Excellent

Economical on fuel and a very comfortable drive

My squeaky gear stick!

This review discusses the newer model of the Ford Fiesta Zetec and not the one as shown in Ciao’s photograph. However, I have not made a product suggestion for the new model due to the fact that it has the identical specification. Have you ever heard of the expression “Found On the Road Dead?” If...

“A Fiesta Dilemma”

published 13/01/2005

Lovely Car

Will it stand the test of time?

I bought my Fiesta 1.4 Finesse, Durashift, brand new, in October 2003. It was Ford's latest attempt at producing an automatic small car after their earlier disasters with auto gearboxes. My car is a five door, I would have preferred three doors but at that time the durashift was only being...

The old Fiesta look.

I bought this car in June 1998 with 6,000 miles on the clock. From the moment I drove it out of the forecourt I knew there was something special under the bonnet. The 1.4 16 valve engine that this car comes with has a lot of poke to it. In the lower sub 3,000 rev ranges there is enough pull in...

“LXcellent”

published 28/02/2004

Well built, roomy, good running costs

A lot of plastic in interior

Around a year ago I wrote an opinion on the Peugeot 106. I had just bought one from new at a decent price and I liked it. However a year later and it’s funny how you can easily fall out of love with something. That especially applies to cars, you start by liking them confident in your choice...

“Fies-tastic”

published 20/10/2002

Handles well, pretty nippy

No personality, and no more

I hated my Fiesta. It was a five door, five speed, red Ford Fiesta with the 1.4 litre Cfi engine. It was twelve years old and had done 112500 miles. The reason I hated my car is this...It was twelve years old and has done 112500 miles. When I bought it, I was nearly 25 years old, and I would...

appalling fuel economy, cramped in the back

The Fiesta has always been a successful car, arguably more so than almost any other supermini in Europe. But does this new, bigger, and better fiesta have what it takes? Oh, yes it does. My model is around £14,500 of Fiesta Titanium 1.4l petrol, with leather pack and bluetooth audio system. We...

“"Fiesta Fiesta..."”

published 05/04/2005

A good solid car, with a sporty side if needed

Probably won't stand out in a traffic jam

Ford's update to the classic Fiesta shape has been around for a few years now, and as usual with most Fords, can usually be found on practically every street...and it's easy to see why. The new Fiesta is a mark of the evolution of Ford itself over recent years, taking a lot of inspiration in...

“Fast, nippy...and noisy”

published 10/04/2005

Nippy, good accelaration, reasonable sound system

Noisy, a bit plasticy, expensive

I passed my test 1 year ago, and, having learnt in a petrol fiesta, and then having driven my fiance's car once I passed (a Clio - and having driven my fiance up the wall in the process), my work kindly gave me a shiny new Fiesta last year (I could have any car I liked, as long as it was a Fiesta...

Now we have just gone out and taken advantage of a cracking deal that ford are currently offering to the public. A brand new fiesta with air conditioning for free all for £8,995!!! Wow! I hear you cry. But what am I getting for my money? Well, the deal is not quite what it seems. the good price...

I bought my Fiesta from a dealer for £3995 (from window price of almost £6k!) with new tyres all round, and in presteen condition. I've had it approximately 2 months now, and have already covered almost 4000 miles. It is an absolutely fantastic car all round. Great town/city car, very easy to...

If you ask anyone anything about me, the first word that will probably come to their mind it "Fiesta's." I can't get enough of Ford's mid-size small car, from the earliest mk1 900cc Popular all the way through to the new 2006 ST. The mk4 is perhaps not on the Fiesta's that will be regarded as a...

“Fiestas should be fun”

published 24/02/2005

fast, nippy, mega easy to drive

bit too small for us and the dog

We have had our fiesta for just over 12 months now, bought it new and after having it for a year thought I would share my experience with it. First of all, I have a few ford cars, but this is my first fiesta. It is the Fiesta zetec 1.4, 5 door version in metallic blue, which we were told was the...

“Cheap and cheerful”

published 16/02/2001

Cheap to run, insure and maintain

A bit basic

The Ford Fiesta was the very first car I ever owned after passing my test in the early 1990’s. I was restricted in what I could buy by the very high cost of car insurance, as they were looking for nearly the price of the car again simply for the privilege of driving it on the road. So I had...
