2001 Ford KA Collection 1.3 from UK and Ireland


Nice little reliable car



General Comments:

This car is fast for its size and well capable of 100 mph. There is a lot of noise when travelling at 50+.

The interior is comfortable for a car its size. The car is suprisingly uneconomical for its size and uses more petrol than I imagined.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

2001 Ford KA Collection 1.3 from UK and Ireland


Nippy without the air conditioning on!


No problems really apart from it has a bit of trouble getting into reverse, which I am going to discuss with my dealer.

General Comments:

It's a good, nippy little car, got it upto 90-something miles an hour and it doesn't even shake! Woohoo!

I think the seat height adjustment should be electric. Why do it if it's not electric!!??

Air con kills the acceleration. When air con is on, it takes a while to get a bit of speed up. Very annoying.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Over a year on, after this review.. I have had more problems... a leak on the passenger door. Dealers deny all. try and fix it, don't do anything, still leaked.

Tried to charge me, it was only a year old in march! Pillar stickers are now peeling off, making it look rubbish, and now it has been recalled so I have to take it back in again...

This car is falling to bits slowly, but surely... only a year and a half old.. owned since new. Will never buy a ford again. Ever.

Wouldn't want another even if it was given to me! Three years after buying it I added up the receipts of getting it fixed - £1200 not including bits and pieces and lost receipts! Head gasket went after having it for just 2 years - Ford paid half the bill, still had to find £200 myself! Whatever you do don't go for an options deal - complete waste of money - although it sounds good at first. Can't wait to part exchange it - next car Citroen Saxo Furio!
