2001 Ford Fiesta Zetec-S 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Put the fun into driving
Nothing has gone wrong as yet.
This car makes driving fun again, with cheap insurance and relatively low running costs I'm thinking of buying another so my fiancee` and I can have a race.
The only downsides are that the interior is generally poor quality and a little bit disappointing considering the price. There isn't even a light in the glove box!
The thing I love best about this car is racing people at traffic lights. It may not have the top end speed of other cars, but at the lights its seriously quick. My personal favorite's are Citroen saxo's both VTR and VTS models, it leaves them for dead.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a Zetec S and love it, but I'm sorry it will NOT beat a well driven Saxo VTS in a straight line. It's nearly 20 brake down, and heavier! 0-60 time is 2 seconds slower.
I love my Zetec S to bits, but there are quite a lot of cars out there that will kill it off the lights. Mind you, there's not much to match it in the twisties.

I guess the VTS was either badly driven or even worse a VTR sad act with a VTS badge. :)
Anyway I have more fun going round roundabouts than straight lines lately.

I have just bought a 2002 model Fiesta Zetec S and I feel that it is both stylish and quick!!
However both the Saxo VTS & VTR are nice cars, but they are becoming too common!!

'The thing I love best about this car is racing people at traffic lights'. Don't tell me, you wear a baseball cap backwards and play loud dance music that can be heard three miles away. If I were next to you at the lights I would just let you go in the knowledge that my tyres, brakes, gearbox and engine will last an awful lot longer than yours.
Having said all that, the Zetec-S is still a cracking looking car, but won't become a classic like my 205 GTi.
