What should I look for in a used Ford Streetka sports?

The Ford Ka is one of the most reliable cars that Warranty Direct has ever come into contact with, and the same goes for the Streetka. By far the biggest problem is the suspension, but don't panic, because the vast majority of this is down to careless owners clipping kerbs and bashing the wheels out of alignment.

Beyond that, the Streetka has no major problems. Its manually operated roof is very reliable, and, unlike the owners of some folding metal-roof convertibles, Streetka owners have no worries about getting wet if the roof fails.

Just be sure the interior is unmarked by water damage, as it's not too uncommon for a car to be left with the roof down in a thunderstorm. Once it's wet, the interior is very difficult to dry out completely.
