I did here summat about a whole boatload of Fords being totally swamped during heavy seas on the way over.
They've taken them all back to the factory  be proffesionaly dried and valeted apparently. whistle:

Engine problems...my arse. happy001
The only problems with the engines is getting the sea water out of the bores! Banghead

Do have any more info on that?

I'm still waiting for a copy of the e-mail the dealer received from 'higher up' also there there is the possibility of a 'Titanium' spec at a reasonable price  rubschin: and I'm awaiting details of that as well.

e-mail states problem with the 'Auto-Start-Stop' mechanism resulting in the recall.

Only trouble with that is the engine spec I ordered doesn't have that.   rubschin:

Oh well  shrugs:

Oh lighten up you grumpy ole sod #2  ;)

Only taking the urine. Banghead

I'd be asking them some serious questions as to WHY yours is being delayed if the fault is with the stop and start system that yours won't be having.

They'll have some lousy standard excuse no doubt, like your was booked in for delivery with a load of s&s models, and the computer wouldn't accept any ammendments...or some such other random load of nonsense. ::)

Well instead of sarcastically rolling your eyes at me....apologies if that wasn't so....then WHAT did they say to the question?
Seems crazy it's been delayed if it hasn't got the s&s re-call problem. eeek:

The dealer doesn't know, so an e-mail has gone to the 'higher-ups' in Ford.

Gates of Harlow ~ I bought the Fusion from them. The salesman is ok(ish) ~ not that sharp, after all, he should have spotted that bit about the Stop-Start fault.
