New To Her 59 Plate Fiesta Style


Recommended Posts


Sister has just turned up at my house in her newly acquired Fiesta Style, 5 door, 17 and a half thousand miles on a 59 plate, main dealer purchased. Understand the car is a 1.25 (82bhp) and presume that it is a Mk 7.

Car is a basic model, not having many of the bells and whistles ( ie aircon ) found on the posher models. Rear door windows are not powered, mirrors do not power fold etc, etc.

Can anyone please give me a " heads up " on known problems which might be experienced, regular failure items, things to grease, oil or keep an eye on in general?

Many thanks in advance, Pete.

Hi and welcome to the forum :)

You are correct in that being a 59 plate, it will almost certainly be what the community know as the MK7.

Check out some of the well-known review sites, they often have a good indication of "what to look out for":



I never had any problems with my MK7, but I know a few people had door seal issues, etc.
