Had my 1.0 Ecoboost Zetec S now for 2 days and i'm loving it, such a nice car to drive

 

These ecoboost engine's are amazing, so much power for a 1 litre and quite refined also... Good Job Ford !!!

 

Got mine in Deep impact Blue with sat nav and 17" alloys with 1,025 miles on the clock for £11.999

 

Any decent guides for the Audio/Sat nav knocking about ? The manual is rubbish and im not finding it very intuitive ?

 

Not got many pics as the weather has been rubbish, but managed to grab a couple in between showers

Everytime I see a mk 7.5 with a body kit, I'm like....need to get the rest of the body kit fitted on mine :P

How old are you and what is your insurance like on your car as I am looking to do the same as you when I pass

I'm 28 and I'm on my wife's insurance, for us both to be insured on that car its £340 for the year, but she has years of no claims so I'm not a good example of what insurance costs, I'm at work at the moment but when i get a chance I'll get a quote on my car as if it was just me being insured and let you know!

Looks lovely in Deep Impact Blue

The only thing stopping me from ordering it in that colour is the fact my current car is almost the same colour & I want something different

Any advantage of the Sony SatNav compared to the Ford one?

£137  a year,  getting on in life does have advantages, although I would rather be like these 19 and 20 years olds and driving my car.   What happened to driving heaps for a few years after passing your test like we did in my day  ;) .  Only joking, good luck if you can afford it.

What bugs me most about this ecoboost engine is the knocking noise. After 95% of my journeys it does it whether in gear at the lights or stationary and in neutral.

 

Subtle vibration felt through the brake pedal too. This is NOT just being pedantic over a slightly noisy engine, this is a distinct knocking noise.

 

Been back to dealer twice and they heard the noise but they might as well have laughed in my face! It is perfectly normal and happens in all ecoboost cars and you can try one of ours to prove our point. It is simply a noisy fuel pump as these small engines have to work very hard.

 

I did explain that it stops when you open the bonnet and close it again but that is not significant apparently.

 

The only other issue is that about half a dozen times in the year I have had this car, the bonnet has flicked open onto the catch. Nothing wrong with it at all says the dealer.

 

That's because it never does it when the dealer has it. :(

I cant say I've noticed any knocking noise in mine at all or any vibration through the pedal.    And surely if the fuel pump has to work hard this would mean its dumping alot of fuel into the engine,  so how come its so economical then.  Can someone more intelligent than me explain this.

 

 

Have you taken it to another dealer to be looked at,   bonnet opening should not happen either.

The dealer accepts that the bonnet shouldn't open but they say all they can do is investigate it and when they have done so, everything is fine. They greased the catch, checked the various settings of the spring etc, opened and closed it.

 

Will try another dealer to see what they think to the noise.
