    Ok. Good luck.

    Take it back to where you bought it from and go through the issues with the seller/dealer?

    Coolant Leak

    I would take it to a garage and see what they say.

    Fiesta Mk8 Satnav GPS issues / fault

    Yes, quite possibly. Maybe that is what the dealership meant when they said there will probably be an upgraded mk8 model by time I am due my new car in 10 to 12 months... Don't think there will be too much of an overall change but maybe they are already ironing out and tweaking issues on the current mk8s. I can only guess if a customer ordered a fiesta now, the satnav issue will have already been bottomed on it either by software or hardware changes.

    Fiesta Mk8 Satnav GPS issues / fault

    No issues with day/night switchover issues, certainly no flickering. As for GPS issues we were informed (detailed in the thread) that the problems were across the Sync 3 range. This was from the Fiesta to the RS. The new car sales manager who dealt with us had a Focus and he had exactly the same issue, so luckily thoroughly understood what we were experiencing. Again as said previously he has just moved into one of the latest models of the focus and the issue is not there any longer, hopefully bottoming GPS loss on he new ranges.

    Fiesta Mk8 Satnav GPS issues / fault

    Yes they would have the on going issues but I reckon they will sell them with known sat nav issues at a reduced price. They would disclose to avoid potential comeback and further claims....

    Wheel upgrades

    Never seen them before. Each to their own but definitely not my cuppa.

    MK8 Headlight problem

    You will be lucky if they still have the old ones. They will more than likely have been disposed of.

    Fiesta Mk8 Satnav GPS issues / fault

    No, according to the manager who has been dealing with our issue they are taking vehicles back and refunding. They have no real choice in the matter if the car doesn't do what it has been sold to a customer to do. Pretty sure we initially had the option as the issue had been reported within the first few months of having the car. As he put it across to the Mrs we did well to get what we did as it is ultimately Ford who are footing the bill although the dealership are heavily involved. Compensatory "packages" are no longer being offers he has hinted, it is either return the car or put up with it. I think the option to return for full refunds will get Ford out of compensation claims via the Ombudsman. The manager did say he has moved to the new focus and the issue has NOT cropped up in these so hopefully the newer models will have any issues ironed out. It suits us now how it has panned out and is in our favour, so I guess that is it until we change the Mrs car, potentially in 2 years time.

    Is that the sort of thing that was on cars in the late 80s and early 90s? The sort that goes along the top of the windscreen, which had names on like Dave on the drivers side and sue on the passenger side? Makes me feel old, it has been years since I saw those. Sorry I can't help with a constructive suggestion but it was good to have the memory jogged.

    2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    Argue the point that it is mechanical.... It certainly isn't electrical or cosmetic. The pipes are mechanically deteriorating. The mechanical/physical properties of the alloys and coatings are breaking down due to the constant heating (very high heat)and cooling of the turbo unit. Bring words like motor ombudsmen into your conversation, especially as you have already been instructed by the dealership to book the vehicle into a main dealer to have agreed works carried out to which they have now renaiged on. This even being a verbal agreement us binding and they should stick to the terms they later down, that being the payment of said agreed works.

    2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    As long as they don't rot for another 12 months then it isn't my issue although if they rot tomorrow it will be a Ford issue anyway. I agree, I would expect the dealer (if reputable) to do the basic repair with paint/sealer as a goodwill gesture at least. I also agree they won't replace the full turbo without Ford paying for it

    2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    My input from a 18 month old Mk7.5 St Line is that these pipes/connectors still look in pristine condition with no blemishes or potential rust spots. It seems like in later models the pipe issue has been remedied as they Must have changed the components to corrosion free materials.

    I think the dealer you bought the car from will stick to the cheap recommended Ford fix. (Especially if Ford are unwilling to replace under any form of warranty). The dealer will be unwilling to pay for the new turbo unit along with Labour. You may get some movement if you offer to pay for the new parts or the Labour but neither will be cheap I wouldn't have thought. See what they say.
