Overview

"Very Unreliable"

Exterior and Interior

A very boring and plastic interior that doesn't inspire your imagination. Some very good features on the car e.g digital mpg read out, auto head lights, easy to use dials and switches, nice sized steering wheel. Exterior are all extras on my car such as colour coded bumpers, alloy wheels and spot lights ect. Over all not the best looking car for its age, but by no means is it the worst.

Performance and Economy

Performance from a 1.25cc is very low and struggles to get up to speed and also on motorway travel. Economy isn't the best either as I find it a very thirsty car, but that maybe be due to my none eco driving style. Tax is almost the same as an Astra 1.6 which is a better car all round.

Like to Drive

Very boring to drive. Doesn't stick in the corners considering how light the car is and how wide the tyres are. I do not enjoy driving my car and only bought it thinking it would be economical to drive and run. <

Faults and Repairs

Constantly having to repair it every 12 months or so due to the car being very unreliable. Unable to determine if this is because I bought the car second hand and am the third owner, or if this is just a Ford problem that all Ford drivers experience. Not cheap on repair so it is very handy if you know people who can do the job cheaper for you. Going to the main dealer is definitely an expensive option.
