  1. Auto Window Shutting !

  2. Auto Window Shutting !

  3. Auto Window Shutting !

    Hey...Spookily I HAVE got 4 electric windows. Will pop out and have a play ! Well didn't work in the first attempt..will try again soon. Whats is meant by "Global" in this instance.
  4. Auto Window Shutting !

    JUST got our first Focus (02 Ghia) and as a Vauxhall owner I'm quite impressed with the Focus overall. BUT a question. IF I swiched the ignition off after hitting the window switch, the windows stop closing. With a VX they keep closing until shut or can be closed after leaving the vehicle by either placing the key in the outside door lock OR holding the lock button down on the key fob. With the Focus, do we have to wait till the windows are all closed before removing the key.

  7. Mis-Sold Spec ?

  8. Mis-Sold Spec ?

    NOT the end of the world but recently purchased a 2002 1.6 GHIA for my wife. Ebay ad, from small dealer said it had ABS and ESP. Asked my mechanic to look her over and he reported that there were NO ABS sensors on her so I would have thought ESP was a load of tosh also. I'm a Vauxhall man so don't know enough about FORD....has the car been mis-sold to me. In fairness we won't care as she is a fantastic car in any event but it would be usefull to know. I
