Booooo Hoooooo!! Dented Car.

14 February 2011 - 10:36 AM

I'm devastated as I found a dent in passenger door last night :(

I just came home from a 4 hour drive and I thought I would just give my car a check as the weather was terrible. The rain had managed to clear all the dirt that had accumulated over the past 2 months :rolleyes: but it also revealed a nasty dent in the passenger door :angry:

It looks like someone has hit my car with their door. But I have no idea when it would have happened as I use various car parks every day and my car was absolutely filthy, so it might have been covered for a few weeks.

The dent is probably 2 inches long and looks more like a crease. It hasn't removed any paint, but it's noticeable if you look along the body of the car in the light. Does anyone know if this can be removed and the likely cost? I'm not sure if I should go to the main dealer, as I have a service next week, or find some dent specialist?

It's probably not that big, but I've been so careful for a whole year and always go out of my way to make sure I park somewhere with no cars close by. Also, my car is a lease car, so I need to get it fixed or else the leasing company will charge me an extortionate amount to fix it.

First Service

29 January 2011 - 09:11 PM

My car was registered on the 3rd of March 2010, so I need to have it serviced before that date. Do you know if it's possible for me to get it serviced right now and not void the warranty or is too soon? Also, how much did you pay for your first service?

This is my first new car so I have no experience dealing with servicing so any advice is much appreciated!


Number Plate Screw Caps

23 August 2010 - 08:33 AM

I don't know how, but this morning whilst closing the boot one of the number plate screw caps shattered and fell off. :unsure:

Has anyone replaced these caps and can you recommend one to buy? I'm not sure if it's a universal size screw and then I could just buy these: Screw Caps

Also, it was the yellow cap that broke, do I need to replace with the same colour?

Thanks in advance!


1St Central Insurance

My insurance expires soon on my Fiesta and so far the cheapest quote has been from 1st Central Insurance, however I have never heard of them. Has anybody used them and are they any good? I'm not sure if I should pay a bit more and go with a bigger name like Admiral.

Door Seals

15 March 2010 - 07:58 PM

I just noticed today the rubber seal on the passenger door is peeling off, has anyone else had this problem? Is this something Ford will fix under warranty as the car is less than 2 weeks old? Or would it be easier and cheaper if I just glue it back on?

I'm a little disappointed it has a problem already even though it is minor.
