  1. Common problem on Mazda diesels but never seen that on a petrol. How truthful is the service history?
  2. Are the front tyres fitted the right way round? There should be an arrow saying rotation direction if they are asymmetric tyres.
  3. Sounds like the steering rack is bent.
  4. Get the full Ford service, I do and you get 1 year free AA cover bargain!
  5. Had my 1.6TDCi from new and no problems. If you drive less than 20K miles a year stick with petrol.
  6. 1K a month is 12K annually, petrol 1.4
  7. Dealer could deny all knowledge and say you or somebody else did the damage. Looks like some form of bodging has been done already.
  8. Sounds like a bunch of cowboys, the 3 month warranty is irrelevant, you are covered for 6 months for any faults that were present or developing from the date of sale. He should not be charging you for faults.
  9. Common problem and it looks like its been bodged before. Clean the old muck off and stick it down with Tiger Seal.
  10. Could be a DPF regeneration, take it for a good thrash on the motorway and check the oil level before you do.
  11. Depends where you take it, ring round for some quotes.
  12. If your a cash buyer the best time to buy is November/December or through a car broker. Anything else is what the manufacturer/dealer has to offer.
  13. Could be damp around the coil pack/plugs spray some WD40 on them and see if that cures it.
