Afternoon all. Pick up my (used) Kuga tomorrow. First ever diesel I've owned so apart from what I've read I have no knowledge about oil burners. Might be looking for advice shortly :)

Welcome to the forum @VeeJ

Before you pick the car up you need to know when the gearbox was last serviced as some of our members have had issues with the powershift on 2013 and 2014 cars mated with the 163 engine. The engine is extremely good as is the rest of the car.

Welcome to the forum.

You won't look back. Post details of your engine, gearbox, year and trim level in your signature. It makes getting help much easier should you need it.

@smartguy69 I am aware of issues with the gearbox. The car has a full-service history although not all the way with Ford dealers. I had planned on having the gearbox serviced just in case. Would you recommend an auto gearbox specialist or is it something my local, trusted garage should be able to do? Thanks

Pick it up tomorrow H. I've owned Jeeps for the last 25 years and have a fixation with the brand. Local specialists repair garages and availability of some parts have been a problem recently. I loved my Grand Cherokee but it had to go. Looking forward to going back to Ford.

@VeeJ - the independent garage I use does the powershift but some won't so you will need to check with yours.

To reply to multiple quotes with the same answer you just click where it says quote in the posts you want to reply to and then at the bottom of the message box it will say "insert qoutes (3)" if you were quoting 3 people, click insert quotes and type what you want to say underneath.

For different replies to posts quoted then the same applies where you type your response underneath where it says Quote for the message you are quoting. This may help.

Thanks for that @smartguy69. Now that I've had the opportunity to study the service book, Evans Halshaw has serviced it at 21k, 28k, 38k, 51k and on its current mileage 56k. Don't know yet what the powershift service interval is but I think I'll play safe and get it done now. There were also a couple of intermediate service stamps from Kwik Fit.:unsure:

On your car it should be every three years or 37,500 miles for the powershift service.
