Need Some Advice, Studio Specification

25 posts in this topic

Recently ordered a new fiesta studio, found out last night by having a look at the pre-reg cars at the back of the dealer that it doesn't have electric windows. Its clearly stated in the brochure and on the website that the car has these as standard.

Where do i stand on this when i go collect the car on the 15th? It's sorta put me off, wish i'd gone for the higher spec now if i knew that. Can I expect some discount?

it could be a standard feature that was brought in later, what reg were the ones you were looking at?

I don't think the Studio originally came with electric windows when the Mk7 was first launched, but I'm pretty sure it was made standard in the last couple of years - probably because nobody bought the original Studio as it had no luxuries at all.

Just did a quick look on eBay - seems to me that 2008/2009 cars had wind-up windows and 2010 onwards have electric ones :)

Unless you specifically ordered one of those stock cars in the dealer rather than a 'new' one, your car should come with elecric windows. If it doesn't then I think you have a case to reject the car (or negotiate a discount which I wouldn't want to do). Have you clarified this with the dealer ?

I haven't spoken to the dealer on this yet, wanted some advice here first. Going to wait for the VIN number so I can clarify the specs, then i'll discuss it with the dealer. As long as you think I have some grounds for some kind of compensation i'm happy.

When you do get the VIN number (or registration number), stick it into ETIS (etis.ford.com) and it will list the features on the car.

Cheers for the advice people. Just chucked my car into ford etis and seems like it does have electric windows according to this.

"Power Front Windows One Touch Up/Do" and a cheeky "DAB Radio" not bad for a brand new £7500 car :)

How accurate is ford etis? Seems strange that i seen a few pre-reg ones with wind-ups out in the back. I'm having nightmares about it ahah!

Bet you would mate but I'd still go with a massive grin on me face :D

Awww nooo :( :unsure: you know how I like our little day trips out for the midnight bulb club taking clients out to the zoo to change their bulbs..

Also, if you don't take me to the zoo how are you gonna throw me in the lion enclosure to make it look like an accident :P

Just had a nice drive to birmingham anyway, black keys - lonely boy blasting out the stereo, can of no fear in the passenger seat, osrams lighting up the unlit roads ahead nicely n the cruise control (another feature not on the sport model.. ^_^) set to 68. Made for a nice easy drive.

So that'll narrow it down anyway if you fancy a playful game of hide n seek while I'm here ;)
