Pros

Light, nippy, handles, cheap, simple, relaible and reasonably practical.

Cons

Rear space not great, if I'm driving then a medium sized person has no chance sitting behind me! Wind noise is loud, but is usually the case with small cars!

The Ideal First Car — The Ford Fiesta is a great little car and has been ever since it was released! My Fiesta, the Mk5, has improved looks and styling to the Mk4 and Mk3 models, even though underneath, it still roles on the same Mk3 chassis. Performance - Even though its the smallest engine in the Mk5 range, my 1.25l 16vZetec engine is a nippy little beast! Ok, so the 0-60 time is 12 seconds, but for a 1.25, thats not too shabby and the engine noise as standard sounds pretty grunty as well. Handling wise, the car has so much grip in the corners thanks to its setup and the fact that it only weighs 920kg!!! Body roll is minimal and is probably one of the best handling superminis of its time. Build Quality - Only drove it 550 miles, but so far so good. From the service history, it seems it hasn't had a single problem apart from the usual maintainance parts. Driving it at the moment and it has no weird exhaust noises, engine problems, still moves as well as I first had it! Appearance - The styling is still quite funky today even if the design is a little oudated now. I personally love the spoiler on the back though! :) Costs - Cheap to run, cheap to insure (if I was older,) cheap, cheap, cheap!!! The most simple car anyone could want for a first car. Fun? - Hell YES! Although I've only drove this and a Mini One, but for now, yes!!!

Fiesta Mk 5 — This car has been a good car to my dad only breakin down once on him so he has passed it down to me, this car is a 1.25 litre so is very ecconomical, the appearance i find is very good lookin with some slight mods it will become a brilliant first car. i would recomend it to anyone as they drive very nicely, the fun factor with this car is that small and rather nippy for a 1.2 so makes this car very fun to drive

Cons

None

Perfect — 1.4 excellent condition, drives faster that my mothers 53 plate, no added extras. Fantasticly built, no repairs needed, front passenger wheel squeaks. but isnt a problem, its a part of it character lol. Appearance is satisfactory. Cost of ownership: maintenance not a lot, petrol drinks like an alcholic. Fantastic to drive wouldnt replace it for the world love it!!

Lots of things.

Cons

Size mainly.

Ford Fiesta Zetec-s — Looks great, sounds very nice, the inside looks a little basic however it does have air conditioning, front electric windows and a CD player. The tax is quite a lot for the engine size due to the emissions, however if you want a small but nippy nice looking run around car that has some guts, this is ideal.

Cons

slower than rival cars of similar spec

25

Fiesta Review — the fiesta has a pleasing response when you put your foot down, the braking is firm and forceful, yet feels like you are just slowing normally, it has the best handling of any car i have driven, it is a brilliant and fun car to drive, you can chuck it into corners at high speeds and it just holds on in there, i would recommend this car to anyone who wants a small fun car
