Ford Fiesta (p Reg) — Simple and effective! Conks out when pulling up at a junction at the beginning of a journey, silently, so you don't know until you can't pull away! Nippy little thing though, and comfortable as long as your not driving for too long! Looking forward to taking it camping, a reasonable size boot, and loads of room with the rear bench of seats down.

Pros: Works

Cons: Interior finish leaves a lot to be desired!

Good For A First Car — Performance wasnt its strong point, but it really wasnt built for that. although it does make it cheap to insure. i had the 1.2 Encore. build quality was ok, a few cheep plastics here and there but everything managed to fit together ok. and of course, being a ford, servicing is cheap, and was pretty reliable for me.

Pros: cheap, reliable

Cons: rear leg room, cheap interior, performance
