"Ford Ka 1.3i"

I have owned my Ford Ka for almost seven years and I have found it to be very reliable and fun to drive. At first I wasn't sure about its somewhat quirky looks, but its advantages outweigh its disadvantages. The engine is amazingly fast and responsive and it holds its own well on the motorway. It is extremely easy to park, fitting into the smallest space. The inside may be a little short on space, but the driving position is good, with excellent all round visibility; the boot is adequate and holds my month's shopping easily.
Fuel consumption is economical and insurance cost is low.
It has had some problems with the suspension bushes, but this is a common fault, otherwise it has been problem free.
Reluctantly I shall be trading my Ka in for a new one this year and I hope my next model gives me as good a service as this one has.

    review could of done with a little more info such as safety ratings, features etc. Personally hate KAs horrid things to drive, and to much black bumpers on the standard ones.
