In Topic: Fiesta Metal Drum Brakes Or Drum Breaks ?????

20 August 2012 - 07:48 PM

I have to admit to being disappointed in the brakes. Mine too are very noisy which prompted me to have a look. I have far too much brake travel before it really bites. I take the point that 90% is the front brakes and agree so wonder if it's just my brakes that are very poor. I tested it today and reckon I have 50% of pedal travel before the brakes give sign of slowing me down. Surely this can't be right?

Does this sound familiar or should I take it in. I'm convinced that it wouldn't pass a brake test.

Thanks for the info. To be honest, I'm amazed to see drums on a car that costs £16k... Bazar that I didnt notice.

Do the Zetec S's have drums or calipers?

I think the most I ever paid was £600 when I was a kid. Although it was for a Renault 5 TL... with a whole litre of power.

Times change and young'uns have to pay through the nose just to insure a car let alone buy the thing. I'd be still on the bus if my insurance was £2400.. First car only cost 500 notes..! However that was 20 years ago when you could buy a house for 3 grand...

Jesus £2400.... WOW... I know life is for the young.... but there are some benefits to being 39... Paid £450 for my fully comp and was gutted...

the Fiesta Metal however is well worth the expense.. Enjoy..

Hi - I think you'll be delighted with the Metal. Had mine for about a week now and really enjoying the little car. Although I noticed that you're 19. My insurance have told me that anyone driving the car needs to be above 21... May be something to look into...!
