Hello, i am new to the forum and i am in the market for a used ford fiesta for around £6000. I want to know for any known faults and what to properly inspect when i will do a pre purchase inspection. I  prefer to get an auto as i am used to them. And i love the Titanium ones!

Thank you

So you're after an automatic transmission with Titanium trim level. This probably leaves you in the 2002-2008 model budget wise

Seems your right! Haha, automatics mustnt hold their value as much as the manual.. Either that or the fiesta just doesn't hold it very well

Hello! I went for my first test drive today and am impressed! I really like the car and the Sony radio is really nice!

The only problem now is that because am a student the insurance is very expensive, i will wait untill June to buy a car...

Guys do you think that if i buy a 2011-2012 fiesta this year the prices will drop drastically when the new one comes out next year or this kind of cars keep their value?

I have decided today that i will be looking for both the Toyota Yaris Trend and the Ford Fiesta Titanium 3-door. I like both but the Yaris trend auto is very rare! 

I have a question about the fiesta!  On autotrader some fiestas says that the road tax is £145 and some other £180 even though they have same engine 1.4 auto. Why?

You'll be looking about £130 mark, I paid about £134 something like that for my Fiesta which is a 1.6 2011 plate for 12 months!. If you go for a newer reg think 13 and above, the tax should be cheaper, though I don't know so maybe someone can tell you that!

 

As for Toyota vs Ford... I've driven both, and the only thing I felt the Toyota offered was the length of warrenty. I wouldn't touch one personally! They feel cheaply made and you SHOULD be able to pick a decent Fiesta up for less price than a Yaris.

You're right. Looking at Parkers...

 

1.4 Titanium 3/5dr is tax band F CO/2 is 149g/km(automatic) £180.

it's because the automatic produces more CO2 than a manual.
