1995 Ford Fiesta Si 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Great looking car that drives superbly
Started stalling when it was cold. Found out that it was only firing on 3 cylinders.
Flasher unit for the indicators stopped working.
Rear wiper fuse went, causing fire in the steering column.
HDT leads needing replacing.
Radio stopped working, replaced with a Kenwood MP3 player.
Replaced spark leads.
This car is very quick, however whenever you put your foot down, you can virtually see the petrol gauge drop. It literally eats petrol. On a full tank, which is about £25-£30 of petrol, I get about 170-200 miles.
The interior of this car is absolutely brilliant. It very comfortable, and the sports seats hug your arms really nicely.
All the things that have gone wrong with the car so far are just general wear and tear things that are bound to go wrong at some point.
The car drives superbly on the motorway, and this combined with the comfortable interior makes long jouney's easy to do!
The suspension on this car is just about the hardest I've ever felt in any car. You make sure you drive damn slowly over road humps! However, again the seats help to counteract this.
The car seems to rattle from everywhere. However I've just spent ages looking around the car to see what is causing it. When I sort out one rattle, another seems to be made, but again, when a stereo is on, they are unnoticeable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
