I feel your pain ! I had an 11 reg 1.25 zetec and it was sooooooooo slow it wasn't funny. In my humble opinion, trade it in for the 1.0 Ecoboost. I was very sceptical and was worried that going down another engine size would come back and bite me on the bum, but no, I LOVE my Fiesta. Honestly, the difference is night and day compared to the 1.25. I did a lot of research before I committed, but I am so pleased I did. Go on .... do it !!!!
I have a 12 plate Fiesta 1.25 which has only done 20,000 and I'm about to start a new job where I will only do 3-5,000 a year in it. I love driving the car except that it is very slow, especially compared to my previous Focus 1.8 TDCI.
I am something of a mechanical illiterate so not sure if this is even possible but I would much rather spend money upgrading this car than trade it in for a hot hatch, which is what I'd ideally like to drive. Is there anything that can be done to this car to put some serious power in it, or at least moderate power - engine/parts change etc.? Considering I was recently flirting with the idea of a new Fiesta ST in the £15,000 bracket, I'd be happy to pay pretty serious money if it made the difference and allowed me to comfortably enjoy this car for 5-10 years (I change cars rarely) as I'd still be making a big saving without having to change.
Hopefully something can be done to at least push this car on a bit, I mean it takes 13 seconds to get from 0-60...
Thanks and apologies for my ignorance but I guess what else are forums for
