I had purchased the mk4 zetec 1.25 as my first car as was rather impressed with what i was getting. It is a very nippy car when driving down hill but uphill, its performance is pretty awful. Steering is very light. Quite a gready car petrol wise. Electronics were sound. Known as a lasting car and very cheap to maintain. Modifications can be easily added to the car such as new sound system which i did (ghet the correct removal kit, cables and bracket/fascia)
Unfortunately i ended up writing the car off. A quietly known fault is that the back end kicks out on some of them. The car loses grip and the rear end swerves heavily and unfortunately i became a victim of it and smashed the front up.
Be that as it may, i got unlucky.
