Great looks, great performance, Fix Or Repair Daily
For the first couple of months of owning the car, nothing went wrong, however...
2 new front lower wishbones.
2 track rod ends.
2 front drop links.
4 headlight bulbs (pain in the ass to fit).
2 new complete drive shafts.
2 rear wheel bearings.
New driver's seat as part of the frame was sticking out (opted to upgrade to the Mondeo ST200 Recaros).
2 new side skirt caps.
New metal water pipe.
4 new coil springs.
New remote key (£165 at the main dealer).
2 sets of brake discs and pads, because the discs keeping warping.
New clutch kit.
New gear linkage.
This is a really nice car to drive; the Zetec engine pulls well throughout the rev range.
It's comfortable and ergonomic, the standard Zetec seats tend to wear easily, but the Recaros really do make some difference, they give a lot more support.
The RSAP factory fitted body kit and pearlescent paint really set the car off.
Overall, I think it's a great car after you forget about the work I've had to do to it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
