I just had a courtesy car for 2 days while my Metal was being looked at. It's much more fun than my Metal :(

100bhp version...


In Topic: Suspension Clunking On My New Metal

11 July 2013 - 06:56 PM

Third time in the garage, still no answers.... first they said it was the low profile tyres, then they said it was a stone they found in the rear valence ! Now they just admit defeat.....

Their suggestion is that I take their workshop foreman to demonstrate the clunk going over a sunken manhole cover. It's ony about 20 mm down. ...

Ford let me have a courtesy car and that doesn't do it.... it was a 1.0 Econotec and boy does it shift AND it sounds like my old Supra TT, being 3 cylinders. Seems much faster/livelier than my Metal and it revs to 6500 and has much longer gears- around 28mph/1000 in top. Very nice.

Good read, thanks... I'll try the suggestions. Wonder if my dealer will point this out to me. If it's in the manual, it must be a recognised issue. Maybe he thought he would lose a sale if he told me....
