well i thought id put you out ur missery! i called the fiesta brand team to find out the story... alot of customers were complaining the bottom line of the display wasnt very visable due to the shape of the cluster around it....

as a result they re position the writting on the displays on all models of fiesta...

the display is the same but the software is different so it only displays the 2 lines making it clearer and easier to read!

rathher annoyed coz i like the 3 lines!! but geuss il have to live with the 2!!



That's OK Ronnie.

Mine's now unique as it has 3 lines......maybe I'll get more part exchange value when the time comes eh?? ;)

on a 3 line display the bottom line isnt that clear... u find half it isnt visable due to the way the cluster is shaped... so it was pointless havin it. so they made it 2 lines and repositioned the writting to make it clearer and more visible

That's a shame since it doesn't really matter if the bottom line isn't that visible. The odometer isn't the most important thing whilst driving and I only tend to glance at it occasionally and it's nice that it's always on display, even if slightly obscured. (I haven't had this problem though)

Drat ! I wish I'd read this thread earlier. I spent 1/2 hour trying to find the way to get 3 lines as shown in the manual instead of my 2 lines.

The two-liner looks a WHOLE lot less... Uh... 'Elegant' than the three liner, huh?

Three liner has a modern, thin font and the two liner sorta looks like an early 80's calculator. :-(

Looks like Jar will get 2 lines then, and if Johnny reappears then he can confirm the date theory.



Well Mine turned out to be a 2 line display. Build date: 20th May 2009. Only thing im missing is a permanent mileometer and that doesn't bother me at all. As the physical size of the screen is still the same I doubt its a money saving measure, more likely just an improvement

we noticed this on fiestas that came throught early this year. It was a minor computer upgrade and all cars we get through are 2 lines now and 3 lines are the original fiestas. I have not seen a 3 line new fiesta for ages now Bluetooth or no bluetooth
