2008-reg Diesel, Owner for less than a year

No reliability problems whatsoever. Servicing is very reasonable. mpg nowhere near manufacturers figures. I returned it to the main agent where I bought it and they said that the 28mpg I was getting from the 2 litre diesel would be improved with the recomended premium fuel (ie shell or bp) rather than supermarket stuff. they were right and after 2/3 tankfuls it improved by 25%. however you pay more for this fuel but as I get better performanve and mpg I'm happy to continue with it.

I find the Kuga a fantastic car, it performs well whatever you throw at it. Its as comfortable and capable on the motorway as it is plodding through snow. It looks good and gets the attention of other drivers as there arent many on the road. The engine is well suited to the size of car but would be nice to have a 2.2 tdci version available but other than that no complaints

Only minor issues like light bulbs blowing. Just the usual wear and tear items really tyres, brake pads, light bulbs all sourced via an independent garage who pass on some of benefit of trade discount so very happy with costs.

Nothing has gone wrong or broken off. Fuel consumption and running costs are very accecptable for the size and type of car.
