Well it's a bit late if we think they're bad, really! :)
I've always found the 1.25 a real disappointment, especially after it goes
so well in the previous generation Fiesta.
On balance I like the Fiesta although if I had to have one myself, it would
be a TDCi without even batting an eyelid at the petrol range.
I could repeat my review of it, but, surf along to www.dervman.com, then zip
along to Car Reviews on the top, then pick "mark five Fiesta" along the left
hand side. I've also commented on the 1.25 we borrowed in my latest Ka
Thank You - well I would not have asked but the dealer has not yet supplied
me with the car manual so am interested in any fiesta finesse info (good/
bad/ indifferent) even the suggestion that the car is for fat birds, which
is fine as I am just a little underweight after my cabbage soup diet plan.
It's such a vast question to ask, some people might start with "always check
the oil and tyre pressures on a weekly basis" whereas others would comment
to the effect that "nice handling machine, in a couple of years watch for
the idle control valve getting gummed up..."
But hopefully I have helped! :)
