In Topic: Extended Warranty

Today, 02:07 PM

Hi supersneak


Just been onto my dealer again and they say that the rules were changed about 18 months ago but I find that hard to believe especially as you were allowed to buy extended warranty in March 2014, 2 days before the anniversary of your Fiesta's first registration.


My dealer says that they called Ford to check on this and they were told about 18 months ago.  I have my doubts and would like to see some documentation on this.


Do you have any idea of exactly when Ford changed the timescale for buying the extended warranty.

Hi supersneak


I'm having a similar problem with trying to purchase the 4th & 5th years extended warranty on my November 2013 Titanium.


After seeing the extended warranty topic posted over the last couple of weeks I approached my dealer to ask if I could purchase it and I was told the same as you were but my car was two weeks off it first registration date of 25th November 2013.


What month in 2013 was your car registered? 


Their answer was no and that the rules changed about 6 months ago and you now have to buy it with the vehicle when it is first registered.


Like you, it was always my intention to purchased an extended warranty before it reached the date of it's first registration and, I was really annoyed about this and stated that when I took delivery of the car last November, the salesperson never mentioned anything about buying the extended warranty nor did my dealer, or Ford, contact me to say that the rules were changing and give me the opportunity to extend my warranty before they changed the rules.


As stated above, I was not aware of the change in rules and thought that, by contacting my dealer before my car reached the date of it's first registration, I would be ok to buy the 4th & 5th years but no, that's not the case.


I know it's a bit late now but I did try to buy the warranty before the year was up and I'm wondering if I should call that number (Ford 08702 241 6726) to see if they would allow me to buy it?


BTW, to take advantage of the 2nd and 3rd years free warranty, you need to have your vehicle serviced each year but, bearing in mind that, as YOU are buying the 4th and 5th years, are there any restrictions on those two years?  i.e.  you must have it serviced by Ford or, can you go where you want for the service?

In Topic: Titanium Or Titanium X?

Ah, ok then.  I understand now; it was only the Titanium X, and not the Titanium, that came with the chrome trim fitted to the lower grille?


I must admit that the TX front with chrome trim on the lower grille and the gloss fog lamp surrounds does look better than the T front without.


BTW, was the lower grille on the TX also gloss finish instead of matt?

I've never seen a Fiesta Mk7/7.5 with chrome trim on the bottom grille?  Generally the Mk7/7.5 Fiesta Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X have the same exterior trim and my Titanium does not have chrome trim fitted to the bottom grille and that was built in late November 2013.

In Topic: Fiesta MK7 Mobile Navigation

20 November 2014 - 10:37 PM



I'm thinking of buying a new 2014/15 Fiesta Titanium X with an upgrade to the Sony DAB unit with built-in satnav but, I've just been reading through this thread which dates back to 2009 and would like to know if the "Ford Mobile Navigation" mentioned in the thread is 'old' technology and if so, when was it phased out?


Was Ford Mobile Navigation an option on earlier Fiesta's and did it come as standard on higher models and, if so, which models?
