New Streetka Owner...

Recommended Posts

Hello all...

New to forum & new to owning a Streetka Luxury and have been reading through possible nightmares that can arise with these models, have owned early fords such as mk2 escorts, mk1 & mk1 facelift capri's which were fun drives and soooo easy to work on even with a YTS tool kit !

Mine is a 2004 in blue with 73k, bought for £400 with 20 days mot on it...intake of breath !!!

Put a set of front disc's & pads on and sent it off....passed with advisories on front tyres close to limits, I thought WTF, nothing bad underneath ?

Didn't come with spare crappy space saver wheel so bought alloy with new tyre and just bunged it in the boot with a snow sock covering it.

Have done the usual as a precaution ie; HCV, thermostat housing and back flush, coil pack and plugs, oil & filter change.

Bought as car for other half but just makes me smile when I drive it, haircut sir ?
