In Topic: Buckled Alloy Wheels

30 June 2011 - 07:38 AM

Ford deny there is a problem, well I for one think they are lying, and I think its disgusting, but I guess as it isn't a life threatening problem they don't have to admit anything, and they just collect the sales they get through their customers having to buy replacement wheels. What they wont be getting out of me is the sale of another car.


Totally agree, watchdog rang me last year re this problem and asked me if i thought this could be a safety concern, told them i thought this would depend on how fast you were going when the wheel decided to buckle and how quick the tyre deflated as a result of the buckle, re your comment "life threatening" I just wonder how many accidents have happened as a result of these wheels buckling?....One thing is for sure the rate at which these wheels buckle is not normal, i have also had conversations with Ford Mechanics in the past who have said they change a large amount of these wheels for buckling !

Wow...let me know where ill have several for £1506.00....lol.....if we are talking Zetec, D.T.D have it for £14166, you have seen one more than me then, live in the portsmouth area and not seen one on the road yet

Hi, this http://www.evanshals...ar-mt11nup.html is the only one I can find now at 13540, still it's a good price.

If its true about the sales figures for this new Focus then it will not be long before you can get this brand new at this sort of price or very near it.!

Hi, this http://cgi.ebay.co.u...=Automobiles_UK is the cheapest pre-reg Focus Zetec I've found, so far, with only 250 miles on the clock, and there is more than one. Specs include, metallic paint and appearance pack, (17" alloys and privacy glass).

that was a quick price rise 12990 to 13790 and it has done another 3000 miles in 2 hours wow that is motoring some.........lol

Do you really need to replace your car yet?

Probably not but dont want to get into MOT's and the 3 year warranty expires
