How many other people have had these problems?
Ive got a xr6 turbo blueprint everything standard and with a manual gearbox, i was wondering how many other people have had problems with them. So far ill tell you whats happened. The car arrived in feb without a 5th gear, so that got sent back and the gearbox was replaced, they did that nice and quick, no complaints(although how this got through qc i cant understand. first serveice went alright except for alot of brake shudder, they fixed that, no complaints. Now its coming up to the 15,000 k service, and ill give you a list of the problems.
-brake shudders back with avengence and one of the rear brakes is rubbing.
-5th gear now wont engage properly and crunches into gear, theres also a smell like the clutch is burning every now and then.
-and today the bonnet release fell off whalst i was driving so i couldnt press the gas very well as it was in the way.
all ive got to say is i hope ford are gonna deal with these problems with series 2, cause surely there shouldnt be this many problems. But the customer service has been second to none so ill give them that much.
cars going into be serviced this week so i'll see what they say.
