  1. Hi All, I have been looking at a Ford Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost on Autotrader, 63 plate at Ace Car Sales, Bury. Lancs. It's on at £4795 with 109k miles. Always had Focus's before but was thinking of this one. Is there anything I should be looking closely at? Obviously the mileage is an item but the dealer reckons 150k miles before a belt change? The mileage has been mostly motorway and there is a good service history. I only do about 7000 a year, so if I keep it a while that may help. Any comments greatly appreciated. Cheers.
  2. Hi All, I purchased a 2011 Focus Sport Zetec 1.6TDCi (not new shape) about 3 mnths ago. This is the model with the blue display for the radio/cd, sat nav & bluetooth etc. Been great so far, just a niggling couple of items recently - the clock keeps going back to 20/02/11!! With the ignition on &/or engine running its possible to reset the clock to the correct present date & time but when switching off it goes back to the 20/02/11 date and the rev counter sticks on 1000 revs & the fuel gauge stays on whatever level you have instead of going back to zero!!! Never had this with any previous Focus, it is first registered 10/03/11, wonder if that Feb date was when it was set up / fitted originally? Could this be an ECU problem? HELP PLEASE! Many thanks. Ian
