Collected my car and it seems much better starting from 1st gear and more responsive now, they said they updated something to do with the recall?

Have something to contribute?

Like your computer, Ford probably just rebooted it LOL.

You Cynic, but you may be right. :D

I never mentioned the 1st gear thing to ford I was going to give the car a few more mile to loosen up, this was just a 1500 miles check up I really don't know what they've done apart from the recall on the battery thingy so if I had mentioned it and they said they had rebooted it then yes I agree it could possibly be the placebo effect!

Thing is, you're probably right.
The power of suggestion is not to be underestimated.

This is usually the case when your car goes in for work and you get a naff loan car. When you get your own back it always feels miles better than it did in the first place.

Absolutely! My Focus was an absolute joy to get back into after 24 hours with a Ka!

A colleague of mine used to work for Mercedes, even he said the power of merely washing a car when it's in for servicing makes the customer feel like their car is new again...
