  1. Looking to Buy

    Hi, My partner has her heart set on a Ford Ka and is looking to spend around £1,000 - £1,500 to get herself on the road. I've been doing some sleuthing to find out the common faults to look for, and thus far found out: * Central locking problems * Engine Fan running continuously * Brake fluid light (corrosion on connection) * Brake pedal slow return * Rusty door sills * Spark plugs "Getting stuck" - needs drilling out * Wet passenger foot well (Pollen filter) * Gear changes between 3rd and 5th I've yet to find out when belts need changing and what the service schedule is, however i wondered if anyone could advise anything else i should look out for? Thanks Dave
