FORD FAIR – SILVERSTONE – 6TH AUGUST 2017
Join us on the Ford Owners Club stand at Ford Fair, Silverstone on Sunday 6th August 2017.
Hi All, First post on here, so hoping I'll get some replies. My other half wants a Streetka and we've found quite a few which fir the bill - 04/54 plate Luxury editions in Black or Grey. Just wondering if there's anything in particular to look out for 0 unique to these models. I've got a few specific questions which I'm hoping can be answered: What are the service intervals - and when are the major services i.e. timing belt? What are the standard recommended brand of tyre? Are these run-flats? Do these suffer with things like lambda sensors & pre-cat's failing, dodgy MAF sensors, head gasket nightmares etc? Steering racks - are they generally ok or do they go? How much are the hard tops to buy? I'm guessing as they're Ford, parts are generally cheap as chips - is the Duratec engine just taken from a Focus? Finally, might be hard to resist a few minor mods such as some uprated springs and dampers, plus a stainless exhaust and filter - any recommendations? I've hunted for an exhaust online but can't seem to find anyone who does one for the StreetKa - is it the same as the normal Ka? I don't want to use crappy PowerFlow as they fall to bits. Thanks in advance! Olli
