Ford Kuga 2x4
FORD KUGA 2.0 TDCi Titanium 5dr 2WD (Review date: 19th January '12)
The best Ford we have owned
FORD KUGA 2.0 TDCi 163 Titanium 5dr (Review date: 18th January '12)
Although we have only had this car a couple of months,it is without doubt one of the best cars we have ever had and certainly the best Ford we have owned. Considering the fact that we went from a BMW that we had for 5 years to the Kuga, that is high praise indeed.
The car is big enough to give you a sense of a commanding road presence and still small enough to cope with supermarket car parking spaces.
The seating is comfortable and firm although a little cramped if there are three adults in the back.
The boot may be a little small for a large family but it is absolutely fine for us as a couple,and the rear seats fold to give a massive load area if you need to transport anything big
The ride is fantastic, potholes and bumps are absorbed with no driver discomfort.
The quality of trim is easily comparable to the top end marques, we have no complaints about the plastics/matreials used.
The car is driven on a daily commute of approx 70 miles of mixed motorway ,town and A road driving and has been returning a satisfactory mpg of around 38-40.
To anyone considering purchasing a Kuga I would say look at a 163 hp model as opposed to the 140, the difference in power when driving is very noticable. The Titanium gives you a few more toys to play with than the zetec and we think it was worth the extra.
All in all, so far she has been an amazing car that has turned heads wherever we have been.
FORD KUGA 2.0 TDCi 140 Titanium 5dr 2WD (Review date: 16th January '12)
Its the best car I have driven, great value for money.
Very good family car with loads of space. Top specification with X pack, panoramic view etc adds to luxury. We have driven 22000 miles with no trouble what so ever. Fuel economy is not very good for the size of the car. 2 WD runs like a dream, even on snow, didnt feel that I needed a 4 WD.
Overall its a wonderful darling.
Kuga - constantly breaking down
FORD KUGA 2.0 TDCi Zetec 5dr (Review date: 13th September '11)
I had a Ford Kuga and was really pleased with it until one day, in the rain on holiday, the battery went dead for no reason (car was only a year old). It took the AA nearly 2 hours to get it going again and it went into a dealership, who failed to diagnose a fault. A few months later, same thing happened, only this time it had to be towed to the dealership who (spot the common theme?) failed to find a fault. This happened on 5 or 6 different occasions - on every occasion it wouldn't start, and sometimes we also got problems with the electrics - indicators not working, strange error messages, central locking not working etc. On each occasion that it went into the garage, we had the usual debate about who pays to get it to them, whether there are courtesy cars available, etc. They never got to the bottom of it and as I drive around with young children in the back, I couldn't keep it any longer. I sold it to the only dealership who would touch it for an enormous loss due to its ongoing oblems. Ford customer service not prepared to help other than to say if you buy another Ford full price, we'll give you a couple of free services. Would YOU buy another Ford after that experience? I would steer clear of Ford Kugas - all style and no substance.
FORD KUGA 2.0 TDCi Titanium 5dr (Review date: 4th August '11)
Have been running my Kuga from new for almost 40,000 miles over two years.
Fabulous car - swallows up gear when we're travelling with dog and luggage, effortless on motorway and most importantly for us (living up in the Pennines) 4x4 means we can get anywhere at any time of year.
No problems to date, only expenditure four new tyres at 36,000 miles.
If it continues in this vein I'll be swapping it for a new one at three years old - can't see anythig else on the market in the price bracket that I like as much!
