"Ford Fiesta Zetec"

I have now had my Ford Fiesta Zetec engine size1.4 for three months and have been very pleased with it so far.

Although it is a small car i find that the inside is spacious and you can fit three people in the back without to much bother. There is a lot more room than my old car which was a VW Polo.

The interior is very nice, especially the radio/cd player which comes as standard with the car. Im also impressed with the electric windows and power steering, both of which i have never had the pleasure of before. It's true that once you have tasted power steering you can never go back. The digital display is also a nice feature.

The car is very nippy especially when moving off in first gear so you have no problem pulling out at busy junctions. Acceleration is also good making overtaking easy.

The handling is superb which is a big plus for me. Fuel economy is reasonable for the size of engine and it holds 45 litres of fuel. On a full tank of petrol i get between 350-390 miles.

Another benefit i find is the cars low insurance group. It is group 4 so very inexpensive to insure. The car also qualifies for a lower road tax than normal saving more cash which is nice.

The only downside so far is that the car is slightly noisey, especially when driving in windy conditions when there seems to be a whistling sound. Also with the car being smaller you do feel the full effects of the wind.

Overall i would rate it 8/10
