Impulse buy! :lol: I was looking for a Mini and saw this gorgeous babe and thought, yes i'll have that!

I've had 2 Ford cars before and they were ok. Reliable and British so I thought I would stick with them.

My old man had a Sierra, Mondeo and 2 Focus's up to now, Mum has had 3 KA's including her current KA sport so always had them in the family and always liked Ford, loads of dealerships, easy to source parts etc and not too expensive to service and had a MK5 and MK6 before, has MK6 Ghia and was looking to change car and I say the MK7 image in a paper way before launch and knew I had to have it!!

I LOVE the MK7

I've never had a Mk 5 or 6 but I had an XR2 Mk2 and 1100 Ghia Mk 2 and they were both great fun and dead reliable too.

I have to agree though that the MK 7 is far and away the best Fiesta ever. ;)

Fiestas for the UK are assembled in Cologne and Valencia!

But the reliability bit is OK. I've mostly owned Fords since 1959.

  • Ford Model: 99 Focus 1.8TDdi LX/Ghia [AC] Estate

Posted 24 June 2009 - 09:53 AM

I don't really know to be honest. I definitely wasn't convinced by my Dad, he has a vendetta over Ford because he once had a bad example of a Mk.3 Fiesta and now he thinks all Fords are the same. :rolleyes:

I don't know, I was just looking for a car in March and my uncle suggested looking for a Focus. He said they were real "driver's cars". I automatically ruled them out in the past because I assumed the insurance would be too much on them. But I checked on confused how much a diesel Focus would be and it was only group 4!

So over the next week I looked on AutoTrader. Looked at all the diesel Focuses in my price range. And the best one happened to be this red estate. Which is still going strong after 3 months and a further 7,000 miles. :D

So, I'm very happy with Ford at the moment. Would definitely buy another.

You need to ask - just look at one in Squeeze Green!

I always buy a car with my heart and not my head and who could resist a nicely kitted up Mk7 Fiesta?

I will own another Mini or VXR in the future but for now I'm very happy with my Fiesta. B)

Are you sure that it is wise to long for the VXR Artic?

Typically being female, it was the looks that drew me to it initially last year. After much research I fell even more in love, reviews etc etc then seeing MY one in the showroom, then being shown the bluetooth and other gadgety things like that AND THEN the test drive in a black Zetec-S I was sold :D Well to be honest I was sold the moment I saw it but I'd like to think I'm not that fickle :lol: Plus my Mum owns a reliable (albeit very slooooowwwww...) Ka and my Dad had a Focus Zetec-S for many years and it never had any issues. So Ford have made a good name for themselves in my family.
