I am looking at buying a 1.25 Zetec Fiesta for £695 out of my local paper.
The advert reads as follows:
'FIESTA ZTEC 1999 65,000 miles, MOT Nov 14, Tax June 14'
I have spoken to seller over the phone and she is the 3rd owner from new - however she has only had car since December last year. She says she is selling it because her beetle was written off but she's now replaced that with another beetle (this car was only a temporary measure).
She also says her husband is a taxi driver who knows abit about cars and says Fiesta is a good one.
Could anyone advise me what to look out for when looking the car over (ie. known problems)?
