      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.

    Smax 2.5 Titanium
  1. smax official trouble topic

    Hello Hope you can help me. I bought a 2.5 Smax titanium 56 plate in December 2007 from new. It instantly developed electrical faults including, controls on steering wheel not working, external temp sensor not working, windscreen blades not working, washer bottle leaking. took the car back to dealership who could not find any faults on computor. Took back several times and no faults could be detected and so therefore faults not fixed. took the car to dealership for MOT in December and it passed no problems. March this yr the car suddenly had a complete power failure whilst driving along. It was recovered to the dealership where an electrical problem was diagnosed by the recovery driver. However the dealership are saying the vehicle has no oil in it but cannot see a oil leak? The have taken the sump of the engine and diagnosed new engine, new turbo, new gasket etc £9188 cost. As the car has only just come out of warranty and has done 38k miles I refuse to beleive that I am responsible for these costs? Has anybody experienced this kind of complete failure? I would be really grateful for any reponses ? Many thanks Rosie
