2000 Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.25 16v petrol from UK and Ireland
A superb, well priced, nippy little hatchback!
Nothing as yet, I've only had it for two weeks.
What a superb small car! I love it, the performance for a 1.25 litre engine is outstanding, it's very revvy.
Handling is pretty good, but could do with being a little lower.
Overall I'd recommend the Zetec to anyone, my other car is a Saxo VTR, and although it's a great little hot hatch, I really don't mind when my wife nicks it and I've got the Fiesta to run around in. It's not slow by any means, the brakes are excellent and it's a great car to drive.
Well done Ford!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree that the steering is a little high it feels they have borrowed from the Ford Model T.

Couldn't agree more with the comment on Jan 2001. I've had my Fiesta for just over 4 years now and had only 1 fault which hasn't happened for over a year now?. (The water gauge was stuck in the red with 65000 miles on the clock, this occurred whenever I was after driving for more than half hour, a common problem apparently?), other than that the only other replacements were tyres and brakes obviously.
Very nippy little car, reliable, and always starts in freezing cold weather.
It's comfortable, and the only negative was it had no goodies like electric windows, CD player, air con etc.
I am now considering a new car as my no claims have built up, but it will either be the 1.6ltr version of the Fiesta or the Fiesta ST.
