  1. Hello, Passed my test a few weeks ago and looking to buy a fiesta MK6 (02-08). I've been getting some quotes and the 1.25 is affordable, and is getting some good reviews for being reliable and generally one of the better first cars to get. I've done some research and the 1.25 comes with the Zetec and the Duratec engine, the only difference I can see is that the Zetec is a little faster. What other differences are there? Is it the same engine, changed slightly? Will it be more reliable, and is it the better choice ultimately? The speed difference isn't too important for me, but the cars which appear to have the Zetec engine in them seem to be more expensive (not just looking at the trim) although that might be because they appear to be a little bit more expensive. I've decided to sign up to the forum as you guys will have the expert opinion. Thanks, User26 - Happy to give any more information etc if needed to make a good decision :)
