Wow, what a fantastic car!

I am in love! It absolutely wipes the floor with the ol' 1.2 Corsa I used to have hahaha!

Fantastic :)

Sure...from 1.2 to 1.6, it is a difference...

By the way, how's the leg room in the back? Is it easy to jump in? :D

It depends on how far back you sit, I reckon there is enough room however I wouldn't want to be in the back of the car for too long!

I'm just over 6ft :)

Ford have offered me a service plan at £20.00 a month which I'll probably take out. Everything paid for, service, parts, labour etc.

Worth it guys?

In my personal opinion it seems good...

In my opinion - not.

If this is something over 3 years where you get 2 x interim & 1 x major service you're paying £720 (36 x £20) for £547 of work (based on my local dealer - £149 + £149 + £249 - they are normally quite expensive and can be beaten by shopping around)

I agree with Nath. My first two services have been around £100 each at a Rural Ford dealer - £20 a month is way too much for servicing.

Sorry guys, forgot to mention that I compared it to the place that I live in... :D

Can I just say, that I can afford to pay 16.83 a month, then nothing for the service, than a lump sum when the service comes, and as mine is now due at Christmas, not the end of November!!

Fair enough but you'd be better off putting that money in a savings account each month then using it to buy the service at a cheaper price.

Probably here in Finland, where I live, I would pay around 50 euros/month (if not more) for this kind of service :D

That's one reason why I said that 20 pounds sound good to me ;)

Lmao I have actually been driving all day! I'm so pleased with the car. I would definitely recommend one :)

Got my mpg to around 37 - 38 and that's with me ragging it a bit!
