    My car

    I have owned the 2 ltr automatic diesel for 18 months now and have a mixture of feelings about it. It is reasonably comfortable but compared to my last car (Insignia) find it as good for seating a 6 ft person. Gearbox is not too bad though a bit sluggish on take off from stationary and acceleration is not brilliant. Dashboard is messy and over complicated. There are too many knobs, switches etc which are confusing/difficult to work out without having the manual to hand. Drive comfort is OK, not exceptional. Do not like the lack of real storage space, almost lip service level. Seat height is good - I have usually had problems in past because of my height. Boot space is reasonable, but still cannot get my dog to get in, she insists on sitting in back seat, which gets muddy!! Overall, not a bad car, but probably one which I will not buy again when it comes time to renew unless something is done about the seats and gearbox. One final thing. Why are Ford and many other car makers restricting us to dull grey/silver/black/dark blue colours? What happened to the rest of the pallet?

    My car

    I've had this car since August 2013, it has been into the service centre 3 times (so far).

    No power on pull away, which has left me in some very hairy situations at roundabouts. Thankfully this one seems to of been solved with the latest software update. Faulty DCT gearbox. Grinding of gears shifting from 2nd to 3rd. Couldn't find a fault. CD player not working. With a 2 week to 6 month wait on a new unit. Ford SYNC bluetooth not recognising my iPhone. Solved with a software update.

    Along with an annoying rattle from somewhere behind the dash, it's also very thirsty. A recent motorway run from the M5 to the M25, keeping at around 70mph, easy on the throttle, netted me 34.9mpg. Now I wasn't expecting the manufactures figures, but mid-high 30's wouldn't of been a lot to ask. Around town I can expect <32mpg.

    Positives (yes there are some); The handling is great for such a tall car, the seating position is nice, there's plenty of room and I personally think it looks great.

    Would I recommend one? Probably not. Will I look to Ford when it's time to trade in? Nope.

    My car

    Took delivery of my new style Kuga 4 weeks ago (June 2013). Had the Titanium X spec with powershift auto. Good bits: look of the car, inside and out is excellent. Great equipment levels on the car, which, on the VW Tiguan, would have added another £3,000. Ride is firm but quite acceptable and the drivers seat has excellent choice of positions. Auto boot lid is brilliant! Bad bits: car door lock failed within 1 hour of collecting the car. However, dealer was excellent at dealing with this, though it took 7 days and 2 visits to fix the fault. Auto gear box is not very good. Constantly "hunting" for correct gear whilst in town. Fine on the motorway.

    Overall: 6 out of 10 - they need to sort out the gearbox. Good car for someone who has difficulty walking - cabin height makes it very easy to get in and out of
