Ford Fusion 1.4Tdci

2 posts in this topic

That all i have to say is WAW what a car.

I have just returned from touring France in the car.

from Calais,Normandy, Brittany,and then down to the south France and then back to Paris and then

home all in 16 days.

I was a bit sceptical in driving that mileage in a small engine car.

but we where 3 including myself with the boot full and it chugged away at 75-80 mph all day.

I worked out mpg at around the 60 mark, which was great, down side spent £180 in tolls for the motorways.

but we did do over 2900 miles round trip anti clockwise of France.

weather was 30-36c down the south and still quite warm up till Calais.

mileage on the car is now hitting 45k on a 04 plate car.

it did not use any water or oil.

car did feel better in pulling as the French don't have ultra low sulphur fuel and at 1.29 euro a Lt it was cheeper.

so good on ya Henry Ford.

I am a driving instructor and I am on my second Fusion 1.4 TDCi and still love it too bits my old had the clutch start slipping at about 65,000 miles and mcurrent ones i getting a little up set at 57,00 miles but this are learner miles and is being slipped and dropped all over the place so its doing VERY well. I average 40,00 a year and still get about 49 mpg around town. Every so often fill up with SHELL V power. You wil be amazed by extra power you will get out of it. I was

Great cars cant wait until they bring out a new design similar to the New Fiesta........ WHEN WHEN WHEN
