  1. Hi guys, quick query I hope - on my new (to me) Ford Fiesta, I noticed today a yellow light appeared briefly while driving, just below the green centre panel between speed and tachometer. It's the same light that glows yellow when you open a door, although the internal light didn't come on. Can't find anything about this in the manual, in fact the manual has a different dash detailed which has that as a button to reset the tripometer (I reset mine using a button on the indicator). Any help much appreciated, Thanks.
  2. Hi, My Focus was smashed into recently so am looking at alternatives since it is likely written off. Budget is a bit limited, and would like something with low emissions (to save on road tax and parking, anything below 120g/CO2 gets a very big discount). Was looking at the KAs but don't think I can really fit into one that well (am tall). The salesman recommended a diesel Fiesta, June 2008 1.4 TDCi Zetec Blue 5dr. It has a good price with a very good deal, however I am concerned about the DPF and if I do enough to miles to not get issues. I have a 15 min drive across dual carriageways split by many roundabouts each way to work daily, and usually do 2 half hour each way motorway trips a week (so 2 hours total). Am I setting myself up for issues, I can't even seem to find a definitive answer on whether it has a DPF although given its low emissions (119g) I suspect it does. Or am I worrying over nothing? Have never had a diesel before, whilst I wasn't able to test this yet (will do next weekend) I was given something similar to get a feel for it and it was good. Appreciate any advice, many thanks.
