Introduction: Hello there. My name is Tom and I shall be writing an in-depth review on a car I have recently purchased in the North East of Scotland which is Ford Fiesta 1.8 litre Diesel. This version is the "LX" which means it has absolutely no frills, bells or indeed whistles. I am a university...

“An Oldie, But A Goodie”

published 13/01/2006

ProCheap To Run, Reliable 300k+ Engine

ConsNoisy, Sluggish, Not As Refined As Rivals

Fiestas, and me, we're in a love, I can't get enough of them, and I've purchased a 97 1.8D to get me to college and back, (about a 60 mile round trip each day.) Now, I am a die hard petrol head, but the 50+MPG appealed, its a Fiesta, its Blue, I thought, I'll love it. Me and "Sooty" fell out...

Proreliable economical

Conslacking in features

When I wanted a small but economical car, I turned to the ford fiesta. It was a straight choice between fiesta and a peugeot 206. Price wise, for the same money I could get a newer model of used fiesta than the peugeot. The biggest downside in the diesel model is its lack of features, no leccy...

“The most popular small car !”

published 05/08/2006

ProSmall and fast.

ConsThe rust comes out to fast !!

Ford Fiesta - the most popular car in the group of SMALL cars (at least in Lithuania). Maybe thats why wee have chose this car in our research. The name Ford Fiesta has appeared in year 1976, when the first Ford Fiesta has been made (the old Fiesta). And already in 1989 a new model has been made...

Economy Superstar, 50 miles per gallon. Reliability I have had two diesel Fiestas. The first was so reliable that I bought a second. That wasn't. Oh well. So I would say reliability is variable. My current car gets through glow plugs and suspension arms like nothing else. Style Excuse me...

This car was the worst car I ever had. I got it new in 1995 on a company lease. Cost new at time £8000 The good bits: Having to think really hard here. Ok the engine gave fair economy but not particularly good for a diesel. Average mpg 38-42. Worst mpg 35 on a very long run! It was easy enough to...

Profuel is very cheap

Conswas overtaken by a tortoise

ENCORE 1.8D (1997) Bought this car about 5 months ago. It is pretty cheap on fuel, but i was suprised at the cost of insuring it, also tax is pretty unfair as it is a 1.8, but being a diesel uses alot less fuel (obviously do not take this into account so you need to pay the higher car tax) Anyway...

Consnot as quick as a ferrari

According to the used car press, this model is a dog. Well it isn't, so read on. I have been an owner of the 1.8 diesel for two years and was very sad to part with it recently after it became an insurance write off. Some twat decided to drive into it whilst it was parked at the roadside. My car...
