  1. It's usually 2 presses and then press and hold for global closing of windows. Provide your car supports that function
  2. A lot of mobility cars are used by disabled people who work. So not always low mileage. To encourage people to look after their mobility cars. There is a refund at the end of the lease. Providing the car/van has be well looked after cosmetically. From September this year the refund has gone up from £250 to £500.
  3. Have to agree with Stoney's comments re the heko's though I no longer smoke
  4. 2018 Focus vehicles will only have one horn installed, and the sound will be different than past models. Try this video see if it helps re windows Electric&sync=sync3
  5. I had read somewhere that placing your keys in a metal box and as far away from the car as possible. May help block this happening. How true this is, IDK. But a visual deterrent like streeing wheel lock, might just make thief's move onto to easier pickings.
  6. Just stumbled upon this article. On The Autocar web site Diesel-saving' technology could make it to market in two years A simple, affordable and apparently foolproof solution to the problem that has led to the current worldwide ‘demonisation’ of diesel engines — emissions of life-limiting NOx — has been discovered by a team of British automotive research specialists at Loughborough University. The system, called ACCT (ammonia creation and conversion technology), has reached such a promising stage that the creators are being besieged by car manufacturers, component suppliers and even owners of large diesel fleets that have heard about the innovation and are desperate to use it to solve what they see as motoring’s most urgent problem. Read more on this by following the link. Makes for an interesting read.
  7. I have Titanium 16 plate. It runs on rails. It's perfect in fact regarding the steering. I think there is a setting within the driving section that allows some refining of the steering. Have a look through the main screen menu.
  8. As already said. Only the Tit x have the function to change colour in ambient lighting. My 2016 Tit only has the single Red colour.
  9. I have just noticed my 16 plate tit focus starting to do the same thing. I will wait until service is due to get it fixed. Not that much of an issue for me at this time.
  10. It is fair to say that diesel engines take longer to reach optimal engine temps during the winter months. Watch how long it takes the temp gauge to reach use position compared with summer use. I know my MPG suffers during the autumn winter period. From the AA Fuel facts To help drivers understand better the impact of winter driving on their fuel bills, the AA Fuel for Thought campaign offers the following facts: The heated rear window uses around two per cent extra fuel. If both the front and rear heated screens are used the increase in fuel consumption equates to six per cent as heated front screens consume more power than the rear screen. Even at a relatively mild outside temperature of +10C, a car's fuel consumption for the first mile will be around 40 per cent higher than with a warmed-up engine. This falls to around 16 per cent over the next three miles and, even up to 6.5 miles from start-up, fuel consumption can be 8 per cent higher. The increase in fuel consumption due to cold weather is similar for both diesel and petrol cars. AA tests show extra fuel use after 1 mile and 3 miles respectively are: typical small petrol car – 34% and 17% medium petrol car – 38% and 16% small diesel car – 32% and 12% medium diesel car – 43% and 18% For demisting windows and getting the cabin comfortable, basic air conditioning on a small car can increase fuel consumption by up to 10 per cent. A more powerful petrol engine will suffer less, as will a larger diesel. Getting stuck in a traffic jam is another daily problem with winter driving. Even with a warmed-up engine, a petrol car can lose at least two-thirds to three-quarters of a litre of fuel every hour, or 1.2 to 1.4p a minute. A diesel car can lose a third to half a litre of fuel an hour, or 0.6 to 1.0p a minute.
  11. I have Team Heko fitted to my 3.5 And they look good
  12. Get an OBD program and plug it in to your OBD port. Be aware!!! if your not competent get a profession to look at it.
  13. Try using silicon based products for your rubber seals. I use auto glym. Vinyl and rubber My 3.5 is 18 moths old and there is not a mark on the seals.
  14. I have had my MK 3.5 Focus 1.5 TDCI 18 months now from new. I can not fault the car thus far. Checked Etis and there is no recall for my car as of today.
