealer who put a spare wheel in for me when I picked the car up. This was supplied to me free of charge. I would negotiate with your dealer as I am sure they are quite capable of doing this for you at no extra cost!
  15. Hi babyboomer I had the same happen to me only a few days ago.... accidentally moved the steering wheel on getting out which seemed to lock it, but then when tried to start it later the key went it, but wouldn't budge! Mine was sorted by getting out, locking the car, leaving it a couple of mins then unlocking again & hey presto all was okay! Put me in a bit of a panic at the time though! Note to self.... try not to touch the steering wheel when getting out of car!!! :D
  16. New Sony Stereo - Clarification

    See the previous topic here for pics... http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=10353
  17. Fiesta Mk7 Purchase

    I have a 3 door with Bluetooth, USB & voice activation, & there are 2 speakers in each front door & then another speaker each side at the back which is 6. Must admit I only discovered the back 2 after 10 weeks of owning the car! :D
  18. Fiesta Mk7 Purchase

    Hi Dave I have had my 1.25 Zetec for approx 3 months & so far it's been a fab little car! My dealer did a courtesy check at 1,200 miles just to check all was working as it should, no leaks, etc & they said the car was "A1". I have no regrets & wouldn't swap it for anything & the new Fiesta turns heads as you will find! As someone else said, you only hear when there are problems, all the others have nothing to complain about & are therefore out enjoying their Fiestas! What colour did you go for?
  19. Had A Big Shock On My Day Trip To Essex Yesterday

    I live in Essex (North) & I have a Mk 7 Zetec & yes it's in Vision Blue!
  20. How Can Active My Gear Indicator Led 2009 Mk7

    I have the shift indicator in my Zetec 1.25, model 2010.5MY, manufactured April '10.
  21. The New Car

    Looks fab, I love the Vision blue it is a very striking colour! In my opinion the alloys you have look much better than the standard ones supplied on the Titanium! Aren't they the ones supplied as standard on the Zetec?
  22. Ford Audio System Locked On Incoming Call

    Maybe your phone is jamming it, so have you tried deleting the Ford Audio from the paired devices on your phone? Then turn your phone off & on again. I don't know if it would help, but that's what I would try, & if it worked just re-bond the phone to the car.
  23. Ice Warning Light?

    I have a Zetec 1.25 & it definitely has the ESP. It became standard for all Fiesta models built from March(2010.5MY). Prior to that it was only an optional extra.
  24. Ice Warning Light?

    On the Mk 7 Fiesta I believe the orange skidding car light illuminates when the ESP (electronic stability programme) is active. There is a light warning of low temperatures which illuminates as an orange snowflake. Maybe someone could correct me if I am wrong?
