      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.

    Focus 1.6l
  1. Hello all and a happy new year coming to you. I currently own a Focus 1.6l and have done for 4 years with 45k of trouble free motoring. I have been left some cash (inheritance) and desperately need to get an estate to carry all the new baby stuff I will need in February when my second child is due. I have been researching the diesels but keep being hit by the DMF failure rate of new diesels. Here are my requirements/facts 1. I have 6k to spend 2. I travel 15k miles a year mainly on A roads and motorways 3. I have a 5 year old and a new baby coming in Feb. 4. I run my own business so I need boot space to buy/carry stock. Any advice would be most welcome and greatly appreciated. Is dmf failure likely? Is a petrol a safer bet? I have found several focus 1.8 zetec estates 57 plate with 40k on the clock for £5500-£6k what do you think????
