  1. Ford Fiesta Ecoboost Titanium 5dr

    The engine did sound like a diesel so your explanation now makes complete sense. I am very annoyed about the 3k difference in mileage and to be offered only a full tank is insulting. How far could i realistically push that? The chips and scratches they said they would put right so that is a non issue. I am not so comfortable about driving around without a spare..old hat?? The salesman also said they do not have codes for the sound system anymore..is that true?
  2. Ford Fiesta Ecoboost Titanium 5dr

    Right fellas, I looked at the car today and although the car looks very nice, I have found some issues. I hope you can help me with them please? The car was delivered to the local dealer Monday. I saw it advertised at their other dealership for £8717 with 22669 mileage. However, when i checked the mileage today it was 26065. The salesman said they would fill the tank up, if i choose to purchase the car as a way of an apology for it being misrepresented. I told him i was insulted by their offer. I found a few small scratches and chips here and there which they said they would put right. I also found that there was no spare wheel. The salesman said cars do not come with spares any more and an emergency tyre gas repair kit was in the boot. Everything else seemed ok but when listening to the engine under the bonnet. I noticed that it seemed to be noisier than my 13year old Fiat Still 1.4. I recorded the engine but do know if can attach sound files to this forum?
