    My car

    This is my third Ford and to date it is the best yet.

    Fuel economy: Fabulous MPG, nowhere near the quoted average but 53MPG is still excellent. Handling: Superb feel for a small car, crisp and assured. You feel connected to the road, all four wheels right in the corner of the car making twisty windy roads great fun. Engine: The 1.0l eco-boost engine is superb and when you put the foot down you get a satisfying throaty rumble from the 3 cylinder engine. Turbo ensures that you pick up speed quickly and this is more than capable at motorway speeds. Inside: Cabin on the Zetec is a pleasant place to be. Quality feeling materials used throughout, plastic but not a feeling of being cheap. Seats are comfortable and hug nicely offering good support. Climate control and front electric windows and a great stereo. It has line in and USB connection for iPod / iPhone. This can charge on the go as well. Bluetooth is as standard and the Ford Sync system is great. Easy to pair with my iPhone and call via voice commands. Outside: In my opinion it looks grown up and I love the new grille. Nearly as large as my old Focus so you get the best of both worlds in my opinion. Boot: Not the largest boot on offer but still capable of suitcases and shopping. Can be extended with the 60/40 split rear seats, although they don't fold flat. Cost to run: Cheap, cheap, cheap. Road tax negligible and running costs the same.

    All in all, I love it. Thank you Ford.

    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!
