turbos

Bought a 06 Focus CDTI in June 2010 second hand with 64000 miles on the clock its now done 74800 and the 3rd Turbo has just failed. Ford tell me I need a new engine and have offered no support, what a s**t car and Company. Beware if you are thinking of buying a Ford

i have had 2 focuss now and love them...yes i've had problems but usually every car does at some point and time, maybe the person who had it before just really beat the car up...don't give up hope, there is light at the end of the tunnel

ummm, welcome to the site?

Even though we don't have the CDTI here in the states, let us know if we can be of any assistance to you.

stop and think. It dont have to be necessary a fault of the car. Previous owners could slather this car make it all shiny at the end and sell it to you. But it just easier to blame a car right??
