Im thinking for buying a Fiesta MK6 and would like some help please

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

this is my first post and I would like some advice if that’s ok?

I’m thinking of buying a Fiesta 1.4 TDCI, manual, 5 door Zetec or Ghia on a 55/06 plate, only I would like to know if there is anything I should look out for whilst looking for one? Like when should the cam belt be changed and how much will it cost to get it replaced?

This will be a second car (the work horse) as we are planning on having kids sometime soon and our first car is a Focus ST500! And would like another car to keep the miles down + if I have to go to places that I don’t want to take the ST500 the Fiesta would be great!

The reason I want a 1.4 TDCI is because of the tax! (A 1.4 TDCI will cost £35 a year) I don’t want another tax/thirsty motor! As the ST500 will be £300 a year tax and is £65 a tank of BP super unleaded fuel, which she drinks in like no time!

Any advice would be great, thank you for your time

Hello and welcome to the club mate

I believe the cambelt is 60,000 or 6 years. Dont think it is a huge job and so probably looking at £200.

Just look out for normal things like you would any car, not sure if there are any common problems with the fiesta.
