Airbag warning light kept coming on! Problem was finally traced to a loose wire! New clutch, twice, as first replacement one was faulty, that's it.
My third Fiesta, I'm a Driving Instructor, so considering the mileage I clockup, the few niggly problems I've had, show what a good car it is.
Other Fiestas were a 1986 1.6 Popular Plus Diesel and a 1990 1.1 L, both gave no major problems, apart from a little carb trouble with the 1.1. The diesel was a little noisy, as is my current 1.3 when revved. I recently drove a MK1 1.3 Ghia, and that was nicer to drive!
The Mistral is well equiped with Sunroof, Rev-counter, Velour Sports Seats, Driver's Air bag, rear tailgate spoiler, colour-coded bumpers and Metallic Paint.
Passenger Air-Bag was optional.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
