I bought this little ford number back in march, Its a fun little car that just wants to go.

From the outside it looks like a smaller version of the acclaimed Focus, its looks are not too bad. The engine is Ford new TDCI which is basically the same engine thats in the 206 and C3, it very responsive and lively, fuel consumption is as you would expect very good, it is also cheaper on tax and insurance.

Inside, the equipment you get is more than ample, air conditioning,twin air bags,IPS, EM, electric windows a excellent audio system leather wheel . There is plenty of head room i'm 6ft 2. I've not sat in the back yet but friends tell me its very comfortable with lots of leg room. Drivers position is good, there is plenty of alround visability with no major backspots.

The fiesta is responsive thru the gears except when you pulling away from a stop on a steep hill, this is where it struggles, 2 to 3 gear can be annoying as it sometimes does not want to go in. Driving at speed is where the fun begins, it is realy pleasure driving thru bends, it sticks to the road like glue and i feel very comfortable doing so, this car beats all others for its handling its a shear delight.

I'm not a Ford fan, but you seem pleased!

I don't like the look of the new Fiesta. I used to drive a 1990 Fiesta, though, and the handling in that was superb as well.

I like this car too. One of my friends has just got one. Good op.
