In Topic: Fiesta St As A Company/motorway Car??

26 June 2014 - 02:32 PM

haha yes I agree, it's one of those standard forum threads where the op is sounding like they've made their mind up anyway and are seeking affirmation and/or justification for their decision rather than actual help with the decision!

nothing wrong with that though, I'm sure I've done it in the past and the ST is a fab car. Still not sure I'd choose one (or indeed any hardcore hot hatch) for driving thats comprised so exclusively of mway miles though.

Well it was the car top of my list yes, it is the most logical choice when it comes to model upgrade as well, its either that or go to a bigger focus which I don't need, I just wanted to see if anyone could see any glaring issues with running one as a motorway car, I love driving but I do have no idea about cars and running them as such

 What mileage are you doing? I'm guessing with a service every 6 months... and the fact that the ST is different to other Fiesta's...

But what do they actually do at your services?

I paid £18 a month for my zetec and now £14 for my Titanium!

Since March 2013 the car has done basically 40,000 miles

£60 a month for servicing?? Is this on Ford Smart Service??

Yeah, it is based on the mileage I am doing, I have a service every 6 months basically, and over two years that is 4. Why? Too high?

Clearly it's not going to be the best car in terms of economy (although not bad if driven sensibly), so it just comes down to if you want to pay the extra for the enjoyment factor.  :)

It is the only thing I lack from the current car is enough enjoyment!

No it's ever 12K or year, all the same. I think it's too frequent personally, more manufactures now are doing 18K or 1.5 years, such as the Alfa / Fiat 1.4 Turbo multi jet engines.
 
But I Have got 415 miles on a tank, I personally think the car could do around 460 tops if it's mega motorway miles but on weekends and evenings I'm out and about plus I have the curse of the A3 and M25 for my commute so my average speed is a mere 30MPH if you average more you'll be laughing, 45MPH average will probably see the 50MPG mark I reckon.

Thanks Matt! Sounds like I am going to have quite a high mileage ST after two years! But at least I can just hand it back and start again! (Ford options is what I am on) I would like have some more fun with a car when I am not working, my mum got a tricked out abarth 500 and it is such a laugh! So to find a car that I can do both in is perfect! And I can't really afford the jump up to the focus St and I doubt it's any better on the fuel!
