Hi All,

Have just taken delivery of an auto Vignale with the safety pack.

I am very pleased with the car, and just have two gripes:
  • I am not very tall, and the centre armrest just doesn't extend far enough forwards for me, or most women.
    It could really do with more cubby holes to store odd and bods.
I think the puncture repair kit is missing (I believe it is supposed to be under the driver's seat, and it isn't). But I'd rather have a steel spare, but I believe it isn;t an option?

One thing I found that may be useful; whilst Lock/Unlock worked on FordPass, Remote Start didn't. It did once I uninstalled and reinstalled the app (Android).

Regards,

Paul

I agree about the armrest....Pretty useless for most people as an actual rest. It's the same one as in the Fiesta's and it wasn't any better in there.

Welcome to the forum. Glad you liked me your Puma.

I think you'll find the tyre inflation kit in the boot side compartment. It used to be under the drivers seat but has been replaced by the hybrid battery.

Agree pretty rubbish for an arm rest. Could have done with a function to slide it forward and back when needed.

Hi, yes, thanks! I found it there.

If you build a puma online at this time there is no option for a temp spare regardless of what model or engine.

It is also not listed in ford accessories catalogue .

Well....I couldn't find it anyway.
