The only problems I have had with this car is slight corrosion around the rear wiper blade.
Also the interior clock is broken and the display on the stereo, although these parts are standard as bought and are 15 years old, so its not surprising they have seen better days.
Otherwise the interior is very clean and no working parts such as electric windows, indicators, fans & heating etc are broken.
This car has fantastic acceleration and is great fun to drive.
I picked mine up quite cheap at just over £500, it is completely standard which is pretty unique as most performance fiestas are modified.
I have not yet decided if I want to modify this car because nothing really needs doing, I think it looks & drives great as it is.
Even though the car is 15 years old it drives like new, the car is in good working order even though it was sat redundant on a drive for 6 weeks before I bought it.
The car has a 1.6 litre 8 valve injection engine and really has some pull to it for such a small car.
Id love to try out the 16 valve 1.8 engine model, but that would be too expensive for me on insurance.
Even though the insurance was quite expensive its definately worth the investment, especially as its not a very expensive car to buy.
I bought the car without tax. Road tax was quite expensive for this car at around £95 for 6 months!
Overall this car is a great runner regardless and I would definately recommend it to someone who is looking for a cheap performance hatchback.
