  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.

  4. Try searching for ( New fiesta ecoboost groan when reversing) There's a couple of pages .seems to be the clutch like thought
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. The problem I had on my old 11 plate titanium was it would do it randomly even at night sometimes. It definitely was some kind of fault within a short distance it could dim several times out on an open road, I was soon to replace the car as I only keep them around 18 months to 2 years so I didn't bother getting it looked at Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  10. Definitely no dimming on my new car the only way I can dim is with the switch which turns the fogs green headlight indicator stays constant bright green 100% of the time in all conditions. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  11. Mine was held at Dagenham in Essex. They hold an enormous amount of fords that come into the country. Not to sure about the transporters they use I have seen them though at my dealer
  12. I had this on one of my previous fiestas 11 plate Titanium the green light would for some reason keep changing from bright to dim on the dashboard at random times I thought it was abnormal never done anything about it. It did concern me at times whether the auto lights were actually turning on and off as a result of this . I'm almost certain this is a small fault as I've had Titanium 13 plate and now have Titanium X 64 plate without this problem
  13. Kia Koala! lol Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  14. What about the Hyundai Pony!
  15. I have the camera on my new Titanium x which I took delivery of late December. My phone is always connected to my car been using everything from heated seats, heated screen . Have the heater blower on high and lights on even on some short journeys. Haven't had any problems to date with battery. I don't have the sat nav though!
