    My car

    good car to drive,and handles the road well.On average got 61mpg,thats non motorway driving which is good.The fiesta is an ok car to own but I think the interior lets it down,a bit boring in this day and age.owned the car for two years with out any problems.If you want an average car this is it,especially for the mpg.if you want something stylish and quick,this is not the car for you!

    My car

    I got this car after loosing my second car after only 73 hours to a bad car crash. It's worth mentioning my old car was silver, and I knew I didn't want another silver one. The sales people at ford were the only sales people in over fifteen car sales places who didn't try to tell me I was being stupid by refusing to buy a silver car. Mine is bright yellow.

    Okay, so whatcar says the engine is noisy. Yes. It's a diesel, they are noisy engines. Not so noisy it's uncomfortable to drive though! It's not a heavy car at all, picks up speed quickly, handles well. I honestly couldn't fault it. Running costs are absolutely fantastic! My model happens to be tax exempt, which is awesome! It's such a comfortable car, a nice size. And after a bad car crash, all the safety features it comes with make me feel safe driving this car, which is a really big deal! Honestly I love it!

    My car

    I have returned, having posted about my Fiesta Titanium X. Well I bought this month a new Fiesta Titanium X. It is Panther Black has big wheels, leather and is full of many options. The car handles well of course and the economy remains the same (51/52 average sure you get more if you travel motorways at 40 mph! Who does that?) but the build quality appears even finer, with the piano gloss black and the centre armrest gives further quality to the interior. The doors' handles and arm rests are better positioned I feel. The car is stunning in 3 door version, it boats an appearance pack which includes side skirts and ST boot spoiler. The engine is NOT harsh or clattery still can't understand why WHATCAR? has a downer on this engine? It gives economy and low car tax. The car handles as well as ever and the front grill enhances the 'look' of the car even further than before. I am clearly a fan of this little mover! I can't imagine a replacement for this as it seems to tick all the boxes! The keyless system is ingenious and the SATNAV functions simply along with the bluetooth phone. It all makes for an effortless, luxury drive.

    ...pity that the main dealer supplier has been awful!

    My car

    This was my second car and after saving for over a year I was dramatically disappointed to say the least. Before this car I had a petrol 1.1 saxo and this fiesta mad it feel like a rocket.I was perhaps ignorant in the fact the 1.6 diesel engine isnt as fast as I thought it would be and as a result will be sticking to petrols from now on. The only upside to the car would have to be running costs and looks. Although it drives like a slug and is as noisy as an elephant on steroids it is admittedly a very good looking car and I cant argue with the running costs as it would seem the tank is never ending. Unfortunately for this car I am a man of performance and this car simply didnt live up to my expectations.
