This is my first car and I was looking for something cheap and reliable. The car was fine for the first few months then a few problems started appearing.
This car just eats oil, I have to put 5 liters in every couple of months, garage can't seem to find the fault.
The interior is not bad, simple and easy to use. The seats are quite comfy, but a bit restrictive, I'm 6ft 2" and my knees are at the side of the steering wheel.
The car is so noisy it is untrue, the engine sounds more like a diesel tractor than a 1.1 fiesta. Rattles can be constantly heard throughout my journeys.
The front right headlight just wont stay lit and blows bulbs constantly, can't be bothered to get it fixed though.
Ripped out the standard stereo and put in a nice Clarion head unit and some Pioneer 6x9's. Unfortunately some thief's stole my speakers out of the parcel shelf and left me with a whopping £150 bill to get a new lock and get the door fixed.
Overall a nice little car, Ok for people who have just passed. I'm buying a 1.6 306 next month so I will get a rude awakening speed wise, as the fastest I have ever got out of the Fiesta was 85mph and the steering wheel was nearly coming off.
