Firstly there is no cruise control, there is a speed warning boing. So say you hit 70mph and press the button from the steering wheel. This will activate the speed warning so each time you hit / exceed 70mph you will hear the speed boing alarm thingy mabob alerting you of your speed.
I have had the 1.5 pure-drive diesel N-tec for a few years now and have had to carry out the following.
1, Changed both front lower control arms as there was a little play in the lower ball joints, as opposed to pressing in new ball joints i changed both arms which came with new joints and bushes all round.
2, Wiper linkage gave way whilst dad was using Toady my k12 on a trip up to Edinburgh. ( Lets not talk about that, AA fleeced him £250 for a complete new linkage not just a few arms)
3, Rear passenger side wheel bearing replaced.
4, Replaced both front coil springs.
5, Changed front anti roll bar bushes as there was a terrible squeak when going over speed bumps. ( Had to lower part of the sub frame to do these)
Connect multimedia system has been running fine, Bluetooth connects up pretty much straight away. The first time you pair a new phone you will be asked for a pin code, if its not been changed then the default is 1234.
