What year it is? 2007
What Variant/badge? Zetec
What series? LT
What transmission? Auto
and of course, how many km's did it run? Currently 85,000

Only issue being a complete gearbox (Which Ford paid for, We paid labour) and a Drive Shaft. Everything Else is perfect.

Best Ford I have own - still trying to decide what tyres - OEMs should make it to 90K. Interior starting to rattle slightly would be my only gripe. Love the Manual.

Year: 12/12 (rego Jan 13)
Body: Hatch
Series: S
Trans: Powershift
Kms: 24,000
Probs: None, other than a strange resonance that has started to occur at just over 2200 rpm.

Still I worry about the longevity of the transmission and the huge cost if something does go wrong outside warranty.

What year it is? 2002
What Variant/badge? CL Sedan
What series? LR
What transmission? Auto
KM's? 183,000

Bought second had from a dealer in 2005 with 42,000 on the clock.

Work other than consumables:

67,000 - replace HT leads

93,000 - replace alternator

101,000 - replace fan speed resistor

116,000 - servo broke and small metal pieces in auto trans, causing error code. servo replaced.

128,000 - timing belt replaced. leaking rocker cover gasket and leaking camshaft seals replaced. cracked thermostat housing replaced.

167,000 - power steering pump leaking - overhauled. leaking coolant - replaced coolant reservoir. air con gone - compressor cracked - hasn't been replaced due to cost.

172,000 - breakdown, loss of power. fuel pump replaced.

172,000 - breakdown, wouldn't start. starter motor replaced.

174,000 - failed rego inspection. vacuum hose replaced.

178,000 - breakdown, wouldn't start. fuel leak - lines replaced.

183,000 - cracked thermostat housing again, replaced.

I've decided the most recent expense is the last, and yes, too late maybe. These days it's a second car and it's mostly used for getting to/from the train station.

I'd be unlikely to buy ford again.
