my black edition Fiesta only has 2300 miles on the clock ( haven't even driven it hard yet ) and the turbo has failed .

on another post I had made I spoke about a rattle coming from the actuator and the response from ford saying its ok and no action required.

but the first time a go to drive it the next morning..... I have fek all power and this is the result .

Well FORD so much for no action required eh!? .

Have been trying to get in touch with ford but no success .

Not good and yes it will be interesting to hear the details of the problem/cause here too. Our previous ZS 125 was fine over 8500 miles. Used to let it tickover for at least 30secs on very rare (!) hot sunny days after a 'hot' run but apart from that did nothing special apart from an 'Italian' road test ie up to 5000-6000 revs through the gears two/three times a week or so. (Appreciate you are running yours in so to speak).Think I am right in saying turbo is made by 'Continental'? so would perceive of decent quality. Wonder if the low mileage has any bearing on it? I was always brought up being told by an engineer friend that cars work best used every day and at a reasonable pace when working at full working temps/pressures. "does it no harm to cane it every now and again, best thing for it" etc. Anyway sorry I digress too much. Main thing now is how good dealer and Ford are? Will they/are they able expedite a quick efficient repair? Hopefully it was just an isolated 'faulty' unit?

Our 4 year old Renault Kangoo diesel vans have around 100,000 - 200,000 very hard, short trip miles on them, thrashed hard daily, not a single engine, gearbox or turbo problem between the 12.

maltozo  you are right and I agree giving it the berries now and then is good for all engines .I ran a service/work shop for a main motorcycle franchise and as far as bike engines are concerned it does them good.

as for the mileage it gets used every day but the car is only a couple of months old.

the dealer I use is very good ive been using them for a number of years and so far so good keeping me informed and a courtesy car at no cost .

as for ford haven't had any pobs so far with warranty so fingers crossed.
