    My car

    I have owned my Ka since July 2004. I find it very thirsty for petrol, and I am very disappointed.

    I find the vinyl rear window very annoying in the ice and snow, and impossible to de-ice or scrape. However, I have found a good trade-in value against the Peugeot 206 GTi 180, which I will be collecting next week.

    I would suggest anyone else who owns a Streetka to do the same.

    My car

    I bought my Streetka two years ago and I still love it. It is great to drive, very nippy and really cheap to run. The boot is massive compared to other soft-top cars.

    I have had no complaints since owning my car, and with the roof up or down, it really does get noticed. It is great around corners, and squeezing into small parking spaces I thoroughly enjoy driving my car and would recommend anyone buying one of these.

    My car

    I've had my StreetKa for two years now.

    The first year was spent returning my car to the dealership that supplied it for a number of different problems - the main one being that the roof leaked on the drivers side.

    In that 12-month period, I had to take my car in a total of nine times - the final time was when the dealership eventually agreed that my roof did indeed leak and it was sent back to their specialist body shop in Wales for 11 weeks to be rebuilt.

    I am getting rid of my car soon because the roof has again begun to leak in exactly the same spot that it leaked from when I first had it.

    I'm not bothering to complain to Ford because I don't have the energy to fight with them.

    I hope nobody else has the misfortune to own a new Ford StreetKa - if I could have seen into the future, I wouldn't have touched this car with a bargepole!

    My car

    I bought this car new three weeks agoand its restored my faith in motoring. I've never had a soft top before and you can't help driving with a big grin on your face. Get used to plenty of attention too as i'ts still quite a rare site on the road. My Streetka in storm grey gets more admiring glances than ten a penny Porsches!

    The hood can be raised and lowered in 15 seconds, much quicker than an electric one and with the UK weather speed matters! The Luxury version is the one to go for as you get leather heated seats which means you will get more use of the car in colder weather. Air con and heated front screen are also standard. The cabin and boot are surprisingly roomy, the dealer said the boot is bigger than the Audi TT.

    I'm so far finding the car more fuel efficient than the Fiesta I had previously and its comfortable enough to drive to London and back (200 miles) which I do weekly. It's noisy above 80mph but this is to be expected with a fabric roof.

    It's very nippy around town although oddly has a large turning circle compared to other small cars. I think this car is a bargain if you can get a good deal. Ford were doing an offer which knocked nearly £3k off the list price meaning I paid £11k. Its worth every penny. Only gripes are the lack of interior stowages and a remote boot release.
