Are there any problems with the motors? They are very few. Among the most frequent reviews note the failure of the thermostat. It happens approximately in 5070 thousand kilometers. As a result, the liquid begins to circulate only in the "small" circle. The problem is solved by installing a new thermostat, which costs 3.5 thousand rubleshowleadsyourself on the "Forde Kuge 2.5" automatic? Owner reviews say the box is prettyreliable. In order for the automatic transmission to last longer, in traffic jams at a 20-second idle time, it is necessary to reset to “neutral”. In terms of maintenance, it only requires an oil change every 50 thousand kilometers. Owners say that besidesATP-liquidneed to change the filters in the box. This is the only way to guarantee the continued operation of the Ford Cougie.Reviews positively characterize the mechanics. Clutch "walks" more than 120 thousand kilometers, and the oil is poured for the entire service life. But still, the owners advise to change it every 90 thousand, because over time the chips accumulate.
The most economical in this regard is a diesel engine. On a hundred in the combined cycle, it consumes seven liters. What do they say about the gasoline "Ford" (150.) Reviews? Motor is very voracious. In the city consumption on the machine is about 14 liters. On the track less than 8.5 does not get out. By the way, the on-board computer shows the flow with high accuracy.

Steering - electric power rake. The driver can independently adjust the steering force from the onboard computer. Brake system - disk, on allwheelsWhat do they say about the suspension of the Ford 2.5 SUV? Among the minuses worth noting expensive repairs. Consumables (and thissilent blocks) often change in the collection - a lot of parts are non-separable. To 70 thousand kilometers come into disrepair anti-roll bar. Repair cost withconsideringWorks and spare parts - 45 dollars.Alsofront pads wear out for this run. However, they need to be changed correctly, otherwise the bracket on the bumps will emit a characteristic sound. By 90 thousand can tear bootCV joints. The price of the original "gum" 5 thousand rubles. On a run of 85.1 million failsilent blockssuspension. But they change with the lever assembly.
Unfortunately, the suspension is not happy smoothness. In large pits, you can pierce the suspension. To get at least some comfort, the owners install morehigh profile16 inches tires. On the highway carleadsyourself okBut it is up to 100 kilometers per hour. After begintoughrolls. The SUV doesn’t go into corners because of the high center of gravity, some “cure” this problem by installing morehardshock absorbers. But in this case, the suspension will be completely clamped.
As for all-wheel drive, it is implemented for the electronic clutch "Haldex»Traction along the axes is distributed in the proportions "50 to 50". This allows you to reach the snowy courtyard and drive through a wet primer into the forest. But this system has a minus - there are no locks. Therefore, on the roads are out of the question.
So, we found out what the Ford Kuga crossover is. It is one of the fastest cars initsclassroom. But while the future owner will face a lot of trouble - from high fuel consumption andfinishing uphigh cost of maintenance suspension. This machine will be expensive in content. When buying a car "with hands" it is important to check the integrity of not only the body, but also the aggregate part. Jerks when shifting gears and modes should be excluded. If the suspension rattles, the cost of repair is clearly not happy - it is better to refrain from such instances. As for new cars, they can be bought at the price of 1 million 170 thousand rubles (and this is on the front drive). Maximum grade with all-wheel drive is available for 1 million 800 thousand rubles.
