    My car

    I previously owned a fiesta titanium 5dr on a 61 plate,I traded it in April this year for the new clio s media nav,hated this car and give up on it and went back to the fiesta,what a difference,the car is so solid and well thought out,I have the 100 ecoboost engine ,it ticks all the boxes very efficient and moves along very well,super Sony radio system and good quality phone via bluetooth,all in all cannot speak highly of the car,its no wonder it keeps getting top votes each year.

    My car

    This car is an excellent excellent drive. The performance from this 1.0 engine is brilliant, plenty of grunt and I think the 3 pot engine makes a nice little noise under hard acceleration. The car is well specced, the sync system is very good for listening to music from your phone and making and receiving phone calls, even though it prefers a female voice!

    A few bad points, fuel consumption - I'm only into first few thousand miles but so far haven't got anywhere near to government figures. Around town I can get upto 45, but only driving very carefully. Motorway mpg I've managed just 50mpg, if you want to move with traffic then it's very difficult to not have your foot on accelerator, even though I think 50mpg isn't bad, it's nowhere near the 75mpg claimed, but what car does and who drives at 56mph on a motorway!

    This spec of car is quite stiff on the suspension, the titanium which I test drove is a lot softer but to secure the looks of the zetec s and the black grille that only appears on this and ST spec, then it's something you live with!

    My car

    My Fiesta 1.4 TDCi Zetec has been owned from new and in 3 ½ years has covered just over 41,000 miles in mixed driving conditions; average 53.6mpg, best recorded average 68 mpg on a trip to Scotland. It is a great car to drive with excellent handling and ride quality; the only downside being intrusive tyre noise. It will readily cruise at the motorway speed limit and above and the seats are comfortable and supportive for long journeys. Tyres required replacement at 22,000 miles front & 33,000 rear. The only down side to ownership has been reliability of fuel injectors. A strong smell of diesel in the cabin at 6 and 18 months old was caused by leaking injectors; fixed under warranty. Unfortunately rough running at idle at just under 3 years old was diagnosed outside the warranty period as failure of two injectors resulting in an expensive repair bill; despite some good will assistance from Ford and the main dealer. Hence any savings in mpg through diesel ownership have been outweighed by repair costs. In summary an excellent car let down by poor reliability. Wouldn't buy another without a lot longer warranty.

    Am in love with this car: looks modern and trendy; drives really well; driven gently I get 55-60mpg extra urban.
