  1. Does anybody know if the mk4 will come in Hybrid form in the future? I recently bought a 2016 Mazda 3 as my 2015 Focus had to be written off πŸ˜”. I would like to go back to Ford in a couple of years time.
  2. 😁. Depends on the situation in hand. I hate driving in stop and go traffic especially in cities and towns, and driving long boring motorway journeys. But driving on free Countryside roads I actually prefer to drive and control the car myself.
  3. But that's where having adaptive cruise control comes in. It does the braking for you 😁
  4. Pfft Blind spot monitoring who needs that, Just look around you, use your mirrors and common sense πŸ˜‚
  5. Does Independent rear supension really make a difference on lower powered cars? Many car makers no longer long offer it. Look at Mazda Vauxhall & VW. It gave Ford an excuse to do it I suppose.
  6. That is lousy by Ford alright. This is what happens when you give the Accountants to much power ha.
  7. Fair enough. I'm hoping due to the lower weight of the mk4 the 1 litre EcoBoost will suffice. Dissapointed that the multi link rear suspension is not there on the lower sized engines though.
  8. That's not bad. I'm probably going to upgrade to the mk4 Focus next year. I'm likely to get the 1 litre EcoBoost but I have gotten so used to diesel mpg, so I don't know ha.
  9. Ah sure who needs a new Focus when your car can do this🀣. It might of been over reading slightly ha.
  10. The two things I miss from my old mk2.5 Focus is interior room and a decent sized boot.
  11. Yeah I find the facelifted interior of the mk2 is nicer than the awful interior on the mk3/mk3.5, ie no protruding dash that takes up nearly half the the interior space of the car. The mk2.5 has just a nicer interior in my opinion in all comparable specs.
  12. Its probably not worth doing then so. Thanks for the info!
  13. The glass screen on my fuel gauge is cracked. Is the glass piece easy to replace or would I have to get a new fuel gauge? It's more a cosmetic thing but its annoying to look at ha. The crack has gotten bigger and there are splinters coming from the crack not shown in the picture. Is it worth even replacing?
