Hi all, ive got a fiesta metal and I was just wondering if the green arrow showing you to change gear works on your metals, as mine doesn't.

Have something to contribute?

Hi,

Doesn't work on my 12 plate Metal either. I guess it needs an extra that I didn't choose. My partner has it on his focus though and it drives him mad as constantly tells him to change into 6th gear at 40mph!

You only usually get that feature on an Econetic model - although I think most models from 2012 get it now.
Saying that it did come on my 2010 Zetec-S - I believe because it is a diesel. Have disabled the green arrow (or "shift up indicator" as it's called) as it got on my nerves!

I was thinking they wouldn't bother putting it on a sporty car as I didn't buy it for its economy:). I've got a loan car today and it's got it on and it would definately annoy me as well as its on all the time. I've got the white one and it's a great car to drive. It never fails to put a smile on my face. I love the exhaust sound so alot of revving has to be done.

My 60 plate 2010 Titanium 1.6 petrol has that annoying arrow. Maybe Ford forgot to add it for the Metal? :lol:

Ive got a 1.25 edge as a loan car today as mines in having a leak fixed and yes it does say to change early. If I paid any attention to that I'd hardly move as it is a very slow car. Can do 4000 rpm and still feels slow. Can't wait to get my car back tomorrow. God I miss him 😥
