1994 Ford Fiesta Flight 1.3 litre from UK and Ireland
Excellent cheap car
Not much has gone wrong with the car. The previous owner had had it serviced regularly, and it was in good condition when bought.
Clutch at 60k miles, but not a problem because the car had been used in town a lot.
Battery at 75000 miles; not unexpected at that age and cheap to replace.
Some welding was done on sills for MOT. Rust showing in all the usual Fiesta places but not terminal.
Drivers' door lock wore out.
Finally, the power steering rack started to leak. Cost of replacing it was more than the car was worth.
Very reliable small car
Fuel economy just over 40mpg
Engine a bit noisy but very reliable
Mechanically good and cheap to insure and service
Cheap motoring has given me excellent service. I am sorry to see it go.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
