FOCUS 1.8LX 2004

08 October 2008 - 01:56 PM

Hi guys new to the forum recently bought a ford focus 1.8lx 2004 plate with full main dealer service history only done 60K.

After a week the fuel guage is playing up and is constantly shown the petrol tank to be full or even exceeding the full amount. The other thing I noticed is that on revving the engine, the rev counter dial tends to get stuck, although the engine sounds fine.

On closer inspection the the digital dash has two scratched on the clear window on the inside leading me to believe that the digital instrument dash at some point has been either fiddled or changed.

Lastly the car has had two different owners from new in two completely different locations/towns, but the service history is all from one main dealer garage.

Now this may be coincidnece but why take your car so far to get it serviced from that particualr dealer.
Now on contacting the main dealer they have no recollection of the car ever been to them.

I brought the car private is there anything I can do, I think the history is all forged but all stamped up to date and looks very genuine.

Thanks guys
