2002 Ford Ka 1.3i Endura-E from UK and Ireland
Cool, Quick and Funky!
Nothing so far.
Well I have only had the car for just over a week. Fingers crossed for its long-term reliability though.
This is one of the best cars I have ever driven.
It pulls away at junctions rapidly and without fuss.
Cabin is imaginative and logical, looks smart on the outside (mine is metallic panther black)
Space is very suprising, I'm 6foot 4" and have no problems getting comfortable and there is evan a good amount of room for a couple of people in the back.
Boot is a good size also.
The KA is basic, but I don't think it matters because its fun to drive and its driving abilities are excellent.
I strongly recommend this car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Glad you are enjoying your KA. I am thinking of buying a KA, can anyone tell me what the potential reliablility issues there are with these cars?
Just an update on this KA:
Its now been 9 months since I got my KA and has done another 13,000miles! in this time the steering rack failed which I believe is a common fault, cost £250 to replace which was cheap judging at what others have paid! Also its had 2 new tyres, new brake pads, service (just routine stuff) and a suspension bush and coil for its MOT which came to £75. I still think the KA is great and don't think its needed that much work.
My Ka is now on 41,000miles! so has done a lot more since I wrote the review,. The clutch was making a clattering noise- but still worked, resulted in a new clutch and the steering rack failed again, but this was due to a faulty manufactured part so was replaced free of charge. The car hasn't let me down and never fails to start.
The car is now at 55,000miles and since the last comment has had its MOT which require £140 worth of suspention work to pass... not bad all things considered.
