focus 3000km check up

had my focus in for its 3000 km service today i had a few little things to complain about there seems to be a rattle in the passanger front piller
and the brakes sometimes give a loud squeeking sound when breaking at low speeds.

To my suprise the dealer said the windscreen needs to be replaced to stop the rattle (next week). The brakes were just full of dust from bedding in which he said was totally normal so i guess we will see how we go
apart from that the car is brillant, and in the big picture i'm a fussy barstard anyway

happy new year to all

We're all fussy!!!!! That's why we're enthusiasts. But glad to hear it is otherwise running like a swiss watch... or a German car

Re: focus 3000km check up

Yeah my brakes had that problem too, but after they cleaned them off, they were fine. I could have done it myself, but seeing as they had the car... haha.

Good luck with it, and all the best for the new year too!
