Hi all

Been having problems with my focus since i picked it up from the main dealer but they can't find it as there computer says NO!!!


The problem i'm having is after driving the car for a while it losses power and start juddering while trying to pick up speed this is now starting to p*@s me off and really want to get it sorted so any help would be great.

The car is a 1.8 zetec 2009.

Have something to contribute?

Take it back and use the warranty, if they cant find the problem, try another dealer, if no one can find the problem get your money back!

My fiesta did similar to this when new. Have you asked the dealer to see if a ECU update is available?

yes you are well within your rights, the vehicle is not fit for purpose and as such you have the right to reject the goods and get a full refund. so if it comes to it, get this done sooner rather than later!

have they checked the likes of the fuel filter?
