Brave move to get another one after the problems you had with the first. Hope you got the manual this time.

I have the 1.0 Titanium X 123 bhp and love the car. Piwer of a 1.6 when I need it with the economy of a 1.0 when I don't.

What sort of MPG do you get with the 1.6?

Getting 45mpg on motorway driving and 32mpg on local driving will let you know if any judder starts but like mystic Meg said think lucky and be lucky

Sounds about right. That's what I was getting from a couple of 1.6 Mondeos I had. It's a solid engine though if a bit on the thirsty side.

How do you find the gear ratio's? The 1.0 ratio's are a tad on the high side, but that helps the MPG and I can change down if I need to. Around town, I hardly ever use 5th, but it is a great ratio to have out of town and on the motorway.
