  1. I have a 2014 focus zetec s 1.0 ecoboost and I find that when it tells you to change into sixth Its usually between 40 and 45 I leave it to nearer 45mph otherwise I find the gear is to high for the speed but it also depends on the gradient of the road. But more often than not I tend to use sixth gear on dual carriageways motorways or long roads were my speed is I don't think it's a fault! I think it's a case of using your own judgement when your selecting sixth gear but if I was you I'd try changing at around 45mph and you should find that the car is a lot happier Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  2. From what you've said it does sound like you will need to sort out the clutch as you do have to press down the clutch before you press the start button as it's all part if the stop start set up Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  4. Defo the 125 bhp 1.0 they are a very good engine plenty of pulling power and quick of the mark I have the 1.0 125 bhp zetec s and it's great to drive and you'll be surprised on how quick and responsive they are they will beat most cars of the mark if you plant your foot into the carpet. The engine has plenty of torque Trust me it will put a smile on your face Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  5. Very nice. On the upside the black will look clean for longer! You would have been for ever cleaning the frozen white and as Jimenez said you could always put a body kit on it Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  7. I bought a brand-new zetec s about a month ago the spec is very good inside I personally think that there is not a huge difference in interior spec on the Zetec S and the titanium. you get the sync system for your phone hands free. USB & aux for mp3 phone ect ect the sound out if the DAB radio is very good. All I added to mine was privacy glass and the city pack which gave me leci windows all round leci folding mirrors and rear parking sensors. My previous car was a 57 plate titanium which I owned for 4 years and I must say I much prefer the zetec s the road holding is far superior because of the sports suspension as the titanium is softer ride although it does hold the road well but has some body roll the zetec S Is more assured and great fun to drive and has plenty of gadgets inside to keep the family (teenage boys ) happy with all their gadjets to plug in. Have a look at FORDRETAILONLINE that's where I bought mine from and picked it up from my local ford dealership and saved a few thousand pounds Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  14. On collecting your car it'll be just the usual stuff like showing you all the controls ect all I would say is that when they do all that they should sync for phone to the car for your hands free they did mine and my wife's when we picked up our car Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  15. Hi Craig I've my zetec s for about 4 weeks now and I've got to say the car is absolutely brilliant .I had my red 1.0 zetec s ecoboost with privacy glass leci windows all round leci folding mirrors and rear parking censors for a week when I took the family up to Yorkshire so the car was fully loaded kids and luggage DVD player with 2 screens plugged in a sat nav on the go and mobile phones plugged in. Pulling power on the motorway was not a problem whatsoever Infact it left a lot of cars behind and that was on the m62 which is very hilly. Then while in Yorkshire we went into Whitby on a day out so u have to go over the Yorkshire moors and it was great fun the road holding performance acceleration everything was faultless the drive on the country roads was like a fairground ride that's the only way I can describe it .The mpg was good aswell considering the car was fully loaded and let's just say I didn't spare the horses haha! On the way home and it's a brand new engine with only about 60 miles on the clock and it still managed 45 mpg TRUST ME YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
