In Topic: New Fiesta Mk7 Faults

It would be nice if all members gave good and sensible responses but

I totally agree mate,I asked you to list all the "quite serious faults " and you havent responded ,other than to ask for the thread to be closed.

members who always give good, sensible and constructive feedback to any other member who needs it

I think I fall into that category if you look at most of the replies I give to people who ask sensible balanced questions.

Given you have been a member of this board for less than 2 months ,you do seem to have granted yourself something of an air of authority in asking for threads to be closed and asking members who dare to refute your unfounded allegations not to make any more postings.

Again I will ask you to back up your statement "Ford should not be releasing cars with these types of faults, some of which were quite serious faults"

(Obviously this was written by my carer as I am incapable of thinking for myself as you point out above)

Hi Dave,
Do you work for Ford?

No I dont work for ford.

The exact wording is below

To begin with, your Ford warranty covers you for one year with unlimited mileage. From then on, Ford Protect will safeguard you for another two years or a total of up to 60,000 miles, whichever passes first. (Remember, the 60,000 mile limit includes the mileage you covered in your first year of ownership.)

So year one is Ford warranty
year 2 and 3 is Ford protect.

Ive just also found out you can extend Protect to 5 years /100k for 400 if you do it before your car is 12 months old.

Thanks for ALL the other replies to this problem but I don't see why I have to put my hand in my pocket to upgrade
speakers on my Titanium 1.6 TDI car! That's why I bought this model. I only found out afterwards that they only
fit basic speakers to it - which really is NOT my problem - And although they say it is Not covered under the warranty
watch this space ...... More info to follow..

Whatever made you think you get upgraded speakers in the titanium?
I dont want to dissapoint you any more mate but my titanum(and no doubt yours) has the same headlights as the basic ,the same seatbelts as the basic,the same speedo ,the same paint,the same thickness of body steel,the same bumpers.....need i go on!

Before you go rushing off making a fool of yourself regarding the warranty,I suggest you read it.

You DO NOT have a 3 year warranty.

You do have a one year full warranty with a 2 year complementary lesser warranty(apologies I do not have the exact wording to hand)

These are bundled together to look like a 3 year warranty to those who dont read the small print.

If your car is a grey import it has 1+1 warranty.


PS thanks to Antonyj for the third picture,I find it amazing just how many components are fitted inside a door,and the complexity of designing and assembling a small sub section like a door ,

In Topic: Upgrading 2007 Fiesta To Auto Lights - Anyone Done It?

30 August 2010 - 09:27 PM

Its quite a complex operation,to do it properly.
Firstly you need a new windscreen
Then a new rear view mirror with the light/dusk sensor built in,
Then you need to remove the inside roof and an A pillar to get the wiring in place,
then connect the wiring to the correct points
then replace the current headlight switch with the one with an extra icon for auto lights.

In other words ....dont bother unless you have a lot of time on tyour hands and spare cash to waste !

Its a lot easier and cheaper just to work the lights manually!
