  1. Thanks for the advice, it is much appreciated - I now understand!! Cheers Sarah
  2. So, you could really just keep doing that agreement after agreement - so they keep you as a customer? Is it good to keep doing it? Thanks Sarah
  3. My Ford options agreement will come to an end in March next year (so still a good few months away) however I am thinking about my options now. I know I have 3 options, renew my Ford, buy it outright or give it back. For some reason I just can't grasp what I have to do to go for the renew option! What do I have to pay - the outstanding balance? Or is that used as a 'deposit' on the new car and then you refinance? Can someone explain in layman's terms please? Thanks Sarah
  4. I have recently started setting off shop alarms going in and out and have discovered (after much too-ing and fro-ing with keys, without keys, with phone, without phone) that it is my car key setting them off. Has/does anyone else have this problem and any ideas why or how to stop it?? Thanks
  5. Was anyone else offered the 6 month courtesy check when purchasing a new car? I have had my Fiesta for coming up to 6 months now and want to take advantage of the offer, however when I called them I was told I didn't need to book it in as they work on a a first come first served basis - which makes me think all they do is lift the bonnet and have a quick look before saying all is ok. What do you think? Thanks Sarah
  6. Panther Black for me, she glitters in the sun :)
  7. Sorry for the swear word....
  8. Update: So having eaten my dinner in seconds I went to the car armed with USB cables, sticks, my old phone and the manual. Firstly, I turned up the volume on new phone and that made a bit of difference but when I compared the old phone volume it just wasn't as good. Suddenly I remembered the !Removed! sound check button on the phone and it was on!!! Turned it off and boom, everything worked like a dream. So, I can only conclude it was user error and my lovely car hadn't let me down!!! Once again, thanks so much for your suggestions.... Sarah
  9. Great! I will try this too. Loving this website, far more help than anyone else I have spoken to today :)
  10. Oh I hope it is just that and nothing else. It's so frustrating when you're used to things just working! I will try that this evening and see if it works. Thanks Sarah
  11. I am going to try everything! I spoke to Apple this morning and they said that having the volume up or down on the phone shouldn't affect it but it's worth a go. Annoyingly it was as I was going for my train so I didn't have loads of time to play around with it - I assumed it would work fine so didn't try it last night. All I know is that yesterday morning all was working fine with the old phone and it wasn't today with my new one. Do you have any other devices paired at the same time, or should that not make any difference?
  12. Since I bought my car in March I have had no problems at all with syncing my music via bluetooth, from my iPhone 4S. However, I upgraded to the iPhone 5 yesterday and although the device does sync and the music plays, I have to turn the volume up to riducluous levels just to be able to hear it slightly. Has anyone else had similar issues? If so, is it Apple or Ford that I need to speak to about it?
  13. Hi all Had my Fiesta Zetec since March 2013 and LOVE it, have been driving for almost 20 years and this is the first car I have actually owned!! Sarah
