I did quite recently. We were looking for a new car for my wife. Having one ford already we obviously dropped by the dealer. Sorry but not impressed. Ka is now bigger, handling is somewhat frightening. Maybe because I used to my bigger ford, don't know.

Fiesta on the other hand felt much better.

It's a good car, I've just bought a Zetec, it's not that great up hills, but the handling and ride is excellent for a small car. The Fiesta's better, but that is a fantastic car. If you compare the new KA to the old one, the new one's much better.

Been to look at one today . Not sure yet though. The whole point is it was small car now its getting a bit porky. Main complaint was the exhaust box. All cars now hide the rear box and pipe away. The new ka looks like it was rammed on as an afterthought. " oh no we forget the exhaust oh ram it on no one will notice " thats how bad it looked. Its moving into yaris and mazda 2 styling inside .overall its nice but a little dissapionting no where nearly as earth shattering as when the old one arrived and nothing else looked any thing like it.

agila, Hmm.

sorry for the opel/vauxhal funs here, but it never ever came to my mind to consider an opel, even as the second car :lol:

And more seriously,
did you uncle buy it to feel like a new stile james bond (that new realistic and cruel new bond they are offering us in the last two films)?

:P

Perfectly understandable, I am afraid to tell my wife the exact feagure I lost on changing my cars. ;) The younger I was the worst. but even now, she is quite happy - she has got a new car, well she was told it's hers, god knows when it is due to be changed, might be pretty soon :lol:

To be honest with you I much prefer the old Ford Ka's. Don't really like the look of the new ones.

Too right--the old Ka has style, personality, cheekiness and character--something the new one will never have.

We're on our third one now--the Sportka which is a fantastic driver's car--no loss of personality or character--just a bit more oomph! ;)

Aye I can't fault my Ford Ka. I really like the look of the old ones and you are right there is a cheekiness feel to them which I love.
Another fact I love is that it is quite girly... so it means my Dad wont be pinching it to drive all the time.
I was really surprised with how well it drives too and the space inside... I thought it would be horrbile to be honest. After learning in a Ford Fiesta (07 plate) I liked the feel of Ford and wanted to try and get something simliar and to be honest I'd say this drives better! :)

My Ford Ka has a few mods done to it. From what I have gathered it has had a spolier, side skirts and back put on. I love her and the only thing that is missing is some alloys... but I can live with out them. I am sure as well it has a different engine in. Goes alot quicker then other Ka's I have driven.... Not sure to be honest, will post some pics up soon no doubt for your views.

My plan is to have this one for a few years then get a SportKa :) they look rather fit!

That's why I can't drive ours---my wife keeps insisting that it's her car--the cheek of it--even though it is hers!

I get to drive it once in a blue moon and I love him (his name's Noddy) too! :)
