  1. Dry braking distances are about the same as the previous set of tyres I had and I haven't noticed any understeering at all.
  2. I bought a set of Uniroyal Rainsport 5s and I'm really pleased with them. I've now done over 1000 miles on them. They are very good in the dry, absolutely magic in the wet and a lot quieter that the original tyres fitted by Ford. Another good thing is that I'm getting an extra 30 miles to a tank full of petrol.
  3. Check your tyre pressures.
  4. That particular model had a lot of trouble with the coil packs. I know; I had one.
  5. I had a similar problem on a previous car and it turned out to be the clutch slave cylinder.
  6. Don't rely on the sealant as it doesn't always work. Personally, I wouldn't give it room in the boot.
  7. Depends on how you drive and if you need to trust your tyres. There are two things I will not stint on on a car and they are tyres and brakes. Your life depends on them. A few days ago my tyres were 6 years old. They had only done 22,000 miles but I don't like having tyres over 5 years old. (Comes of being an ex copper and some of the sights I've seen.) I bought a new set of Uniroyal Rainsport 5s and feel a lot more comfortable driving now. How comfortable do you feel driving on a tyre with that description?
  8. I'd be inclined to have a word with the local council to see if you can get some of the cost back.
  9. I had this problem and it was caused by having my car washed by a local firm who put wax in the wash water. After I cleaned the wax of the windscreen the wipers were fine.
  10. I've got a Fiesta with a double clutch gearbox which has a sport mode. We have several inches of snow here now so does anyone know if the car can be started in second gear?
  11. Don't rely on a Faraday Pouch. I had two fail.
  12. Mine certainly won't be driven away as it has a Ghost II immobiliser fitted. It's always left with its wheels on full lock.
  13. According to the DVLA, Fiesta thefts rose by 53% last year and the car remains the most stolen in Britain. 5979 Fiestas stolen last year. I can guarantee that mine wont be stolen.
  14. I've had this happen with a Fiesta in the past and it turned out to be the clutch slave cylinder.
  15. Old fashioned or not, If I stop the car it goes into neutral.
