I'm stuck with the Kia.

The entitlement to no congestion charge resides with the car now for 3 years so can't change it without losing the exemption.

Not the end of the world but would have much prefered to have a Fiesta!

The delivery date is almost always estimated and was in this case.

To be fair to them, I knew and accepted this as a calculated risk - which at four months I thought was reasonable for a mass market car.

I was wrong!

Very first post here. Been looking at comments on the facelift Fiesta for a couple of weeks and ordered one last week.

I need a sub-100g car for school run into central London. Pretty short journey which doesn't suit a diesel and really can't face a Prius or electric car which are, in any event, very expensive for limited capability. Currently have a year old Kia Picanto which does the job but not much more - I avoid taking it out of London at all.

Ordered a 5 door 125 Ecoboost Titantium X last week through Drivethedeal with all options bar boot floor and spare wheel. I'm in no rush and have been quoted 10-12 weeks for a factory build which I'm happy with - more interested in discount than delivery!

Found this forum very helpful and can hopefully contribute to it as an owner as well as benefit from it in the future.
