Hey Sarc

Firstly, thanks for the review! I was using google to find Fiesta reviews and yours did come up. Your review really helped and your the reason I'm on this forum. I didn't know this forum existed without your review :)
Cheers




Cheers Rogue_Shadow - appreciate your comments, and glad the review helped. :) (It'a also good to know that Google can find the review independently).

Cheers,

Sarc.

No problem - I quite understand. Just thought I'd done something wrong! :unsure: :D

In Topic: OMG, ITS FINALLY HERE!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

That's brilliant news ... you must be over the moon.

Mine took about ten weeks to arrive, though it was initially meant for the dealership themselves to use as a display model/demonstrator, and they allowed me to have it instead, (saved a few extra weeks of waiting). No problems with it at all, and the whole ordering/delivery process went perfectly well.

Happy motoring. :)

In Topic: Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.4 REVIEW

08 January 2010 - 10:55 AM

Just a quick update on my car. I did the original review when I first bought it, in October 2009. I have now driven it for many hundreds of miles and still think it's a lovely car. It has also coped admirably in the recent freezing weather - the heating system and QuickClear windscreen work a treat. Can't wait for the warmer weather though - then we can get out a bit more and start to enjoy the driving experience again. :)

In Topic: The Washer Bottle

08 January 2010 - 10:48 AM

I agree - the positioning seems a bit weird. Though I think the recent night-time temperatures would freeze it no matter where it's positioned. Personally, I use quite a strong mixture of washer bottle screenwash which has helped to prevent the actual water bottle from freezing, (even at -16c). The main problem I find is at the washer jets on the bonnet which always seem to freeze up. It sometimes helps to spray the jets with window de-icer first which may help to get them going, (making sure to immediately wipe up any exces spray from the paintwork of course). Though I've also been known to spray a tin of de-icer out of the driver's side window every now and then, to try to clean the windscreen when the jets don't work, (not when I'm moving, I hasten to add ... only when I'm at a junction or stuck in traffic etc.)

My main problem lately is actually getting the car doors open in the first place. I'm paranoid that I'll damage the rubber around the doors if I try to force them open. Again, the trusty old de-icer comes in handy - spraying it all around the door seals and allowing it to seep in for a few moments.

Roll on the spring-time!!! :blink:
