    My car

    A really excellent car and, I believe, only 1000 were made up to 2002, so very exclusive!

    The roof was the main reason why I decided to buy the car, and boy was it worth it! Fantastic fun in the summer, and a definite head-turner! It has a comfortable cabin, excellent ride and handling, but is quite poor on petrol consumption. It can also be noisy on dual carriageways, due to the roof, even when its closed! If you can find one, it's well worth the money!

    My car

    This car is fun and easy to drive. Like they say, it's a perfect town tool and a good buy for the first-time buyer. This car has good handling and feels quite nippy around town although, with time it can start to feel slow. It looks great inside and out and the collection model comes well equipped. The Ka is cheap to run and service and has good fuel economy but depreciates quite heavily.

    My car

    I had this car after I crashed my Scenic (not my fault). It is terrible. My son, who is one year nine months old, cries because of the shortage of legroom. I would never buy one.

    My car

    A fantastic driver's car, and once behind the wheel you forget its a small car.

    I used it for the past three years to and from work - 110 miles - and each trip never a problem.

    But after its 30k service, it started drinking oil at a rate of one litre per 1,000 miles (excessive I feel). Not according to Ford - they stated within their tolerances, which is at max 0.8 litre per 1,200 km

    Overall, not a mile muncher but for under 6 grand it's done OK.
