The Smell

18 July 2013 - 05:25 PM

hi ,im just wondering if anyone has or knows someone that has experienced the following on a 2012 fiesta which I have.


when you turn the demister blowers on (without air conditioning on)I get a real foul acrid smell coming from the vents .its just not a nice smell at all .its not like burning its hard to describe ,but has anyone else had this?


I may take it back to the dealers it shouldn't be doing this should it .

this smell by the way happens in all locations so its not something from outside coming in for sure.


hers hoping someone may have an idea

hi guys

just noticed on my one year old fiesta that when you open both front doors behind the door hinges ie the wing interior there is grey bare metal .shouldnt this be painted ?

im just wondering if it may rust there in the future.

shall i mention it to the main dealer do you think?


best regards

hi guys ,as a recent purchaser of a fiesta 1.4 zetec ,ive just done my first official mileage check at 178 miles and its come out as 27.6mpg?


now i know i do a large number of very short journeys to and from work and its been cold etc but that figure seems alarmingly low .
