Zetec S Tdci Feels Sluggish
Posted 25 January 2013 - 02:51 PM
New member here so apologies if this topic has been covered before!
I've recently purchased a 2011 zetec s - TDCI having upgraded from the previous equivalent mk7.
The first thing that I've noticed is that it seems to be slower off the mark through 1st & 2nd gears. I don't know wether I'm just adjusting to it or if its cause it seems a bigger heavier car.
Secondly the MPG doesn't seem as high as my old car. I know we've had some cold weather of late and this can affect but I'm struggling to reach 49+ MPG whereas I used to get 55+ easily.
I assumed that being the same engine size but being more economical as the insurance & tax are lower that I would have better fuel consumption.
Has anyone else found this having upgraded from the earlier model?
Thanks in advance

It's whether you can convince your dealer to do it for you without charging...

How do I go about asking the dealer to update the firmware?
