“Good Car spoilt by silly faults”

Written on: 24/12/2013

I have owned this car for 8 years now and its covered 170,000 miles, of which I'm responsible for about 110K. Generally has been a very reliable car, especially as its towed our caravan all over the place with no complaints. Economical for a big car. Interior is hard wearing, with no wear on the seats at all. Heated front screen is BRILLIANT - Well done Ford!
Now the downside - Has broken every coil spring at some time or other. Drop links have been changed at least 3 times, new fuel pump last year, DMF and clutch at 100K, handbrake cable needs changing every other service, rear sub frame swapped at about 100K, 3 starter motors, alternator last year, intercooler pipe also split last year. Finally, the usual Ford problem - rust! All 4 doors have tin worm along the bottom.
I think the biggest issue was the DMF and clutch. This cost about £550 to swap. Of course being a Ford, this was relatively cheap as are most parts and wherever you go in Europe, you'll always find a garage to fix it.
