#471075 Time To Say Goodbye

Posted by antman99 on 29 March 2015 - 06:04 PM

So After 8 years of driving Fiesta's the time has come to move up, just ordered a Volvo XC60.


The Volvo Forums are no where near as active as this one and I wanted to take this chance to thank everyone who over the years has been really very helpful, I will always love Ford as my first car, fine the dealer service is a shambles but I do not expect much more from Volvo to be honest.


The only last thing now is to try and sell my fiesta, my local dealer offered less than Volvo which I though was rubbish I am considering we buy any car or similar, I would like to sell privately but cannot be doing with the hassle of it to be honest.

Am I the only person here who treats courtesy cars with respect, I know it must be a downgrade going from your ST but lets me reasonable, that car will be sold to a customer at some point in the future and having you and whoever else ragged it and treated it like general cr*p is not great, I treat a courtesy car how I would expect someone to have treated a used car before me.

Colleen, I am not surpised to hear this and there lies my major problem , if i thought for a minute the problem would be fixed if I brought two new wheels fine id be annoyed but I would like with it, but the chances are if I buy 2 more replacements it will just happen again, I'm just driving with them buckled and if they get any worse I will have to buy third party alloys but it just annoys me in a car that is now only just over a year old the wheels are buckled, Iv tried every avenue with Ford and have had enough so all I can do is try and find some alloys that the OEM Ford logo will fit in because I hate the aftermarket look.


#109179 Fitting 'ford Power' Start Button In Fiesta Mk7

can i explain why i dont think it is pointless, i have the TDCI and as you are probably aware it needs to be kept for a few seconds at ignition before starting for glow plugs, so i turn the key to ignition put my seat belt on then start the engine, although i haven't added my button to my new car had it in my old mk 6.5 and used it for the above purpose. Thank you for the guide it is VERY helpful although i dont understand why you need the relay as i didn't on the mk 6.5 but im still gonna use your guide don't fancy breaking her.
