1997 Ford Ka 2 1.3 from UK and Ireland
92,000 miles in 2 years! Not bad!!!
Rear suspension struts replaced under warranty after 3000 miles.
New clutch at 56000 miles (I used the car for driving instruction).
Carpets became baggy.
Some minor rusting/poor paint work.
I loved my Ka and miss it very much.
My sister has just bought a 2001 model and it seem to have lost a bit of its character.
I replaced it with a 1.2 16 valve Fiesta which had a great engine, but was nowhere near as fun.
Mine was painted a colour called Electric Current even the paint was cool!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

May I ask how on earth you covered 92,000 miles in 2 years in any car, let alone a Ka?! That is a remarkable feat, well done!!

Well, I was a driving instructor for the first year and covered 60-000 miles (Many with pupils at the wheel) and went back to Uni for the second year 30-000 miles. Now considering a SportKA.
