Serious Paranoia With My Fiesta Metal

09 September 2012 - 08:09 AM

Hi everyone ive had my 2012 Fiesta Metal From Brand New since end of May/June This Year, I am quite the paranoid type in general anyway.

Regarding my Fiesta its getting rather serious, ive bought it on ford options (my first ford as changed from a VAG) i use the car mainly for work as i drive from my home in essex - NE London to Borehamwood, Herts where i work which takes me just short of a 40 mile round trip.

I never turn the car on and just drive have, i always let the revs drop especially as i work nights and finish 6am. Have used normal BP unleaded from new and have currently got 2,800 miles on the clock with no thrashing at all.

It took me from 0-800 miles before i even took it past 70mph and around 1500-2000miles past 100mph never wheel spinned or even seen the traction light on keep the gear changes around 2-2.5k rpm and occasionally when merging onto a roads and motorways take it up to 3-3.5k revs in 4th gear to get up to speed etc.

the noise from the engine is horrid on idle and i have owned a 2009 corsa 1.4sxi which was pretty bad due their natural characteristics with noisy tappets. But my fiesta is a joke and not to mention, theres some sort of knocking type sound after i have been drive and just left on idle for example today in the morning when getting home from work. then it sort of just stops after a while when left running.

Could Someone please shed some light on me and clear my paranoia as im starting to not like the car considering i dont abuse it at all.

thanks and kind regards

Please Someone Enlighten Me With Tyre Pressure Figures

10 July 2012 - 05:29 PM

hi everyone ive tried a little search on here with not much luck, i have a 2012 fiesta metal with the standard black 17's and factory fitted bridgestone potenza's on. the chart on the passenger side showing the air pressure for tyres is the most confusing ive ever seen. dont see anything hinting the slightest of PSI or even Bar value's. i call up the dealer service department and they turn round and say ye mate its your door entry just have a look there. 'as if i didnt know already'

could someone just tell me what the front an rear pressure's should be. thank you in advance to whoever replies.

kind regards
