ContraQuite small

Okay so i passed my driving test a few months ago now and have been looking everywhere for a car, my first car. I looked in the local papers, went and visited garages and also went on the internet and used sites such as auto trader. I knew i wanted something small and easy to run, as well as...

Your first car. You remember it, don't you? Well, I just got mine and I love it. It's a metallic black T-reg (1999) Ford Ka Collection - which I assumed to be a Ka2, but I'm told it's a Ka3 (which I always thought was the old name for the Luxury edition, not the Collection... Oh well, I don't...

“The Black Panther”

published 30/01/2008

ProSmall and manouverable

ContraIt's a bit girly

I bought my Ford KA at the end of May 2007 after a very lengthy search for a new car. I wanted something small and girly but with a decent sized engine. Following numerous test drives of practically every make of small car in the country the Ford KA came out top. ***Versions*** There are a few...

~ ~ The hire car I booked for our recent family trip to Rome was the new model Fiat Punto. But I wasn’t too perturbed when the car hire company offered me a Ford Ka instead. I’d been intending to have a drive in a wee Ka for ages, and was supposed to have one booked on a short trip to...

ContraCan pull and lacks torque at times

I won't go deep into Clarkson mode but instead give you a real-world opinion of this car. We bought our Ford KA as a replacement for a 26-year-old Austin Mini HL. We were going to fix the Mini when it failed its MOT but decided to sell it and buy a new car. We looked around for a while, not...

ProEasy to park

ContraHeadlight bulbs are hard to change

I bought a KA collection in 2001 as my first 'proper' car. Before that I had been driving my mum's old car. I wanted a small car with air conditioning, and a cd player and preferably in silver, and that was it! So I ended up with this. The air conditioning caused a few problems at first with a...

I've been reading around the site and think it's time to attempt a second review, I can now see that my first one was a bit short and lacked some detail so here goes. I bought my blue Ford Ka back in February 2005 and wouldn't swap it for the world now. At first I was a little worried as I'd been...

ContraNo room in the back

I’ve had one of these bad boys for about three years now. Mine in particular is the most basic modern car you can get I think. As far as I’m aware the Ka only comes with one engine type – the Fiesta’s 1.3i Endura-engine. Compared to other similar sized cars, it seems to be quite quick. I have...

And so, there I was one morning. I stood in front of my 15 year old Peugeot 205 and and made my final decision. Battery was dead, even though it had been on recharge all night, and it looked like it had given up the ghost. My days of a Peugeot owner were well and truely over, and so Commarades...

It was a bad week last week. I knew it was going to be a bad week by Sunday morning. Going out to load the car with garden rubbish (enough ivy for a university), we discover a Sainsbury’s To You van has hit my Megane. It didn’t just bruise it. Nope – it took the entire front...

It was a nice sunny day early in May when I found my self standing on the forecourt of a ford dealer surrounded by cars of all models and sizes, I was quite sure It was going to be either the Ford Ka or the Ford Fiesta. I am still learning to drive at the moment, something I’ve often thought of...

Profun to drive, cheap insurance, low cost driving

Contranot much legroom in the back

I puchased my Ford KA2 three years ago, soon after i passed my driving test. I had set my heart on a KA, i had read numerous reviews in motoring magazines and watched fixated every time one came on the t.v. I had £5000 burning a hole in my back pocket, so on a bright May morning i set out car...

Contrapoor acceleration

I have to say I love this car, even if its not my own. My Mum bought an Y reg 1.3 Ka for around £6995 (I think) and duly put me on the insurance. The first thing I noticed about this car, is how incredibly spacious it is inside for such a small car. Both the driver and the front passenger have...

However once the car dealer – after much persuasion – showed me the KA and I saw the luxury leather interior and all the mod cons I was pleasantly surprised so I decided I take one for a little spin...

Contranot good for long journeys

written on 14.05.01 by andycharger "Ford are proud to announce the release of their new car for the millenium, the Ford Ka." Or so they would liked you to believe when it hit the streets 4 years ago. But it is really not their design. It was engineered,designed and presented by an external design...
