coming back to your post gillyallan i had a 1.4 fiesta 2012 plate previously and it was hard to part with it ,cracking little car but this new one is a bit special .with my prev car you had to change up fairly quick so its hard having to realise that most of town driving is in 3rd gear on the new one !
the main benefit is at high speeds .at 70 on my old car it was cracking on 3000 revs on the new one about 2300 ,so thats where you gain .my latest mpg was 42.9 not bad i guess
thsnks dmizz93 ,well ive had assurances that theyll strip the clutch down and ifi ts the pressure plate whuich they suspect they will replace the whole clutch .i guess this is why its been booked in for 2 days .one things for sure ,i find you have to use the clutch quite often on this car specially in traffic so i cant wait till its as it should be again . going in on 18th .will post outcome of the repair
well they greased the mechanism up on the clutch pedal area and its made no difference .they say its comparable to other cars ! they are having a giraffe .anyhow im going back to the dealer who sold me the car on monday and will attempt to swap the car wirth another they have in stock after ive test drove it ! whether they will or not remains to be seen ,but if not thyell have to repair the clutch .sadly i donrt like driving the car now because of the clutch pedal and for 2 pins id have my old car back i think hopefully they will have found the locking wheel nuts when i arrive there .not getting my hopes up on this either ..
further updates to foollow on what i see is going to be a lot of grief..
