In Topic: 2013 Fiesta Powershift Problems

05 July 2015 - 08:59 PM

Are the newer powershift transmissions any better? I've read a huge amount of negative comments about the earlier powershift cars - in America people have even filed a lawsuit against Ford for cars not being fit for purpose.

 

I've been looking for an automatic for a while as I have trouble with my knee. I've had both a Fiesta and Focus so I know they're good cars, but I simply cannot entertain the idea of buying a car which is going to be unreliable or have problems. 


In Topic: Only 27Mpg From 1.6 125 Mk3 ? Something Wrong?

The trip computer on mine always stayed at 43mpg but it would only go 350 miles on a tankful. I don't know what that figure comes to, but 350 miles from 55 litres can't be 43mpg.

Tbh I quite like the Cee'd.
It has quite a lot of toys even on the basic models.

 

Oh yeah, me too. I wasn't meaning it in a negative way. I've looked at a new Cee'd myself - lovely interiors in them on the higher-spec models with the gloss black inserts.

The nose is too long now.
It looks like the result of cross-breeding a Kia Cee'd and a Peugeot 408.

 

There is definitely more than a hint of Cee'd in the new Focus.

Still no brochures available from Ford  :rolleyes: they've known for a long time when they'd launch the car and they still couldn't organise it properly!
