You will suffer alone when it starts and even abandon ship at some point in time.

I wonder how a 2010 car made by a company like FORD will give so much issues that one is advised to sell immediately it lands. It is well

That car is not bad, I don't understand why they condemned it thou, Ford is a good car, just follow the manufacturer recommendations.

The car is even a gift, it makes absolutely no sense to sell immediately.
@OP you can sell when it start bringing up real major problems which I doubt honestly

Unfortunately we'll have to be stucked with it for at least 3mnts before we can sell without incurring the old man's wrath. I just pray the car behaves for that long.

Thanks. Though the reviews on Edmunds is not that encouraging as almost 20% of users had encountered issues with transmission slippage and almost about 50% had to fix one issue or another with it's throttle body at some point after 100kmiles, we'll try to be meticulous with the maintenance and see how far we can go without it popping up one or two issues.

Why not park the car and use it to go to church every Sunday, in 3 months you put the car for sale. This one Oga Gazzuzz is hammering on selling the car, there is something he knows that we don't know.
Listen to him. grin

Alright guys. Ford Fusion is here. And from the VIN, It's actually a 2012 model and not 2010. I quickly rushed to check reviews on Edmunds and the 2012 model, unlike the 2010, does not have all that bad user reviews. American users said almost all the issues on the 09/10 model (transmission, throttle body, power steering, etc) has been fixed with the 2012 so that leaves us with Naija users review and dem Kazeem dem. So what you think?

Good evening All,

Please, how many km is 30 litres of fuel meant to cover in a 2009 Kia Sportage? Mine covers like 130/140km and I believe the car consumes more fuel than normal.

Also, at times when accelerating the vehicle drags for a little while and suddenly pick up/move faster. What could be the problem?

Update - car is 2.0L engine and 4 plugs.


Thank you.

Good evening, update on the replacement of the four coils of corolla 2009.
After replacement of the coils (4). The problem still persist. It was later suggested that the cylinder gasket was the problem . Lol and behold , after removing the top part of engine , the gasket has cut. My mechanic change the gasket and the car is now working perfect. Thanks
this is why we don't like to do remote diagnosis. Glad it's working
Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by topsydee007: 11:55pm On Jun 05
Good evening everyone. Please I need your advice.

I recently bought engine for Mr Toyota Corolla LE 2003. The mechanic that fixed it for me recommend that I use VISCO 2000 engine oil which I did. Now I have made some research online and discover they VISCO 2000 isn't a good oil for the car. I have driven the car for about 2500 Odometer with the VISCO 2000 oil and no issues.

I want to change my engine oil to a very good oil,. I don't want oil that will damage the engine I borrowed money to buy at the long run.

Please if I change the oil will it affect the engine?

Kindly recommend a very good oil I can use that is relatively affordable.

Pardon me I discovered mobil 1 is good but very very expensive.

Is there any Other good oil out there that isn't too expensive?

Please your advice will be highly appreciated
