Fuel injectors replaced at 52000 miles (off the road for two days).
Creak from the drivers side (don't know what causes it, nor do the dealer!).
Intermittent problem with rough idling when starting, has done this on numerous occasions, but the dealer cannot find a fault.
The Ford dealer service is very poor in general. This is not the first Ford I have had either. My previous car was a Honda; their service was superb.
Generally the car has been very reliable and robust.
I have covered 56000 miles in just over 2 years and this is a variety of long motorway journeys combined with city journeys, being driven fairly hard most of the time, despite the above issues the car has never let me down or broken down.
The equipment levels are superb, climate control, cruise control, heated windscreen, blue tooth stereo, automatic lights and wipers.
Comfort wise the seats are not brilliant, especially on a long journey, however the general interior space is very good and the car does look very nice; the alloy wheels on this model really set it off.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
