Thought I'd take the plunge and join your community.
I got my licence nearly 5 years ago and ever since I have been driving old, unreliable cars (going through approximately one every 1-2 years!) so after my Golf decided to pack in, I decided enough was enough and began my search for a brand new car. I began with the Corsa, which compared to my 1998 Golf, drove better but it didn't do anything for me. Then I went to Ford and test drove the fiesta. I fell in love immediately! The drive made the Corsa feel like it was behind in technology and wasn't smooth at all. After a week of umming and erring, Ford made me an offer an idiot would say no to. So come March 1st (for the 13 reg) I will be the very proud new owner of a Candy Blue 3 door 1.0T 125ps Titanium Fiesta (with front and rear parking sensors - I'm a woman, it's needed!)
One thing I'd like to ask you guys is how would you recommend driving the car for the first few thousand miles? I want to ensure I get the best long term performance out of my car and understand that new cars should be driven a certain way for a bit.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated
