Mk4 Fiesta Finesse Top Speed

8 posts in this topic

I have a 1.3 mk4 finesse. I CANNOT for the life of me get this car over 97... Is this the same for other cars or is it just my car is screwed?

All cars over time drop horse power and even in its hay day a 1.3 wouldn't get a whole lot more than 110mph

thats pretty much the max speed on a standard mk4 but i'm surprised the push rods didnt try and jump through the bonnet at the same time :P

Yeah it was on private land. My mate lives on an estate, and he's got the same car as I do and he can get 105, but mines in better nic and less mileage on it. It's confusing tbh..

Mileage hasn't got a right lot to do with it, some engines just have more power than others. You can typically see around 10% from the best to the worst.
