Hi,

welcome to the forum,

the only costly service task around 70k is the DPF fluid needs topping up and by costly i mean it costs around 200euro extra on the service of the car, theirs not really much difference in mileage on the cars either mate,

ive got a 2010 1.6TDCi with 57,000km on the clock now, and its going great, due it's third service now so im getting ready for the costly eloys fluid to need topping up,

if i was you id go for the titanium spec model because it has alot more features installed,

also if you have the reg, log on to ford etis and it will display the full spec of the ford along with any outstanding recalls or service jobs if applicable on the specific vehicle

Whenever I tried this, you need the VIN not the reg ??
