A good car overall. I wish I went for the petrol version and avoided all this extra cost!!!
Shortly after getting my car, I needed the injectors reprogrammed.
Surprise injectors again! This time I got reconditioned ones fitted, as the new ones are nearly the price of the car!
One month later trouble again. Oil in the diesel, paid 30 pounds to get it tested. Two bad injectors and a suspect pump. Got injectors fixed, new pump fitted and a new fuel tank fitted; old one had no lining left on inside. Nobody knows why there was oil in the fuel, including Ford. After all this was done, I'm still getting oil in my fuel.
The climate control stopped working.
Six disc CD player stopped working. When I removed it to retrieve my CD's, there was lots of writing on it and a yellow Ford sticker saying it had been reconditioned 8 months ago. So took it to a Ford garage only to be told tough, there was no warranty with CD players.
Bad luck you might say? This all happened within nine months.
Nice car to drive when it works, 130 hp is nice, and the car has a lovely inside.
Mpg is low even after the new pump, I average 350 miles to a tank and that's normal driving.
The estate has a good load bay.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
