      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hi I have owned various Fiesta Diesels models for 25 years and driven them over the same route. I recently bought a 6 month old ford fiesta "econetic" 1.6 diesel edge and the fuel economy is frankly appaling. I am now getting under 40 mpg on what is an urban cycle route which is way way below the government figures, the Honest John average (85% of claimed,) and also 20% less than I used to achieve on the same route with all 3 previous fiesta diesels (which all had emission levels over that claimed for this model). It has been in for inspection under warranty twice and as there are no fault codes reported, the dealer and Ford will do nothing about it. I reckon I am now paying around £200+ a year more on fuel for this car than I would, have on my previous models. I am so incensed by this and the lack of response from the deaer (and Ford) that I am plannng to take the dealer to small claims court to claim back these extra costs. If anyone has had a similar experience I'd really appreciate their advice!
