6 months in and I have only just noticed a little arrow on the speedometer ring that indicates the current speed limit. As I have said several times, something new every time I drive the car :shock:
That arrow is only there when you set either the cruise control or speed limiter AFAIK. Maybe you have the limiter switched to automatic?

Hi everyone - new to the forum , this is my first post, and new to Ford, the Puma is my first Ford (Im in my 50's) and touch wood - I love this car ! Glad Ive found this forum to keep informed of problems with the car and any issues that arise.

To answer the question at the start of this thread - this is my first car with cruise control and now I couldnt live without that. All my music is on CD so I was delighted to find that a CD player was available as a dealer fit option so I went for that.

Had the car a month, and so far Im also a happy new owner - long may it continue

Hi - after a year of thinking/changing my mind, hesitating - went for an ST Line in black with privacy glass and a CD player as extras. Already thinking about what colour, when the PCP ends, for the next one - another thread on here about colours shows a Puma in metropolis white with a black contrast roof - if Id found this forum and seen that picture before ordering I would have gone for that contrast option - it looks fantastic. However, happy to have what I have, its the best car (so far, touch wood) Ive ever owned and a car which you feel a real attachment to and affection for.

Nice one.

I don’t think there’s a bad colour, just personal preference. Hope you continue to enjoy it.

That Sport mode is quite mad isnt it ? I was hoping to save fuel with this car over the 14 year old 1st edition C Max 1.6 petrol that used to drink it as if it was a V8, but it looks like Sport mode will stop me with the fuel saving plan. :)

Fuel saving is a fools errand anyway..... :D If you are worrying about fuel saving you aren't enjoying the car.... ;)

Its early days with plenty of time to use sport mode. you never know, perhaps over the next year, someone might come up with a hack to keep the car in sport mode :) No one seems to mention if they find the megabox as amazing as the hype states.

I find the megabox quite practical. The hype about using it as a cool box for beers or on on road aquarium with goldfish and carrying golf clubs is silly. It certainly has lots of uses while still maintaining a flat boot floor so I'm a fan.
