  1. Thanks Lenny..Appreciate the advice. Not sure yet how efficient the Ford garages here in Prague are yet or if they will even understand the recommendations you make. Not everything is translated the same! Will be a fun learning experience for sure :)
  2. Many thanks...sounds expensive ?
  3. I live in Prague, and 4 days ago picked up 2008 2.0 TDCi S-Max Titanium. Drove it home, fine. Took it to work yesterday, fine. Went to go home, wouldn't start. Helpful guy at the garage close to work got it started. Then he checked that alternator was charging the battery - all ok. Drove home for about 30 mins. This morning, nothing, dead. I'm assuming it's just a flat battery issue? But, is there a chance that I am leaving something 'on' that is draining the battery while car is not used? The handbook is unfortunately in Dutch so not much use! Plan on taking it to Ford dealer to get everything checked over (when I get it started !!). Appreciate any ideas? ...Thanks ;)
  4. Just bought a 2008 S-Max Titanium 2.0 TDCi. I live in Prague.
