Hi,

Thank you for looking.

I am about to buy a 06 facelift model of the 307cc 1.6 for my wife. We 've drove the car and it fits the bill, but one thing that was concerning me and my wife when we drove it was the clutch/biting point was really high - is this just how it is in 1.6 ? would a 2.0 'bite' better or is the clutch about to go?

Thank you

How high in relation to the brake pedal?

Hi David,

thanks for your reply.

Not sure in relation to brake pedal, but it was high enough for it to make partner not feel safe pulling out of the junction to get the biting point. i did point this out to the garage but they told me its normal for this type of vehicle to have a high biting point.

It is pretty much the same in them all. The 1.6 is very underpowered for the weight of the car also. What kind of a car did she have before the cc?

its was a ford kuga, but she had drove a 307cc hdi with similar mileage etc, and didn't feel as unsure as she did in the 1.6!

Its down to taste then isin't it. Its just a matter of getting used to also. Not all cars drive the same.

so you think its just because it under powered? would it be better getting the 2.0 petrol? can you tell me if they are really heavy on petrol?

When I changed from the 1.6 to the 2.0 I felt the gears and clutch were alot different and took me a while to not jerk the car when changing up to second but have got use to it now:thumb:

she does 50 miles a day mainly on the motorway, thats why i wanted to get a 1.6 as the diesel's are out of the price range!

Sorry I thought you were choosing between fuels.I guess it's really going to have to be a personal choice as to the engine you go for so.50 miles a day will be pricey in a 2.0 p in my opinion
