Great to look at, great to drive and great to own!
Someone dented the left rear panel between the fuel cap filler and the door. The dent was fairly minor, but if it had been any lower or larger it would've required the removal of the entire panel at great cost.
Otherwise, the Ka has been problem free!
The car handles brilliantly and is great to drive in (I'm a learner and yet it makes me seem good!)
Metallic paint scratches fairly easily.
Air conditioning makes the car extremely sluggish and has a major impact on fuel economy.
My only other gripe is that the power steering is very light and could do with being a touch less efficient!
The CD player is good, but I think two speakers in the rear would be beneficial as the car generates quite a lot of road noise and any music is drowned out for rear seat passengers.
We bought the car on import so we got a fully specified Ka Collection for the same price that you'd pay in the UK for the base version! I would fully recommend others taking this route as the savings are enormous!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
