Very pleased with my white 2010 Ford Kuga, bought second-hand a year and a half ago. Comfortable to drive and good road holding. Relatively good value for money with useful extras such as rear view parking screen, rear and front parking bleepers, cruise control and heated front seats.
Drawbacks - are that the darkened rear windows make reversing in the dark very difficult. Also, the computer screen isn't easy to work, eg: the Bluetooth phone function and sat nav are complicated to set.
The full length glass roof is good, though I miss not being able to open it, having always enjoyed having an open sunshine roof in all my previous cars.
All in all I fully recommend the Kuga, and I definitely think it is one of the best looking cars on the road.
Not the largest of vehicles and poor leg room in the rear. Cannot open bonnet without a key. I find it virtually impossible to split the key to do this as did the salesman ? Filling the washer bottle is a real chore. The keyless ignition means the keys slop about in the vehicle !
No petrol filler cap is supposed to be a selling point ! You instead have to be careful when washing the car so you dont add water to the fuel tank.
Parking sensors were not an option when i bought the vehicle?
Interior carpet is very poor quality and the clutch pedal has made a hole in the carpet. Apparently quite common.
A sound vehicle , if a little basic, but useless over- engineered touches do not add to the overall enjoyment of owning this vehicle.
Having purchased the Ford Kuga second hand (34,000 miles), I was disappointed with the fuel consumption not meeting the figures given. Then after 8 months and 3,500 miles I have had to replace the Diesel Particulate Filter. Not once in the sales pitch was I told that the car had to go through a regeneration procedure every 500 miles or so where you run the car hat high revs for 25 miles to burn off the soot in the filter. I would love to know if that is included in the mpg figures?
Other than that i have found the Kuge to be a great car for comfort performance and handling, the boot space is not quite as large as i first thought.
Given a bit of hindsight I would have gone for the petrol version.
Very few moans but : Deisel engine means I must remember to 'give it some welly' from a standing start - has been known to stall.
Gear stick surround is a bad design, skirt keeps coming off and now frame has snapped. Needs stronger support.
Radio occasionally cuts out and back in when I go over a bump.
Have never mastered 'split' boot door opening, just too stiff for me with arthritic hands.
Fantastic over road humps and rough roads as 4 x 4 takes over.
Feels safe and solid and is surprisingly economic for a car that size [32-35 mpg on long runs]
New Kuga rides,handles better and is quieter than the older model. The instrument panel is now state of the art, with a much more modern look and feel, with the full Ford sync system, which operates very well. Only down side is that there is nowhere to store a standard European first aid box, which now floats around in the boot (the old one had a specific underfloor storage for it). The 2 litre turbo diesel is torquey and pulls well, returning and average 42 mpg (according to the trip computer)with the 6 speed manual gearbox.
First gear is a bit sticky and I've stalled a few times more than I should've done! Otherwise the car is brilliant - very comfortable on long journeys, cruises at 75 mph effortlessly and with reverse parking camera is relatively easy to park. We have a small dog and the boot could be larger to fit his cage and luggage when there are four passengers. Fuel economy is good. I would and am buying another!
I love the extra height the car gives me, especially when driving on motorways. The car is responsive when it needs to be, holds the road well as it has all wheel drive, and generally is a pleasure to drive.down side of the four wheel drive is the fuel economy which is perhaps not as good as I might have expected from a diesel at around 35-40mpg
Absolutely fab car fab condition its got all the extras i need for the job i do.One of fords finest family road cars.Thanks "Cars for People" for a great deal and "AA"for the upto date car advertising on the web.
This is a very comfortable and easy car to drive with good all round vision, ample leg room and loading space, it would be good if there were more gadgets which were not options such as heated seats, sat nav, folding mirrors
Lovely car, with ware and tare as you would expect from its age. Nice drive and postive steering. Can't rate running cost and reliability as only had it a few days. Hoping the dealer will help out on a few points.
I enjoy driving the Kuga and feel comfrtable and safe.I had 1 major mechanical fault which should not have occured considering the cars age.Luckily it was repaired under warranty
Smallish boot, perky engine, duel clutch not clever to recognise deceleration followed by acceleration again without selecting correct gear
A comfortable well equipped car with plenty of internal space. Good annual costs which include servicing,road tax and insurance.
Whilst I am happy with most aspects of the ford kuga I do find that the all round visibility is not as good as I would like.
I have really enjoyed driving this car. The cost of diesel is a bit daunting and I think carefully about what I am doing.
Great car for weekends Good ride visibilty excellent and just a fun family car
Good comfortable versatile transport for me and family.
I've been happy with it. ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS SO FAR.
Comfortable, good looking and sensible performance
Very reliable and comfortable car.
