Same goes to you...

So far i have <3000km on my kuga, consuming about 9.8l/100km (penang traffic), while on NSHW it gets down to 7.7/100km

Was interested in white but somehow run out of stock, went for black instead. Are yours 2014 batch?

Anyone has done wheel alignment? Are those tyre shops equip with the latest kuga database?

This is what i found out:

Front:
Camber -1.4˚ 0.1˚, Caster 3.9˚ 5.4˚, Toe 0.00˚ 0.20˚
Cross Camber -0.8˚ 0.8˚, Cross Caster -0.8˚ 0.8˚, Total Toe 0.00˚ 0.40˚
Rear:
Camber -2.1˚ -0.6˚, Toe -0.01˚ 0.39
Cross Camber -0.8˚ 0.8˚, Total Toe 0.18˚ 0.58˚, Thrust Angle -0.50˚ 0.50

Wao! your fuel consumption is very good!! I got mine since End March 2014, 1L about 8.2km only, city drive and soft footed some more. Full tank show about 470-490km.

What have you done to your car to make your kuga fuel consumption so good. Which brand of petrol you using? Esso? Shell? Etc...

I am looking to get the Kuga next month. However before I make the final commitment, always research to see if there are any issues. I am very disappointed to find this. Any one has any comment?

The latest recall concerns engine overheating, with warning messages appearing in the vehicle information display, and some reports of engine fires. Ford is urging owners of the affected models to contact their dealer immediately. Ford will cover costs related to overheating-related transportation.

The shocking news is that this is not the 1st recall,which means the earlier fixes were inadequate. Anyone knows if the overheat/fire problem been finally fixed?
