Cheapish To Run And Able To Modify — Good acceleration and done me well but it hated the winter when the coolant would not hold and the heating would not work. No power steering as you would expect with an old car. The engine was immaculate and only had 62000 miles on the clock when i traded it in for only £100. Did me well as it was my first car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good acelleration for an old car

Cons: Out dated

Nice Car But Nothing Special. — I didn't really like this car, there was nothing special about it. It drove well, looked nice and I had no problems at all with it apart from not liking it much. I sold it a couple of months after I bought it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It was nice.

Cons: It was nothing special.

Good, Cheap, Fun. — It is my first car, it has a 1.25 engine which means it takes forever to build up speed and even then it is low. I body of the car leans a hell of a lot round corners at speed.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is cheap and easy to run

Cons: weak

Ford Fiesta 1998 — Performance: 1.4L engine, 87BHP no extra mods but shifts pretty well, corners nice. Build Quality: Had new exhaust but not had to pay for anything else... Appearance: Pretty decent, few key marks here n there, nice n clean and well kept. Jelly Belly air freshener keeps it smelling good! Cost to run: Costs 35 quid to fill up, that will get about 200 miles. can't moan at that, cheap insurance so its all good...

Pros: Everything

Cons: None
