Excellent handling and lovely engine. Poor build quality though
Drivers seat cover looks like it's coming away near release handle.
Rear window leaked and had to be fixed at Ford dealer. Door seals sometimes let in water in heavy rain leading to wet passenger seat.
Radio keeps switching off, airbag light has come on, odometer display keeps going off and returning.
Creaking from n/s front suspension. Metallic clicking noise going over speed humps.
Fog lights mist up at front.
Dealers are useless and not interested in fixing car.
A cracking little car if not a bit too small in the rear. What a shame the build quality (in particular the suspension and electrics) is so poor and the dealers couldn't care less.
Build quality not a patch on the Focus.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
