Fiesta Titanium 125Ps Noise Issue

21 September 2013 - 04:36 PM

I have been the proud owner of a 125PS Ford Fiesta (2013 model), Titanium since about March this year. However in the past 4-6 weeks I have noticed a noise that occurs when first starting the engine from cold, it seems to kick in after about 4/5 seconds of starting the car and the noise itself lasts 4/5 seconds long. It makes no difference if I leave the car in neutral or drive off straight away, the noise still occurs. The best way I can describe the noise is a squeaking/rubber rubbing noise. I have attached a link to a sound clip of the noise, I am reversing the vehicle in the clip but if you listen out right at the start of the sound clip there is a distinct noise that is not the same as the reversing noise. The noise itself seems to be coming from the central region of the vehicle but it is hard to tell if its something under the bonett or something behind the central console.

 

I have booked my car to be looked at on Wednesday but the noise does seem to be getting slightly louder as the weeks go on. I am curious to know if anyone knows what this might be or if anyone has experienced something similar.

Ford Fiesta 2013 Car Seat Covers

25 August 2013 - 06:57 PM

Hi, I am after getting some car seat covers for my new 2013 Ford Fiesta Titanium, just wondering if anyone has bought any decent quality ones that fit well and don't cost the earth? Also do Ford do official ones, I couldn't seem to find any on their website?

 

 

Thanks in advance!


Drivers Seat Noise

27 July 2013 - 10:44 PM

Hi I have noticed an occasional noise coming from the drivers seat, I think it is when I move about in the seat and I place pressure on the posture support built into the divers chair (Fiesta 2013 Titanium). It seems to create a kind of knocking noise, I just wanted to check if anyone else is experiencing this?

 

Thanks


Deflation Detection System - Help!

10 July 2013 - 09:31 PM

Hi I have just received my brand new Ford Fiesta 1.0 125bhp Titanium, which I ordered with the deflation detection system. However I have been playing around with the car tonight and noticed there is an option in the menu system labelled 'deflation detection system', when I select this option I am presented with a message (I can't remember exactly what it says), which requested me to hold down the OK button. After holding the OK button for about 5 seconds an error message appears saying 'tyre pressure not stored'.

 

I have searched the forums and can see there have already been a few people experiencing problems with the deflation detection system, but it seems that most are complaining that the option is not available in the menu system.

 

Does anybody know how to rectify the issue I am experiencing? Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated!

 

 

Thanks in advance


1.0 Ecoboost 123Ps Or 100Ps

17 May 2013 - 10:22 PM

Hi,

 

I am looking at purchasing a brand new Ford Fiesta Titanium in the next couple of weeks but I am really unsure on what engine size to go for - 123PS or 99PS. I do a lot of driving about town and not a lot of motorway driving at the moment, however this could change in the near future.

 

Please could someone explain the suitability of both engines, i.e. what are the benefits, drawbacks and what type of drivers are they best suited to?

 

Also are there two variants of the ecobost engine, in terms of turbo charged and non-turbo charged, I am slightly confused!?

 

 

Thanks very much in advance!
