Lookong At Getting A C Max

21 April 2013 - 08:24 AM

Hi all.

At the moment I have a focus estate but I'm looking at getting a c max.

I have had a similar car in the past and really miss the ride hight and other things.

Looking at the 1.8 tdci is there anything I should be looking out for or is this a very reliable engine and car.

Thanks simon

Wheel Nuts

09 April 2013 - 04:56 PM

Hi all.
I have some wheel nut covers on my car and I have tried everything to get them of but no joy.
Just thought I would try just incase I get a flat.
I also have 4 that don't which isn't a problem.
How can I get them of or are there supposed to stay on if so that's strange as there are 19mm and the ones that don't have the covers on are 18mm.
Thanks simon

First time I have had to use the car in really bad snow and I wasn't impressed.
I have had a few cars and all have been ok to poor in the snow but this one seems to take the biscuit.
Had to result in using the snow socks which I must say are worth there weight in gold. My car was totally stuck no chance of getting out and at 5.15 in the morning I was by myself. Well put them on which took a while but managed it and was out on the first attempt.
The question I was going to ask is that I have a set of decent Dunlop tyres on with loads of grip but they don't help at all yet on my previous cars I went for the mid to budget tyres which to me seemed alot better in the snow.
Now would you guys say it s more down to tyres budget being better in this case or do you guys have the same problem with focus being very very poor in the snow no matter what tyres you have on.
