New Fiesta - Or Not

15 November 2015 - 04:50 PM

I own a Fiesta Ecoboost 100 Titanium, its 3rd anniversary is rapidly approaching do I buy a new one or keep this one. It is a great little car never caused any problems and I really like it but I realise that it has a newish engine with a turbo and expensive if it goes wrong when out of warranty. I have been driving for 40 odd years and during that time have wasted money on more than 38 cars ranging from a 911 Porsche, Twin Cam Escort and Frogeye Sprite but it has been fun. What do I do?

Fiesta Tech (Or Lack Of It)

I own a Titanium Ecoboost I can connect my phone but not a lot more. A new Fiesta is scheduled for 2017.

Look at the latest (whispering) Corsa. Internet Radio and One Star creates your own Hot Spot .I don't think I would ever buy a Corsa but Ford seem very slow in 'Up Teching' the Fiesta. What do you think?

Bumper Trouble

I've had a bit of an altercation with a post. The rear bumper has hairline cracks in the paint. Does anyone know if there is a product available to deal with this problem rather than have the bumper repainted?

Fiesta 7.5 Wonky Door.

I have a 7.5 Ecoboost. Some time ago the drivers door sounded like a bag of nails when shut. No satisfying 'clunk'.


I returned it to the supplying dealer who said it was a bodywork matter and they could not deal with it referring me to a Ford bodyshop in Penkridge Staffs. I complained to Ford HQ they said Penkridge is only 15 miles away and should not be a problem - the problem was that it is at least 20 miles away up the Car Park called theM6.


Anyway having removed the door card and found nothing I took the car to my local non-franchise garage. They removed the door card and the inner panel and discovered that the strengthening strut was not bonded to the outer skin of the door. Duly bonded in and hey presto nice quiet clunk.


It was worth paying to have this work done.
