Ford may not have placed the SIM card in an easily accessible location, so removing a faceplate may be involved in locating it. There have already been mentions that the powertrain is being updated...

Welcome to the forum Paul. VR tuned has a box for the EcoSport as does Chiptuning. Not sure if they are road legal however, as sometimes they are restricted to track/competitive racing.

I'm glad that Ford is giving it a proper update/refresh but didnt expect them to go in the direction of the Active. Has there been mention of changes to the powertrain?

Curious to hear what the fix is if you have to make a trip to the dealer. I think you may have to manually turn on your heated seats/steering wheel when turning off your vehicle the previous day.

I mean they could deliver on the nameplate and make the next generation model more economical and sporty. Neither the fuel economy or styling is all that impressive when compared to competitors.

Congrats on the new car and welcome. I think the biggest change for 2019 is the move to the new 1.0l EcoBoost engine. It has a smaller displacement, which they have tried to make up for with a turbo.

If it means a more powerful entry level option then I'm all for it. Never been a fan of their 3 cylinder 1.0 and its really held back the capabilities of the EcoSport. The turbocharged engine should...

I would expect that smell to wear off after a couple of weeks of ownership. So long as you aren't seeing any significant amount of smoke its nothing to worry about.

It does sound like something is tripping your factory security system. If its doing it on every start up at least it should be easy enough for your dealer to replicate.

The Ecosport has sold more than 50,000 units each year its been on the market, so I don't think its pricing has been much of an obstacle for buyers. I do think that its quirky styling may be working...
