  1. Ecoboost or 4 Pot?

    It's just meant to be a car for 2/3 years until got some more cash and need something bigger. I'm still trying to weigh up whether a 40-50k ecoboost is going to be expensive to maintain
  2. Is my fiesta MPG Good? Please Respond!

    Have a look on honestjohn.com for real mpg. Way back when I had my 1.25 I was getting 43mpg driving like an old dear
  3. 2017 Fiesta 1.0 Reverse Gear Problems? (MK 7.5)

    Never had it jump out but it's absolute nightmare at times to get into reverse. My old mk7 was the same though. It's definitely a common problem and the cold weather starts seem to make it worse. Pop it into neutral, then into third and try again. Doesn't work? Try neutral then first then reverse. It will eventually go in, usual after I've pulled my bicep trying to force it for a minute.
  4. Ecoboost or 4 Pot?

    Cheers, I do love the ecoboost, just wasn't sure if the 'premium' on a five year old commute-mobile would be worth it in the end, it would likely only be had for 25k miles. Any things to look out for on 5 year old or mid life engines for both as maintenance needs to be taken into account?
  5. Ecoboost or 4 Pot?

    Hi all, looking to trade in an existing car we have for another fiesta, but a basic and early facelift version. Is the difference in price between the 1.0 100ps and 1.25 worth it for a car that'll only be kept for 3 years max and used as 15 mile round trip taxi? Anything to watch out for on 40k mile versions of either of the above? I've got a 1.0 140ps and had a 1.25 but neither were near 40k miles and the 1.25 was too long ago to remember. Any help appreciated, thanks
  6. Help please, car doing a funny thing

    Yeah it would, I turned it off as it felt weird even on a small incline
  7. I got better mpg with shell than supermarket. Couldn't tell the difference between regular and vpower though so just use shells regular stuff now. You'd need an improvement of 7/8% in mpg to justify using vpower, I was getting no noticeable difference
  8. How fast is the ST really?

    I thought it was +1hp per sticker or do go faster stripes work differently?
  9. Fiesta Ecoboost 1L Engine Problem?

    You can buy one on eBay and it will fit in place, albeit very very snug. I had to remove the airbox cover to allow some wriggle room and even then it's mostly relying on the air hoses and oil plug to keep it down.
  10. Fiesta ZS Thefts

    If you were doing it at night you'd have less chance of being spotted I guess, take it anywhere and do an overnight strip of key components? When you see the price of individual parts they massively exceed the price of a complete car and most parts don't have I'd tags/numbers
  11. Fiesta Diesel

    Typically how often does a diesel have to do a dpf regeneration and what is required for it?
  12. Fiesta Diesel

    About 10k and 15/20 miles
  13. Fiesta Diesel

    Hi, after some advice on whether a fiesta diesel is any good. My wife has a Mazda 2 diesel which we need to get rid of and are looking at a fiesta as a replacement, something from 2015-2016. We get around 65mpg from it currently on a mix of distances. I've got an ecoboost fiesta so know the car well, just know nothing about the diesel engines. So my questions are: Are the diesels any good? What known issues are there? Is it worth getting a diesel or should we go for petrol?
  14. Nah brand new I was still reading a sensible figure, I agree give it a few more miles but it doesn't sound right unless the foot is almost through the firewall all the time
  15. Sounds like a dodgy reading, 28.8mpg sounds like it would be hard to achieve. Even new the worst I was averaging was 43mpg
