Advantages: Fuel Economy, Nippy, Very good handling, Build Quality, Price, Disadvantages: New model fiesta due end 2008, so poss depreciation increase
...can get are far far better than the competition. Leather seats to boot!!
Ford have never made a supermini this good. One important tip though is to only buy the very punchy 1.6tdci. The 1.4tdci is slow and actually worse on fuel economy in comparison to the bigger but slightly more frugal 1.6tdci. Cracking value for money...

In the 1990s the Fiesta became bigger & lost its way to stiffer competition such as the brilliant Nissan Micra but it always remained a big seller.
THE NEW FORD FIESTA
This latest Fiesta which was released in 2008 has catapulted the Fiesta back to the top in its segment of the market. No longer is it just...
Advantages: Running costs; driving experience; nippy engine, sporty looking Disadvantages: The diesel engine noise is sometimes intrusive a low speeds
...commute involves a lot of stop-start driving.
Insurance is cheaper than any other car I have previously owned.
Road tax is ridiculously cheap at £35 per year.
Its 1st 12.5K mile service cost only £89 from a ford dealership
Perfect so far.
The nicest car I have owned so far. A great compromise between performance and economy.
Sporty looking and easy to live with...
