I have a fault in my 181 Ford Fiesta.

I bought a 181 Ford Fiesta 1.5 diesel and to date I have had to call the AA out three times for engine faults. Also the engine warning light comes on every few weeks, but the last time the AA came out, I was told to ignore it as they could find nothing wrong. Ford Ireland is saying they are covered because I have the free AA cover, but I have lost three days work waiting for a replacement car etc. Do you know if there have been other reports of faults in the Fiesta?

For a van with (J) N1 (J.1) C (J.5) 2359 (V.7) 217: this vehicle is currently taxed at commercial rate. If the number of seats were increased from three to include two more in the back, what are the VRT implications and tax class implications in relation to cost for this conversion? The vehicle has been imported.
