  1. Get the full Ford service, I do and you get 1 year free AA cover bargain!
  2. Had my 1.6TDCi from new and no problems. If you drive less than 20K miles a year stick with petrol.
  3. 1K a month is 12K annually, petrol 1.4
  4. Take it to another Ford dealer
  5. Left mine on when I did my Mondeo.
  6. Dealer could deny all knowledge and say you or somebody else did the damage. Looks like some form of bodging has been done already.
  7. Sounds like a bunch of cowboys, the 3 month warranty is irrelevant, you are covered for 6 months for any faults that were present or developing from the date of sale. He should not be charging you for faults.
  8. Common problem and it looks like its been bodged before. Clean the old muck off and stick it down with Tiger Seal.
  9. Could be a DPF regeneration, take it for a good thrash on the motorway and check the oil level before you do.
  10. Depends where you take it, ring round for some quotes.
  11. If your a cash buyer the best time to buy is November/December or through a car broker. Anything else is what the manufacturer/dealer has to offer.
  12. Could be damp around the coil pack/plugs spray some WD40 on them and see if that cures it.
  13. Check the rubber pipe from the turbo to the waste-gate, it can split, if you take the air inlet pipe off can you see the turbo spinning?
  14. Given the low mileage it doesn't get driven far so the white smoke in the exhaust is condensation, take it for a good thrash up the motorway that will clear it and empty the exhaust of water. You will see the water move in the coolant tank, so long as you don't have to top it up every week the car sounds fine. Not sure what the juddering is, is the car petrol or diesel?
  15. Correct.
