2004 Ford Ka 1 1.3 petrol from UK and Ireland
Good value for money
Loud rattling noise developed when using the fans. Turned out to be a bottle top stuck in the cooling system. Apparently dropped in during manufacture.
Very nippy around town. Holds 70-75 ish up hills in 5th, but struggles to accelerate.
Rear legroom is a little restrictive on a longer run, but quite adequate for my 40 mile round trip, daily car sharing commute!
Seats 4 students with bags comfortably.
Excellent economy. Been getting a consistent 44mpg, but currently have roadworks and a 50 limit on my daily commute so it's up to 46 or 47.
Dealer basic service is over £100 for nothing. Rip off.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
