In Topic: New Fiesta, Underpowered?

25 October 2013 - 08:55 PM

I only travel about 8 miles a day to work aqnd back and around the doors on my day off. We go to the lake district about 4 times a year and even that is only 100 miles each way so a diesel wouldnt be any good for me.

I had my car looked at by Ford Service yesterday just to clear my mind that the car was ok and as I thought they said there is nothing wrong with it and it really just needs running in. I must admit the longer I have had the car the better it is performing and that coming down from a 1.6 to a 1.25 takes some getting used to where the gears are concerned.

I really like the car,it's comfortable and is driving better and it looks great.

The bit I have quoted above just reminded me...

 

In the past I have been given various things by salesman on the day I picked up a new car. Flowers, a free professional photoshoot (oddly), manufacturer merchandice, etc. My parents got a framed painting for buying a nissan a few years ago. When I picked up this Fiesta I was given a 500ml bottle of screenwash... I think it would have looked better to just hand out nothing tbh! Better to not try at all than look cheap!

Before I signed the form to say i would say i was completly satisfied I asked the salesman for some new car mats, he then went and got me some otherwise I would have got nothing.

The salesman was good with me but the young over confident young manager that came across was a bit cocky. I just found it odd that I was told to sign a paper that said I would tick completley satisfied,even before I had even seeen my new car. The salesman has phoned me twice and he knows the car is going in for a check on Thursday and he also knows the problems I have going up hills. There is a hill not far from where I live and he said he knows it well, I tried to drive up it and got abour 2/3rds up and had to stop,turn around and find another way back home. I will wait and see if he contacts me again after Thursday and see if he mentions the survey, there isn't a lot he can do but it's worth waiting to find out.

Hi FOCA, that's good info to know and I only wish I had read that somewhere before I purchased it, and is it posted anywhere else thats easy to find?

Saying that, I am not a car person and I know naff all about them. I did do my homework as far as I could by going to various good websites such as Whatcar.com and they all give the Fiesta's top marks and that's where people like me who know little about cars go to for advice.
