      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.

  1. Buying A Ka

    Hello all, is there a buyers guide on here? Going to look at a 53 plate Ka collection 1.3 this evening for the girlfriend, but not really sure what to look for. What is the cambelt change frequency on these cars (10 year or 100,000 mile?), and what sort of problems are these cars prone to? Thanks in advance for any advice!
  2. Newbie Question

    Cheers Lenny. Car has apparantly only done 30,000 miles so hoping it'll be in good condition. How much would it roughly cost to sort the head gasket before it actually goes?
  3. Newbie Question

    Hello people, just a quick question. Going to view a mark 4 (S plate) Fiesta 1.4 Ghia X this evening for the girlfriend. Have looked at the site, and couldn't find a buyers guide. Don't really have a clue about Fords as am VW man myself, but what sort of things should I look out for when viewing and test driving it? Are there any problems this model is prone to? Any help and advice would be much appreciated!
