The funny thing with these is fundamentally they are fantastic cars, lovely things to drive, typical quality ford handling etc and to a decent extent they resolved a lot of the rust issues associated with previous models but a quick glance through your very comprehensive service history shows in about 10k miles he replaced starter, egr valve, numerous service items, I think a few other bits as well which goes to show even if their working great a big bill could be literally just waiting round the corner to snare you in!!

However same can be said for almost all modern cars so by that logic this post is in fact, completely pointless apart from this next sentence.

Well bought.



All very true. Supose the best you can do is buy as well as you can and accept what comes. Which is good advice for any car really.

And to be fair you've bought a cracker there.

I'm following with interest when the inevitable sale occurs, who knows it maybe the next chariot?

Well that mpg read out has surprised me. My dad had a 130tdci with some paperwork for a remap of some description and that was lucky to exceed 42mpg. They are nice motors though.

Bet he scribbled that history down last night,swapping pens every now and then.....


..... we had a 'pool car' at my job (CDi Carlton pezz) and we were far from head office. Car was used a lot by me at weekends and fuelled on Co. Card.

Project Director gets a note from head office 'we want to see mileage schedule for pool car' OK?

There never had been one - "quick [he said] get one made out for last year... Better use different colour pens!"

Will NEVER forget that line..... ;)

First full tank returned 47.1 mpg but I was booting it and running high on the cruise.

This tank I'm nursing it more and its had a service. If its still above 50mpg by the end of the tank Ill be happy.

I like to live dangerously. Like James Bond.  But with a spare wheel trim in the boot.
