HI EVERYONE,

JUST SIGNED UP TO THE FORUM.I LIVE IN NORTHERN IRELAND AND HAVE BOUGHT MY SECOND CMAX.ITS A 1.8 TDCI TITANIUM WITH FACTORY SPORT PACK.FULL LEATHER.HAS MOST EXTRAS AS THE CAR CAME AS A FORD DIRECT CAR WITH 6000 MILES IN VISION BLUE.

I LIKE IT TO LOOK AT BUT I HAVE TO SAY THAT I AM A BIT DISAPOINTED WITH THE PERFORMANCE.IT HAS A FLAT SPOT ON TAKE OFF AND HAS VERY LITTLE POWER UNTIL THE TURBO KICKS IN.I HAVE TRIED TO SEE IF IT CAN BE SORTED WITH THE DEALER BUT HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT IT IS A CHARACTERISTIC OF THE 1.8 AS THE FOCUS AND MONDEO SUFFERS FROM THIS PROBLEM AS WELL. I AM CONSIDERING GOING FOR A AFTERMARKET REMAP BUT I AM NOT SURE BECAUSE IT WOULD INVALIDATE MY WARRANTY.THIS SPOILS AN OTHERWISE GREAT LOOKING CAR.

HAS ANYONE ELSE FOUND THIS PROBLEM WITH THEIRS AND ANY IDEA HOW TO SORT IT.
