      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. Hi All, I have been looking at a Ford Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost on Autotrader, 63 plate at Ace Car Sales, Bury. Lancs. It's on at £4795 with 109k miles. Always had Focus's before but was thinking of this one. Is there anything I should be looking closely at? Obviously the mileage is an item but the dealer reckons 150k miles before a belt change? The mileage has been mostly motorway and there is a good service history. I only do about 7000 a year, so if I keep it a while that may help. Any comments greatly appreciated. Cheers.
  2. Hi All, I purchased a 2011 Focus Sport Zetec 1.6TDCi (not new shape) about 3 mnths ago. This is the model with the blue display for the radio/cd, sat nav & bluetooth etc. Been great so far, just a niggling couple of items recently - the clock keeps going back to 20/02/11!! With the ignition on &/or engine running its possible to reset the clock to the correct present date & time but when switching off it goes back to the 20/02/11 date and the rev counter sticks on 1000 revs & the fuel gauge stays on whatever level you have instead of going back to zero!!! Never had this with any previous Focus, it is first registered 10/03/11, wonder if that Feb date was when it was set up / fitted originally? Could this be an ECU problem? HELP PLEASE! Many thanks. Ian
