I have now had the Kuga for two years, only one visit to the dealers for a problem dealt with quickly and without issues. The is KUGA comfortable to drive, well equiped, well built with no rattles, looks good. On the road, the Kuga smooths out the many rough surfaces on our roads. current economy is over 43.6 mpg over long runs to our holiday home in the Lake district and local running, it must be a good car my wife falls asleep within 15 minutes of setting out from home, she never did in Freelander 2. Allround this car is an excellent vehicle has not let me down is ecomonical drive and is comfortable what more can I say, would I get another YES I cannot wait for the new model to come out later this year.
Having moved on from my Nissan Juke, I needed to get something slightly bigger with a more relaxed and refined engine. I narrowed down my selection to 3 cars. The Kuga, Quashqai and Tiguan. Of the 3, I felt the Kuga was the most refined, well built and car like to drive. Its also incredibly stylish and affordable. I got a cracking deal on a nearly new one, which came fully loaded with the X-Pack, which includes Xenons, full heated leather and a panoramic roof. It also had the comms pack and appearance pack. Add this to the standard Titanium spec and you end up with a car which has all the bells and whistles to rival competition from cars in two classes above. In the time Ive owned it, it has proven faultless, economical, smooth and effortless to drive. The panoramic roof makes the cabin an airy and spacious place to be and the solar relfecting roof and windscreen means it feels cool even on bright and sunny days! The high driving position gives a real feeling of safety and the Cat one immobiliser adds by providing class leading security. So far, Ive found no flaws at all with the car. It looks fantastic, drives easily, is comfortable on long journeys and seems to be holding its value well. In summary, Id recommend a Kuga to anyone who needs a crossover vehicle.
Have just ordered the 2WD Titanium model with a few added extras for £17,500 which was a fantastic deal considering it is worth over £22,500 if you configure it on the Ford website. I ordered the car through drivethedeal.com who i have too say were brilliant with no problem whatsoever, it was all so simple and no annoying saleman to get on your nerves. I test drove a 4WD at a dealer who, according to their website 'pride themselves on customer service', i wouldn't buy or book anything with them. They tried to flog me the one year old demo for £18000 with 15000 miles on the clock and would not budge on the price by one penny and i've actually ended up with a brand new car for less by going online. No wonder they are in trouble. Also their attitude is just terrible (avoid them).
Saying all that the car is just excellent with a great 2.0ltr deisel engine which is very refined,it's more than fun to drive and the fuel economy an average of 46mpg and road tax of £145 is perfect for what i want. The extras are a bit pricey as is the car but there are some great deals out there. Try drivethedeal.com they are excellent.
£19K for a pre-reg Kuga is easy to beat!! The only Kuga worth going for is the top of the range one other wise you will have zetec spec which has weird "fisher price" colour incerts in the doors panels,seats and around the gear stick lever if you dont belive me look on fords website or look on the autotrader website.The cabin is well through out and practical, but at the same time bland and will date quickly. otherwise it drives really well. Service intervals at just 12,500 miles so thats something to consider when you are wrkig out your cost of ownership. I went for a Vauxhall Antara (no im not a vauxhall freak just trying to help people save some money) ex demo with 14k miles on the clock its SE spec leather sat nav... top of the range. Purchased for just £13k, its a CDTi ans service intervals are 20,000 miles per service. its drinks a bit 32miles per gallon but considering the costs of purchase its also worth a look. Back to the ford - i really did want to buy one, but when you do the maths its a no brainer, as i could not afford to go up to 19K to get the same spec. Driving wise theres not much in it, but i have to admit the ford shades it. I also looked at a Tigan from VW and thought the car was too small and the dash made me fall asleep it was so boring. Honda CRV was really nice but like the ford it costs a bomb to get same spec as i have now.
