    Nothing major for me to worry about ! Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  2. What's your MPG?

    My ST Line 17 plate 2 litre diesel 150ps averages around 47 mpg I reset it every time I fill up. This is mixed driving if I'm in town a lot it drops to around 43 mpg . The most I've had out of this car since May is 56.8 mpg on a 300 mile journey. I'm really pleased with the mpg coming from a 1 litre ecoboost fiesta I don't spend hardly any more money on fuel ,amazing for such a heavy car Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  3. Servicing and DAB issues.

As for the dab my last car which was a fiesta titanium x had a terrible problem with the dab I never bothered with it just used fm. Sorry can't be of any real help Sent from my iPad using Ford OC

  5. 64 plate / 24,500 miles Titanium x 1.0 ecoboost 125 Leaking coolant , new water pump . Another leak a month later new timing belt cover and gasket replaced as cover had warped, error codes kept coming on for the camshaft sensors. I've had 7 brand new fiestas and this was the worst by far, just unlucky I guess . No longer have the car traded in a few weeks ago for a kuga ST line as I needed something bigger Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  6. 2017 kuga questions ? Lights and bonnet bra ?

    I get this on my fiesta it usually clears up within a day or 2 , I'm due to take delivery of my kuga st line frozen white in the next few weeks , so I will keep an eye on it Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  7. Headgasket failure on the 1L Ecoboost

    My car fiesta ecoboost 125 ps has got to go in under warranty this week due to leaking water pump car just over 2 years old 21,000 miles 64 plate , I was told by the technician under no circumstances let the coolant level get too low as the engine will blow up he said this has happened to many cars Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  8. Thanks for the reply, that's very poor would have thought it would be late 30s early 40s , I get nearly double that on runs in my fiesta and that's with Thule wing bar roof rack on the car Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  9. Thinking of going for one of the new shape kuga when they come in around November time . Was wondering if anyone on here has one and what sort of mpg they are getting. Currently got ecoboost fiesta 125ps and get really good economy from it Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  10. Some minor issues, opinions wanted

    I would reject it if they can't fix your problems, I'm on my second my mk 7.5 never had any problems with them starting ,fire up instantly,could be to do with your glovebox light staying on , others on here have had this issue where the glove box has not been fixed in properly and doesn't close firmly. As for the humming or groaning sound reversing on a slope I've had this on previous fiestas from new . It's a problem with the clutch , it is annoying it's been happening for years they should have sorted this by now. Again lots of other members have this issue. Good luck at the dealership.

  11. Mk 7.5 Humming Noise In Reverse

    Try searching for ( New fiesta ecoboost groan when reversing) There's a couple of pages .seems to be the clutch like thought
  12. Mk 7.5 Humming Noise In Reverse

    It's not just the Ecoboost. I had a 58 plate mk 7 that did it and a 59 my 11 plate diesel didn't have the issue. When I traded in for my first ecoboost 13 plate I noticed it after around 1500 miles . My current 64 ecoboost has been fine so far . If I remember sometime ago there was a post on here and I think it was down to a clutch issue
  13. Window Rattle

    I had this on one of my last fiestas took it to the dealer and they ordered a new window regulater. Once this was replaced it was fine!
  14. Ford Fiesta Ecoboost Mpg

    Been doing some long journeys lately. Managed to get 67.3 mpg this 125ps has beaten my old 100ps even with my thule roof rack attached
  15. Strange One!!!

    Could be a door mouse! Lol being serious never heard of anything like that. Had a window regulater replaced under warranty but it was a rattle noise on a previous 2011 fiesta . You could try taking the door card off
