Fiesta Zetec — Good Solid Performance from the 1.25 Zetec-S Fiarly dependable given the "fix or repair daily" reputation.. well.. up until the bottom end went @ 95,000! Really Fun to drive.. could have been doing with a bit more room in the back tho! :)

Pros

sporty looks, does what i need it to, and polishes up well.

Cons

not the quickest car in the world

45

My Fezzy — bought it as my first car back in november 2006. for a first car its done me proud. the performance isnt fantastic as its only a 1.25 ltr 16v, but its nippy in lower gears when it wants to be. had a little play with bits of it in my spare time, and generally always have it looking nice and clean and shiny.

Ford Fiesta Ghia X 1.4 Zetec — A 1.4 Ghia X old mans car, but it was the quickest car I'd owned.Went well, handled well. Sadly ruined when some pillock rammed me into a tow truck puling a bus. Insurance was oddly expensive but can't fault the car as until the accident it was great.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Great Handling and looks good.

Cons

Manual window, not central locking, cassette player, no rev meter. But what do you expect for being in England.

25

Hmm — I got the 1.3L fiesta in plymstock, it had 21000 miles i bought it for £1500. It has great handling, deep blue in colour. it has cassette player but instead of replacing with cd player, i'm going to get a adaptor for my ipod. It came with new tyres and brand new exhaust. everything is manual, but there again it's a old car and we are in England.

1999 Ford Fiesta Ghia Mk4 1.25 16v Sport — My 1999 Mk4 1.25 16v Sport Ford Fiesta Ghia is my first car. I'm pretty lucky to have it for the price I bought it. A mere £995! With only 57000 miles on the clock too and nothing wrong it was a beaut. Anyway, the car is beautiful to drive; rides well and is comfortable. It has an electric adjustable height driver seat, making it ideal for short or tall drivers. I'm just over 6ft but I have plenty of head and leg room. The engine is smooth and quiet, and works wonderfully with the gearbox fitted; the gears quiet literally snap in with minimal effort. The engine is very nippy too when you apply some pedal pressure ;) The 1.25 Sport is equiped with 16v, making it quite sufficient to get to places pretty quick.My model has standard 14" alloys with pretty low profile tyres. They are pretty wide too for the size of the car. Moving inside the car, it has a lot of extras, being of course the luxury (Ghia) model. It has heated front and back windows, electric mirrors, electric windows, air con, air recycle, CD radio, driver airbag, sunroof, central and remote locking, power steering and more. The boot is surprisingly big for a hatchback. I managed to fit camping equipment for 4 people and travel to the site no problem. The outside has metallic silver paint, front sport spotlights, alloys, colour coded bumpers and door guards, and 4 doors. All in all this car is the PERFECT first car, not only does it have the basics, but it has the luxury of cars which cost a LOT more. The build quality is starting to show, with the odd rattle but it is 10 years old so has held it pretty well. The engine is quick and easy; what most kids look for in their first car. The car is very cheap to run, which you expect with a small engine. Insurance for me was high, but that's because I am 18 and male.But at the same time kind of cheap for what it was. If you are a woman this car would be very VERY cheap on insurance (you lucky people). To sum it up, if you are looking for a first car, go for a Fiesta. With a mix of luxury, speed, style, and popularity, it is a teenagers dream. I'm pretty sure any teenager would be happy with this car, I know I am.

slightly small but what do you expect its a fiesta!

Fiesta — Not the biggest or prettiest of cars ive owned but defiantly the best choice. I had the 1999 4dr LX once I replaced the stereo, put some 6x9s and a sub in it it was a respectable drive, this is the ONLY car never to let me down, never bothered to service it and after replacing standard wheels with 15in alloys it handled like a dream and believe it or not the 16v 1.25 Zetec lump was incredibly responsive all round top choice of motor thanks Ford!
