Hi guys and gals
Thought I would say hello to everyone.
As the name would suggest, I'm a bit of a Lotus fan. I don't own one yet but hopefully will do one day!
Anyway, before you all think that I'm on the wrong forum, I bought a 55 plate (2006) 2.0TDCi Ghia Focus CmaxinMarch and so far it has behaved it self well. I've done about 4k so far (had 47k on the clock when I bought it).
I must say that I have surprised myself as well as my wife having bought the Cmax as it's not really the sort of motor I would have imagined buying. But hey, the money has been spent and the rest is history. It will be handy for the family that is due (baby boy on the way in about 4 weeks if he's on time!) and any others that appear over the next few years.
I'm generally happy with it apart from it not being the greatest drive around town - can be a bit sticky going into second and the clutch offers too much resistance. It's therefore happiest cruising on the motorway! Great MPG too (currently averaging 47mpg with air con switched on).
We're a bit of a Ford bunch now as I organised an 02 Reg Focus Zetec for the better half in April. The Lotus may come next as the non-family car!
Anyway, thanks for looking in at my first post. Look forward to meeting you (virtually of course!).
