I just read an article in autoexpress about a new fiesta facelift being due september time of next year, and i was just thinkin about the things i would like to see change and to not, heres mine;
1- A six speed box
2- Rear disk brakes
3- A better range of petrol engines i.e 1.0 turbo ecoboost engines 100 bhp but 50 mpg in real life and 35 pound anual road tax
4- Drop the 1.4 tdci and just have the 1.6 tdci 95 in the lower specs i.e edge and zetec and the 1.6 115 BHP in the top specs diesel forms i.e titanium zetecS
5- A bit more sound insulation still thin theres a tad to much road noise
I think other than them 5 points i think the fiesta is perfect in everyway for a supermini
And please ford do not mess with the styling atall !!
Please list yours, you never know they might be reading haha
So basicly our 10 plate focus had a little knock and we have been given a black ford focus zetec 1.6 tdci hire car it has the sport and comms pack.
The car itself is stunning compared to the rather boring/plain look of our moondust silver focus.
But the condition of the car is horrendous, all the alloys are marked the paint work is shocking! Dents, deeps scratches you name its got it the interior is no better, looks like someone has tried stealing the sat nav, all the seats are stained, the windscreen is cracked, its done 16,000 miles (since new) without even a service, the oil is as black as black can be and is as runny as water, the whole car vibrates at anything above 70 mph, this poor car has really been through it,(i would of taken it back if i had paid to hire it).
Not that i ever would but i am definatly not ever buying an ex hire car.
The first thing i did when i got it home was gIve it a good wash. Also drives diffrent to our car which is fundamentally the same it seem to be more jumpy and i can only seem to get 50 mpg max out of it, also the steering is much stifer comparing both cars in sport mode.
On a good note though it seems the bigger alloys dont ruin the ride atall! Still rides hard like ours but is very well damped never feels crashy
Rant again is over haha
