In Topic: Heavier Clutch On A Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost 2014?

further update

to be fair the dealership staff were pleasant enough and explained the clutch is working fine and ford will not pay them out under warranty if they fitted a new one as its technically not faulty.

 

i really dont know what to do with this now apart from trade it in .its just one issue that is spoiling it for me .the car as a whole is fine apart from this one issue

update

 well they say 4 technicians studied it and one took it home road tested it and they said it was fine.

i find it heavy personally .i am 61 probably not as strong in the legs as someone younger ,but thats that really ,when i suggested to exchange the car the rep said hed give me a good price for my car....unreal

well thats that then im stuck with it ,guess ill have to trade it in for something else and lose more money or opt for an automatic .

so wish i still had my 2012 fiesta 1.4 and hadnt traded it in for this one

wheel nuts done .they say they cant find any fault with the clutch so its unlikely anyhting will be done

will find out for definite later

maybe its a feature of the new engine? my old car was a 1.4 fiesta 2012 and was as light as a feather ,even my hire car if you hold the car on the biting point in say first for a few seconds you can feel the pressure underfoot.and this car is a 2014 1.0 litre ecoboost zetec covering 1400 miles !

someone said at work it could just be that its a new car and the clutch will bed in and become easier in time

anyone got any thoughts on this scenario?

hi watman , interesting post above . at the local dealership (same garage group from where i got the car but different branch) one of the mechanics said to me that ford changed the clutch springs this year .everyone at the garage apart from this guy denies this .would be interesting if anyone knows whether this could be the problem .

 

the branch where i got the car also deny this so someone is telling porkies .

anyway ill knwo the answer to my problem by the weekend and ill post the results on here

pretty good mpg that ,i do a lot of short runs  so i guess thats why mines a bit lower.
