    New Ecoboost Engine Vibration

    I have to say - there is quite a steep hill where I live, and my past two cars have hated going up it! I had to go down to first gear just so that they would crawl up (mostly because of the wide gearing & low speed with vigorous speed bumps and the obvious lack of power). The hill might not look as bad in the pic but trust me on this one ☺️ Before I bought my 1.0 125 EcoBoost I was looking at a 1.6 Petrol Focus, so on a test drive decided to take the Focus up the hill, was disappointed that I had to take it down to 1st gear.. The car just felt so slow! My Ecoboost will happily go up in 2nd and eagerly picks up speed Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

    New Ecoboost Engine Vibration

    I can imagine how much of an inconvenience that is. My first car was a 2008 Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 SXI Petrol which was underwhelming to say the least, then moved to a 1.3 Diesel corsa which was loud, and the turbo had an awful lag! The reason I chose a Ford Fiesta was for better build quality / soundproofing. After my move from the diesel to this, it was great. Then once you get used to the difference, you pick up on other things which Ford have called the quirky features of the ecoboost engine :-) Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

    New Ecoboost Engine Vibration

    Hi there, I bought a 1.0 EcoBoost 125 Fiesta back in November and drove it the long journey home from the dealership and all was well. Then I was driving to work with the windows open and I noticed a sort of ruff rattling sound, which sort of peaked at 3000 revs or when just over idle, took it to the local ford dealer, someone came out in the car with me and apparently it's characteristic of the 3cyl 1.0 ecoboost engine, they said that its definately not the smoothest engine they make. Hope this puts you at ease. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
