  1. Hi everyone, I am looking at buying a Ford Focus, i previously owned a 60 plate Zetec Petrol but the tax was nearly £200 per year and my average MPG was 37. I loved the car but i am looking for something in a lower tax bracket and higher MPG, can anyone help? I have been told to avoid 1.6 Diesels as they have loads of problems…. Is this true? Any advice would be fab, thank you. Rebecca
  2. Hi thanks again for replies, i will try adjusting my clutch control and see if that makes a difference but i am glad that it is nothing to fear- you guys were more effective than going to the garage so thank you all so much :)
  3. Thank you everyone you have put my mind at ease :)
  4. Hi Captain Haddock, Thank you for replying. Ok that is nice to hear but it doesn't happen every time and it does sound like i am flicking a metal ruler under my feet- does the ABS make this sound every time or is it sporadic? I just thought it was strange that the garage seem clueless on where the sound is coming from and why but it is not a ford dealership so maybe this is why.....
  5. Hi all, I have recently bought a 2010 (60 plate) Black Ford Focus Zetec 1.6 Petrol- overall happy with it but have noticed a distinct clunk or more of a spinging noise when i change from 1st to 2nd gear. It doesn't happen everytime but i recon about 70% of the time i hear this noise, i have taken it to the garage they can't see any problems with it and they have taken it for a drive and have not heard to noise. Has anyone had a similar problem of know if this is a common problem? It sounds like it is coming right out of the drivers footwell and it is loud enough for a passenger to hear as they have noticed it too. Any help/ advise would be greatly apprecaited. Thank you.
