My Ka — performance was quite good.Acceleration was ok for a small engine. Considering the age when i got it it ran really well and needed no work done while i owned it. Was good on petrol. Seat material was a bit dated but comfy, other than that it was a good-looking car. Really fun to drive

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: great fun to drive

Cons: poor acceleration on hills

Ka Better Than You Think. — The original Ka had a bit of a split in opinion regards looks, but if you like it, it's a good car to own. It definitely suits someone buying a first car, or wants a cheap city runaround. Although you wouldn't expect it, the performance the Ka provides is incredible for its size, price and general build. The handling is outstanding and sticks to the corners with no question.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nippy, Excellent handling, cheap to run, fun to drive

Cons: Struggles from 60-70mph.

My First Car, The Ford Ka — Well, when I told my friends what my first car was, I caused more upset than Georgia and Russia. Although that said it had only 26,000 miles on the clock and had hardly seen a motorway. So looking back, I think it was a good choice. The performance is similar to that on a Go-Kart, although the acceleration is more Captain Slow than Clarkson's POWERRR! Over the past 3 years I've had no build quality issues to report apart from the cars love of rust around the door (which I've heard is something all Ka's suffer from). But, the best part is the running costs - low insurance, tax and petrol. Honestly, as we head into a world of million pound petrol, if driven carefully I only need to refill the tank every now and then. Its a fantastic first car, and even though everyone still classes it as a 'women's car' I think it looks pretty good for something that's over 10 years old.

Pros: Excellent running costs at a time when money is everything

Cons: Not the largest fan of the motorway as it will shake a tad when you go over 70...

Heaps Of Cheap Fun —

Ford Ka 1 1.3l petrol Is a car for round town. Motorways aren't it's forte, but it'll still get you to 70 without that much drama. Is great fun when on the country lanes (if you know what you're doing) - they do rally these after all. Not saying it's a fast car - coz it isn't - but it's good round the bends. It's got enough torque through town to not need more than the power it has to be manageable and not annoying. Though ABS is essential I'd say - it's easy to get exuberant in it and come unstuck when you want to stop. It has a lot of front interior space (I'm 6'2" and had 2-3" spare headroom), and wasn't too bad on leg space - but only if there's no one in the back. With the backseats down it has a surprising amount of cargo space. You can't see the bonnet (coz there's not much of one), and the rear bumper is almost where the rear window is - parking is a doddle. If you can see it you can get closer =o) Have parked in a space with 1" spare one end and about 12" the other. Had comments of "did you push that in sideways?!?" Was so impressed with 1st one that I had it for 2 years, then bought another with better options on it. Only sold it 4 years later to get current car coz it was too low for disabled wife.

Pros: Heaps of fun if you got the guts to lob it around the twisties.
Cheap to buy, run, insure etc. Good town/shopping car.

Cons: Needs ABS (optional extra on all but most expensive).
Wont take 4 passengers comfortably (unless all children)
