The Fiesta — its a cool car but very slow I sold it about a year ago because it very rusty. Also not much cargo space. And you only can drive it 4 persons on board. And then every one is practicly on top of each other

Pros: its cool and goof looking

Cons: the are rusting very easely

Only Use It If You Cant Afford Better. — Well when you floor it your speed stays the same for 12 seconds. Build quality is horrible it rusts very fast and you can hear everything that is going on outside. but it is cheap to own and drive. Over and out.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its low mileage.

Cons: if you crash you will probably not survive.

One Of The Best Little Run Arounds. — It is small, nippy on the road, is excellent condition for it's age and doesn't cost much to fill the tank and i also get plenty of miles to gallon. Even around town. Not bad for a 1st car. x

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap to run.

Cons: can't think of any.

Ford Festiva — This is a pretty neat car. Cant see it being helpful in anything besides a cheap transportation. Thats why i cut the back off. get some more air into the car and a little more useful for moving things. These things are surprisingly loud too. Has a deep growl that shocks me every time i start it.

Pros: Sounds great, made it thave the top cut off

Cons: its no toyota van

What A Car — absolutely brilliant quick superb handling and 1 big old barrel of laughs. no wonder im banned from davidstow and went through 2 sets of tyres in just 6 months. the 1.1 is quick considering the size but xr2's are a completely different kettle of fish lol

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

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing

Good Little Car —

if your looking for a a hot hatch with that little bit extra this is the car for you. the mk11 xr2 is unlike most hot hatches you will find today in as much it does not need ££££'s spent on it to make it go round courners really well, it already does that. it's wide and low body are the best ingredients for this, that and a hard suspension. it has a good little engine to. its 1.6 engine pushes out 96 bhp and if it is in good nick you will hit 60 in just under 10 secs. which is, even by todays stanards of a 1.6 engine....pretty quick.... and this car was made in the 80's. there are few luxuries in this car, like a air con or traction controll, but only because of its age. it has all the luxuries you should expect in a car this age......... good performance, really comfy bucket seats, tons of leg room, pleanty of room in the back and in the boot. i could comfortably cruise to the south of france in this car. it's fantastic. but with every car the are it's draw backs. you have to keep the engine in good nick to keep it running unfortunatlly it's age really does start to show on that part. it also rusts a bit this late in the game. but even with these problems i love it..... if you were really commited to doing this car up and had about £3000 to spend on the engine and suspension and maybee a little bit of welding if it has not been looked after you would have yourslef one of the hottest hatches on the block.

Pros: comfort, looks, hot hatch power........ and the grin factor

Cons: little bits of rust here and there

I like the fiesta, I had one in the past it is a reliable car. It looks good, it gets great gas mileage, and it is a FORD! I would compare this car to the Chevy Cruze, or the Honda civic. Read More

I think it would be a great car. It’s just the wrong color, for me. I had a 2014 green Ford Fiesta. Wish I hadn’t got rid of it. Read More
