Feeble it isn't, but my 5-door Ford Fiesta Encore Mk4 1.3l is no sports car. I am unable to afford a car of my own and accordingly share this with my father. I simpy pay my insurance, half the cost of maintenance and (the very expensive) petrol I use. Unusually, I've experienced this car in...

Well its time for another car again! I have covered over 10000 miles in my Vectra Cd and decided to go small again. My Vectra has done me proud but rather liked the fuel and due to the change in jobs I would no longer need such a big and luxurious car. Having been around the dealers I decided to...

ProEconomical, lively and reliable

ConsNot the most individual car out there

This date in Fiesta build history provides marked improvements over earlier models. Having moved from a 1.1LX MkIII H Reg Fiesta to a newer, albeit still getting on a bit L Reg 1.3i Fiesta I cannot believe the improvements in the drive of the car when they are supposed to be of equal calibre, and...

** UP-DATED REVIEW ** My first car, which I still cherish, but I am now starting to think about bigger and better things .. only think mind you, this will keep me going for a good number of years yet, if I am not in a position to upgrade. The car is now 5 years old, and I am in my fourth year of...

“Go Large or Stay Small”

published 03/12/2001

Procheap to buy and run

Consno luxury or class

Some of you will already know that we changed our car recently. For the last 9 years we had been driving around a much vandalised and rusted up old 3 door Fiesta Popular Plus. We were living in a fairly rough area and often came out of the house in the morning to find the car had yet another...

By the time that Ford saw fit to further swell it's ranks with the Mk5 Fiesta, Britain's favourite supermini in it's previous incarnations was already popular as Pot Noodle in every town, street corner and driveway in the country. The boxy Mk1 from the seventies evolved into the slightly less...

“A great city car.”

published 08/01/2003

ProNippy and economical.

ConsSpartan interior and noisy at higher speeds.

The trusty old Focus went in for a routine service and the courtesy car I was given was the Fiesta 1.3 LX so I thought I would write an opinion for you all. Price new would be £8995, for your £9K you get an Intelligent Protection System (IPS) with dual stage twin air-bags. Remote central locking...

ConsIts a Ford

Ok so some time has passed since I told you of my Fezzie, (Why an A140? 03/03). I bet you've all been waiting with to hear of the little gem! Well, I’m sad to say that it is no more, but thought I'd give you an insight into what it ment to me. If your looking for a serious review about cost...

Consrear seatings a bit cramped

I passed my test last June and that's when I purchased my car - a silver ford fiesta flight 1.3. After wanting the newer ford models and planning to save up and buy a different car for about 6 weeks i suddenly changed my mind after realising I actually loved the car I had and would be ever so sad...

ConsPlasticy finish, could benefit from more 'oomph'

I got this car just over two years ago. A few of the car companies were in the process of releasing 'new and funky' versions of their super-minis and after some consideration decided to pop for the Fiesta. Why? Well, many reasons. The basic model has a larger engine than many of it's rivals and a...

I've had a 1995 'm' plate fiesta for the last three years and on the whole I've been happy with it .I paid £3000 for it from a friend which I think was a good deal at the time.The car is quite economic to run and I get 350 to 400 miles on a full tank which costs about £30 depending on the...

I have often been knocked for driving an automatic car and being a lad. People say there for people who can’t drive, disabled people or for women. I personally find this offensive and would like to express my view on this super little car. I personally have been very lucky with my Fiesta. At my...

ConsEngine, cheap feel

I know that in a way - I`m quoting opinions, not facts but for me - the Ford Fiesta isn`t my cup of tea. I am talk about the brand new version of course - but the older ones also get a similar thumbs down too. The heater works great, the gearchange is nice, it has a good stereo and all the...

ConsNo extras on my model

Having owned a Fiesta now from over two years in that time it has not required any major repairs and has handled like a dream. A solid clutch allows for effortless gear changes and it can handle corners at 10 miles an hour in third gear no problem. Fuel comsumption is fairly decent, and as I have...
