Advice on ecoboost

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm looking at getting a Fiesta 1 litre ecoboost and I just wanted some comments on the reliability of this engine. Obviously I have seen the coolant problems which effected ecoboost early on but has anyone had any recent problems? Anything I should avoid when looking at these cars (any common faults etc)? I do around 12000 miles a year and it's a mixture of town and motorway. 

Thanks in advance

Isaac

Hi Isaac,

Lots of threads on here in both Fiesta and Focus forums including the coolant issues which you've obviously seen. Not aware so far of anything that has carried through to the Mk 8 Fiesta - mine is just coming up to 12 months with no engine related problems.

Im currently on my 4th Fiesta and my 3rd Ecoboost and all have been 100% reliable - my latest is Mk8 ST Line 125, its a joy to drive ! If you happen to go down the satnav route, make sure its the current version!
