Took the plunge and gone from mk1 focus to this fiesta (see pic).

 

Any known problems with these, anything i should check regular.

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

You tend to get problems with water ingress normally through the roof rail seal failing

I look forward to saving money on fuel.

Can't wait until Tuesday when I collect my car, they are treating it with DiamondBright inside and out, and I also got them to throw in a free set of mats and a full tank of fuel.  Not happy there is only 1 key tho, so I will be asking them to give me another.

Ha I went from a mk1 1.6 focus to my amazing white mk 7.5 1.0 fiesta. I haven't regretted taking the plunge yet! Although looking at that mk7, perhaps I could have gone nearly-new instead of brand new and saved myself a lot of money :-P

David - Mk 1  Fiesta ?  Must be something of a classic now, there doesn't appear to be many left around .

 

Adam - Yes, my current Fiesta was 9 months old and had only 296 miles on it !  As good as new I would say.  Previous one was brand new and cost me a lot as soon as I drove away from the showroom in depreciation !   Both great cars though.

They are swapping it for a 61 plate with 6000 miles on it .

Sorry David, I can't read !    I read 'Focus' and my brain said 'Fiesta' !  I am considering a new/newish Focus as my replacement whenever  I decide.  Anyone any thoughts on the new Focus ?  It would need to be an auto.  I understand that the auto used on the Focus is of a different type to that used on the Fiesta.
