    Ford really are terrible. I have a Kuga, it’s possibly one of the worst cars I’ve had for breakdowns and I’ve owned 2 Austin maestro’s in the past.😂

    And as for the 2 ford dealerships I’ve had to engage with, well they are worse than the car.

    Strange have just changed our Ford Kuga diesel over the 3 years we had done less than 20,000, far less than your 1,000 miles per month no problems ?[/quote]

     

    Exactly. The Ford dealer here is useless. In what world is 1000 miles a month not enough. The first time it broke down was a couple of weeks after a service, the RAC guy checked the oil and it was black. I’m a HGV driver and a retired diesel maintenance instructor and I’ve never seen oil so dirty. The last time it went into Ford they told me they have to investigate and it won’t be ready for at least 5 days, 2 hours later they phoned and said it was ready. When I went and collected it I noticed the seat had been moved back but the car was still in the Sam position I left it. I suspect they just turned the warning light of. Two weeks later the light came on again then went off. The car is now being changed as we have no confidence in it. The engine warning light has come on again today.

    Ford Kuga ST line X

    Had it 20 months its broken down three times with the same problem. When either going up a steep incline or at around 60mph it tries to shake itself apart and the amber engine warning light comes on. It’s cut out completely twice and would not start again, rac man on the second occasion advised getting rid of it.

    Ford have said its the DPF and the reason is because I’m not doing enough mileage, I do just below 1000 miles a month.

    We originally wanted the 3008 but they changed the bhp so under 25 can’t drive them now. Then the other day we looked at the sportage only to be told they are doing the same, higher bhp so no under 25. We currently have a tuscon but I really don’t like the over revving  system to prevent stalling and the fuel consumption is rubbish. Plus it costs nearly £1000 ap for the same mode. We only paid £250.Our choice seems to be quasqai, kuga or kadjar. Looking at spec, comfort, reliability and the better drive, the quasqai looks to be the better choice.

    They are fine as long as they are suitable, unfortunately none of them are.

    I need under 25 so Kodiak, BMW, Volvo and Mazda are out.

    Seat is too small. My wife finds the seats in the Karoq very uncomfortable with her disability.  So you see my problem.
