A 1.3 Finesse 3dr with a few add-ons, originally bought as an inexpensive car to buy and run - and it still is! It's great around town, but not so good on motorway journeys of an hour or more, as the cabin does become a bit uncomfortable. Unfortunately my own needs have outgrown it, but I'd still recommend it... so much so, that my mother bought a 1.25 Zetec, and my father has just bought the new diesel version, too!
I have had a 1.25lx for about 6 years, it's a 98 model. My wife loves it and I am at present trying to get her out of it to buy a new one!
The inside is sparse with cheap plastics and basic seating, however the engine is a dream - quiet and responsive.
A super little car.
It's very economical, yet it has bags of performance for such a small engine.
Reliabilty is excellent, although as stated by What Car?, WATCH OUT for water leaks - I had one myself, which resulted in my dealer having my car over two weeks as they could'nt find it.
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
