Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Ford Puma hatchback?

Top-spec versions of the Puma have larger alloy wheels that can be susceptible to kerb damage, so check the wheels carefully. Also, look for any dents, dings and scratches to the bodywork, because paint and body repairs can be expensive. Make sure the clutch engages smoothly and that the car goes into gear easily.

There have been three recall notices issued for the Puma so far.

How to check if the vehicle is recalled

Contact the local FORD dealership or manufacturer. You will not need to pay for anything involving the recall.

How the manufacturer will repair

Carry out a software update.

Number of affected vehicles

100

In our most recent reliability survey, the Puma came 15th out of 20 cars in the small SUV class. Ford as a brand ranked 22nd out of 30 manufacturers in the same survey. Both rankings are rather disappointing.
