The beige stuff is normal, its a kind of sealant. The wer boot floor is a common problem and can be a nightmare to locate. I had a swimming pool where my spare wheel went... And it all stemmed from a pin hole under one of the rubber roof gutters !!! But others report the same from round the hinge that holds the tailgate on.

The twitchy feeling is normal in any car if you are touching two different surfaces. And you will feel it more if running low profile tyres. As far as the voice controls, I think the way your having to input the information is the only way you can do it... may be corrected, but I've had to do this on mine. I guess the general idea is MOST people would only want a few contacts to be used on voice dial. IE, regularly dialled numbers.

Soggy brakes is air in the system, just give them a bleed and top up after, will sort it and make the pedal nice and firm.


This is not always the cure. It would obviously be the first port of call. But in my case, the system was bled, problem still there, then it was pressure bled at a garage, still the same. Then ford diagnosed the ABS control module, replaced it, pressure bled it again and its been fine ever since....

Had this on mine on the test drive, garage said they would sort it before I picked it up. Few days later after their mechanics were left scratching their heads it ended up in fords. Turned out to be the ABS unit, apparently its quite a common problem ? But it cost the garage nearly £300 to put right... but did solve the problem.

Does it on mine to, but its nothing to do with DPF regeneration, as mine doesn't have one.
