#431056 125 Ecoboost 1.0 Gear Change Points.

Only done ~200 miles so far and not over ~3K rpm. I'll have to start ramping it up.

Its best practice to use the full rev range of a new engine, and to avoid labouring the engine.


#427583 Vibration In The Clutch Pedal...

I noticed this on mine too. I'm 1500 odd miles in now and it seems to have subsided. I also noticed the steering knocking and it feeling a bit notchy at full lock but again, this went after a few hundred miles.

First world problems eh

#329419 Your Experience In Buying A Brand New Fiesta

Posted by tfin25 on 05 February 2014 - 10:24 AM

I waited 3 months for my car . They ended up damaging one of the wheels getting it off the lorry and put back the hand over day a few more days .
I got sold Ford protect , I think that's an extra warranty on the car for 2 years but that was a waste of money ,they asked me if I wanted my car superguarded - to preserve my brand new paint, "it's a layer of protection" they said ...This , I found out on the day I got the car means a polish kit for £300 - ( who ever has been stung by the supaguard trick knows what I mean) to this day the super guard kit sits in a cupboard and I use Auto glym instead - bit like when u buy a pair of trainers and they try to sell you waterproof stain guard. Yes I fell for that trick ...
The car came with no foot mats and had 20 miles of petrol in the tank so on the day I got the car I had to buy some mats for £40 and fill it up at the first petrol station or run out on the way home or in traffic ... Annoying
Didn't have the chance to put mud flaps , spare alloy wheel in the boot or arm rest on whould have gone for them options if they were available
Car had no ash tray and still doesn't but that would have been a nice thought to ask me if I smoke , from what I work out the ashtray goes in the cup holders ?
Was looking at some amazing 13 plate fiestas on eBay and I think my next ford will be from there so I can avoid the salesmen that just care about making a sale and think that they are real business executives lol, they sold a fiesta to someone that wants a fiesta - simple case of supply and demand and that's how they charge people up . All this talk of availability and spec ect ... , I'm sure there is no way of not getting slightly robbed when u buy a car
U can't beat a brand new fresh ford though :)

 

They only pay about £30 for the diamond bright stuff, and flog it to the customer for £300. The options are where they make their money!
