6000 mile update.
Now getting an extra 50 miles out of tank than when first received the car. Longest distance traveled in one go was 310 miles, still had 40miles left in the tank according to the computer. Not a hint of tiredness. Seats are truly fantastic. Glad I went for the sports pack to get the sports seats. Sony stereo is fantastic as well. The 8 speakers fitted are superb. Like the little extra on the Titanium spec, puddle lights, see you home lights, auto dimming rear view mirror. Really useful when you try them.
Had the car 4 up on many occasions, all say how upmarket it is, part leather trim helps! Even people who say I've given up getting a MPV have shut up when they see it. 18" alloys, lowered suspension and body kit helps there! And them totally shut up when I drive them! 2.0 petrol pulls so well.
Took the rear seats out and managed to get 35 bin bags of clothes in. Not even a struggle.
Down sides -
Drivers seat squeaks, might be because I'm 6' 4", 18 stone ex-rugby player! That's why the I got the C-max instead of the Focus ST, couldn't really fit in that!
Carpet not correctly fitted in the factory, is away at the base of the drivers seat and in the passenger footwell.
Seat belt adjuster in door pillar rattles slightly.
ST style alloys are a real pain to clean.
Sat Nav sits so far away from you, but that's expected.
Overall, still loving the car. Starting to see lots more of the new shape on the road. Friend of my father recently bought one after I left my car on his drive and he had a good old look. He loves it!
If any see's a silver 08 with big alloy's along the M5 corridor just south of Birmingham, I'm the big *** with the happy grin!
