1.8 diesel known problems
Posted 10 January 2009 - 05:24 PM
Problems seen so far:
- biggest problem is battery drain
many smaxers reported battery drain issue up to the point it is not possible to start the car any more
Cars effected - earlier build 2006-beginning 2007
fix - ford are fitting a more powerful alternator the one used with 2.0 litre engine or the 1.8 with heated windscreen on some models.
If you are looking to buy a 2006-2007 smax ask the owner or a garage if this has been done.
I count on 1.8 diesel owners on this site to complete this list as it is not the motor I am driving.
