  1. Hi, Seems to be an intermittent issue, but sometimes when I unlock the car it unlocks the trunk/boot too. I realise when i start to drive off the notification that the boot is open. Anyone else have this issue or have any suggestions? usually unlock it by opening the door (not from key fob) ...can't remember if i used the fob when this issue occured last tho..
  2. Hi All, Has anyone had any issues with the rubber around the doors on their Focus? Attached is a photo of mine, which shows it hanging off and sticks out everytime the door is opened. I've got it sorted (they stuck it back with something...glue? resin??) twice now. they dont seem to have a permanent solution for this. any suggestions??
  3. UPDATE:Provisionally signed up (just need to get my credit card from home to finalise :)...seems like a good deal ..for me anyway...as it's my 1st service and dont know any decent locals...was also advised that i could cancel anytime and be refunded up to the last service (ie. if 11months later i decide to sell the car and cancel before the next service, i would be refunded the amount i paid...with a £30 admin fee...which still works out cheaper)....any thoughts on this?
  4. defo not worth it if your car is less than 3 years old. I'm yet to find an independent....searched here and google, but no joy

  7. booked mine in for a recall this Friday. first registered June '12.... is this something to be worried about?...got to make 2 trips to Gatwick Airport this week from east london (~65mls each way)
  8. Hi all, not sure if this is the right topic but have a quick question. Got a baby due in the next 2weeks and everything's kinda pushed back my plans to look into servicing the car (since i purchased it last Summer) From my experience, I've always gone with local garages that have a good enough feedback from other car owners. Even more recently, tried to fix an issue with my dad's Ford a few months back and the Ford dealership. They were about as useless "as !Removed! on a bull' and would not fix the a faulty parking sensor - despite him buying it from there 1 month before.... anyway..long story short...Havent had much luck with Ford dealerships. Can anyone recommend any honest garages that actually know their stuff? (particularly in east london) much appreciated.
  9. it's taken from the front looking back under the driver's seat. no errors come up when driving the car though..i was thinking maybe the heated seats??...havent tested it yet...can anyone confirm?
  10. Hi All, was going to clean the car when i noticed a wire underneath the driver's seat. It's not connected....is this important or need to connect somewhere????????? its a 2012 mk 3 focus titanium x
  11. black............ .....tbh i really wanted frozen white, but i guess my reluctance to get it in black helped drive the price down ;)
  12. I must admit the Zetec S does seem to have more of a 'fun' factor to it.... ..but...after a long-winded visit to the dealership today i decided on a Titanium X.. I just couldn't say no, i got a reeeeeally good deal on it, not only is it fully specced (upgraded alloys, heated seats,etc), but 6 months newer and only a couple hundred quid more...lol I based the decision on my optimistic outlook that maybe within the next few years I'd have a larger family and was looking at the re-sell value. ...all is not lost,...I'm trying to convince my younger cousin to purchase the Zetec S i had my eye on :P
  13. hmm...had a look at the facelift version..(must say i do like the aston-ish grille),...but dont think i can stretch the budget. saying that...would it be a better idea to wait till the facelift model comes out before purchasing a mk3 (as in, the mk3 prices should go down)...right? i suppose the zetec s : titanium its a comprimise, but as long as the spec on the zetec s isnt 'terrible' i wouldnt mind. I've seen some low specced cars in the past that really do comprimise in not only tech and appearance, but also the suspension, drivability. is the stock system any good? (sound quality 'tinny',etc)...does the stock allow to play via usb/bluetooth??
  14. Hi, Just trying to gauge the differences between an EcoBoost Titanium and a EcoBoost Zetec S. I'm looking to purchase a mk3 focus (ecoboost) and just trying to see which one i should go for. Now, i don't know much about these but have test drove an ecoboost titanium and love it!....for 1.0l it really does compare my previous small car (MINI)... I'm looking into the differences between the 2 types mentioned and have to find that the differences are, for around the same budget, one is an EcoBoost with a higher spec (Sony system, etc.) and the other has a standard system but has all the stylings of an ST..... is this correct? I'm trying to find something in between....(compromise, that can be justified) The reason for the purchase is because i have a baby on the way and need a decent car. Must haves: Parking sensors electric windows at least 17" alloys ;) ...is the standard system any good?
  15. Hi All, newbie from London here! Thought I'd sign up to here and introduce myself as I'm hoping to be the new owner of a 3gen Focus reeeeeeeeal soon. (baby forces new car ;) ) Done a bit of research but wanted to get more active on the forum....*scatter brain at the moment with so much going on at the moment (hence the username) :P
