Hi All

The time has come to buy an S-MAX (2 kids, existing car way too small!) but I'm struggling to get some questions answered by dealers and the Ford Website. Any assistance would be much appreciated!

  • New 2010 Ford S-MAX 2.0 Diesel engines - data on combined MPG, 0-60 and CO2 for the 115, 140, 140 Powershift and 163 versions of this new engine. (Ford web site only has data for old model, dealers have no clue)
  • Keyless entry option - does this also include keyless ingition (i.e. stop/start button) or do you still need to insert and turn the key once you're in the car?
  • ASLD - Does the New 2010 S-MAX come with the Adjustable Speed Limiter Device (ASLD) that I've read about in some of the reviews? Again, the Ford website and dealers are oblivious.
  • Mats - Would a new S-MAX come with a full set of mats or is that something to ask/haggle for as an option?
Many thanks for any advice you can offer. It has been frustrating to speak with so many dealers who are happy to take an order but can't tell me exactly what I'm ordering!
