Ho Sylo,

I bought my 1.6 auto back in October. It was also a Motability car with just 3400 miles on it.
It's very important that you pay close attention to the clutch - see all the comments under Clutch Judder.
You are probably still under 3yr warranty. Assuming that the clutch has not been attended to, you will need to go through the 3 step procedure,
Software Update
New Clutch seals clutch pack
Replacement of internal clutch parts.


You will probably have to go through each stage with your Ford dealer and ensure that the clutch warranty is extended to 5 years, as is the norm.
Once past Stage 3, it's a very good car.

If you have no problem with the clutch, then mention it on service, otherwise chase the dealer soon.Maybe give the clutch a good test. The problem is apparent at about 10-12mph from 1st to 2nd and back, when the fluid is hot.
