Finally, unexpectedly, got my beauty back from the garage on 10 Nov.
I am so pleased to finally have the car I ordered after 3.5 weeks of sheer misery. She is an absolute beaut'.
Black, sleek, get loads of admiring glances. Unique I guess, becauseI haven't seen another kuga in my neck of the woods yet. She's a youngster having done just over 100 miles in her first month of life, but friends already comment on her looks, speed and agility. Real glad I bought all the packs. It's fantastically lazy to have keyless open/close, auto lights, auto wipers, foolproofelectronic seat adjustment and front/back parking sensors. Now I've got her back I need to go back thru and set everything up the way I first had it - the garage reset everything to factory settings when they repaired it.
So one really really happy kuga owner here. (if only it had happened from day 1 - hopefully she stays sound and the pain eventually eases).
Anniversary news. Have had Black Beauty a month now
And she's been trouble free for just over a week.
Mpg nearly up to 32 and rising (only done450 miles) and the pleasure in driving continues to grow. I look forward to it - never had that with a car before.Also really good for my recent bad back - heated seats and easy to get in & out of. Edited by: lochydog
Good news lochydog. There are a few posts now about problems with Kugas, so I hope that you remain a happy rider.
I have had my car for 4 months and have had (touches wood firmly) not one issue that I can call a problem with the build. So just to set the balance right, there are good ones out there too!
I also gave my heated seats awarm upthis weekend... frst car I have owned that had the option. I like it.
PS: my K also has GG in the registration.... but I'm not tempted to try and give the car a name.... yet!
gee-gee is a word for horse used by children or in adult slang ( a noun).
Further researchsuggests a "Gee-Gee" is the first horse out of the stable. Apparently the term came from the early 19th century, when a child would say "Gee up!" in order to get a horse to start moving.
So out I went the other day to the local shopping mall. Parkjed my black beauty amongst the masses. Went in a load of shops. Came out the sun was shining onthis really good looking car. Bloody ****, it was mine! Made me feel really good.
