      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    s max 2.0 tdci
  1. Non Start

    Hi, I bought a 2.0 tdci s max april 08, which was 1 year old. faults so far; interior lamp had a mind of it's own, came on after car was stared, didn't work when door unlocked. 3 attempts at dealer now fixed. climate controls faulty, unable to adjust on drivers side, 5 visits now seems fixed. front heated screen failed on driver's side [since previous visit] now fixed. seat belt bonger goes when driving, 5 attempts, now seems O.k. fingers crossed. non start, engine turns over, not firing up, this was intermittent, now happens every day [leave for 5mins then starts first time] I have contacted Ford directly about these faults, who have told me that I am not allowed to take it to another dealer even though the local dealer can't fix it. Only 1 month left on warranty. This local dealer [stroud glos] never has a loan car suitable and never ring to say it is ready. this is as well as being overcharged for a service which was quoted by them. THE FORD DEALERS ARE APPALLING. ANYONE WITH ANY IDEAS TO FIX THE NON START ARE WELCOME.
