  1. Your Experience In Buying A Brand New Fiesta

    They did exactly that to mine, I was going to ring before collecting but took the gamble :( First job i did when i got home was adjust it to below the Bottom chrome line.

  3. Mk7 2010 Boot Opening On Its Own

    Common fault on the Fiesta, its either the boot locking mechanism or the boot opening latch. Ford replaced my boot opening latch on my 2013 Fiesta last week as every time you started the car the boot opened also I could only open the boot using the remote.

  7. Inside Of Windscreen Soaked

    wet carpets! check all your foot wells and spare wheel well for moisture and wetness
  8. All this talk about rejecting a car because your looking at a system that you should not be accessing. Don't go into the ford dealer quoting what etis says or does not say, just have patience your car will be as delivered as ordered and all this fuss will of been for nothing. Your taking the shine of the whole ordering and waiting period for your new Ford.

  10. Ford Sync - Step Backwards

    I've an iPhone 5 and today for the 1st time tried sending text messages via Ford Sync, another FAIL box ticked for Ford Sync Oh and another day where i've had to pull fuse 24 due to the damn thing freezing on auto indexing.
  11. Ford Sync - Step Backwards

    Exactly the same with mine, 'call hoome' and it works a treat!!! Strangely thou if you have a contact in your phone book which has 2 numbers listed under 1 contact name, sync is able to give clear understandable instructions asking if to call 'home or mobile'
  12. Ford Sync - Step Backwards

    The voice recognition is rubbish she can't even grasp 'call home' and the sync voice is robotic and not natural. My sync system fails often and either requires the fuse being pulled to allow the system to reboot or numerous USB pull out and plug in attempts. Yesterday i spent the first 10 miles of my journey getting distracted from driving due to sync giving error messages whilst trying to listen to music on my iPhone. There are numerous postings on this group that prove my problems are not unique.

  14. Sync Issue

    Mine freezes when it is 'Auto Indexing' and that &#33;Removed&#33; women with her so unnatural voice <_< grrrrrrrrr its like they have installed a system that is running from a processor taken from an Atari, Commodore or Spectrum computer!!
  15. Sync Issue

    Microsoft are the brains behind this Ford Sync crap, why why why did Ford team up with them, we now have systems installed in the Fiesta that are capable of recording data and can be downloaded and read by experts in the event of an accident You can guarantee every service the car goes in for there will be a Ford Sync update to be installed to iron out continuous niggles.
  16. Sync Issue

    Open Glove box and pull down towards floor.Behind glove box is a fuse box, fuse 24 (red 10amp) look at my attached blurry picture as the fuses are not numbered or look at your handbook diagram.Pull it out for several seconds and re-insertFord Shlt sorry I mean Sync will re-bootYour become familar with this procedure as it appears ford have gave us a device that is full of gremlins. I would not recommend taking it to a dealer its a simple 5 mins job. Dear Mr Ford Can we have the old Ford bluetooth system back it worked and was not broken!! Why on earth you teamed up with Microsoft i dont know.
  17. Zetec S Ecoboost 1.0

    From my own experience and I have a new ford every year you should expect to wait 8 - 12 weeks for a factory order, I always ask the dealer to assign my order to a car that is in the system and due to be built and is as close to the spec that I want. If you want a March 1st pick up you should order before Christmas or Straight after the Christmas shut down at the latest. My latest Fiesta was ordered 2nd January, Candy Blue and at least another 5 options, was built 29th January and in the dealership by the 23rd Feb.
  18. Zetec S Ecoboost 1.0

    My dealer kept me up to date with build date and delivery date and both dates Ford brought forward, it was not expected in dealers till the 28th Feb, so the phone call today was a pleasant surprise. Means I get to pick it up on March 1st :) :)
  19. Zetec S Ecoboost 1.0

    ordered mine on the 2nd Jan and it arrived at my dealer today.
  20. Ford Fiesta 2013 Titanium

    Chuffed to bits, picking car up on friday afternoon. As for the black spoiler at bottom of front bottom, I'm not sure, my Ford dealer called today to say it had arrived and emailed me the picture. I'm going to wait till next friday before seeing the car :) Car was £15940, inclusive of my options and pearlescent paint, it should of been £18240.

    Ford are really squeezing the deals that dealers are allowed to do on all new model Fords, your be lucky if you can manage to negotiate 10% off before taking into account the ford saving. The days of getting up to 25% off a new Ford are gone for ever.
