This is my first car and comparing it to other cars my friends have it is really good- reasonably cheap to buy, insure and just lovely looking. I feel like it has a lot of personality aswell and I am one of 'those' people who has named my lil car. Nice to drive, good car to get to A-B, reliable and cheap to fix if something does go wrong.

Fiestas have always been good cars, but when they brought out the mark 5 they broke the mould. It is stylish yet sophisticated, it is very easy on the eyes and alloy wheels come as standard. Right performance, that's what everyone wants to know, the 0-60 is around 14 seconds and will reach a top speed of about 113 that's not too bad for a car that's only got 1.25 litres. Straight line isn't its specialty though, its in the corners that the fiesta comes into its own, it really is smooth when... (read more)

I bought my 1.25 LX Ford Fiesta in 1999 - it was nearly new at the time with around 3,000 miles on the clock.
I've only recently sold it and the reason for selling was simply that we have a baby on the way and felt that we'd need a car with a bit more boot space (pushchairs take up an incredible amount of room). I was sad to see the Fiesta go - it had been an incredibly good car for me over a 10 year period.
Pros: Nippy around town; reliable; cheap spare parts
Cons: It's obviously a small... (read more)

Bought my Fiesta 1.25 Frestyle new in 2002, just as they were phasing out the Mk5. It was phenominal value for money compared with rivals at the time & came with with alloys, air-con, electric windows, central locking & power steering, all for under £8,000.
68,000 miles later, it is still on its original exhaust, brakes & battery. Fron tyres lasted 47500 miles & the rears 66,000. I now use it in motorsport, (AutoSolos) handling is spot on and as long as you appreciate it was sold as a small... (read more)

The Ford Fiesta Mk5 1.25 Zetec 16v is good overall, quite quick, engaging enough to keep boredom away whilst driving. Although I have personally experienced a few problems I am the fourth owner and so would probably have experienced them with any car from any manufacturer. Much better looking than mk4 fiesta. I particularly like the gear change and layout of cabin as it is simple yet seems to have everything you require and not too much as to cause clutter. Would like more torque but the... (read more)

Let ' s get one thing straight it ' s a small car ok! You see if you understand ford you understand their cars. They are designed to grow with you, all I ever get is the rear is a bit cramped or its a small boot, the Fiesta was designed for a single person or couple with a baby for which it is great cheap to run and insure cheap to maintain ideal for a young family just starting out. As you grow then buy a focus then a Mondeo, motoring journalists seem to judge cars generally rather than for... (read more)

Mines a 1. 25 zetec-s so all I've said is based on that model. But this car is rapid; only 2 cars out of bout 10 or 11 have been able to keep up with it one was a 4. 2 Audi and the other the new Jaguar XF. They kind of blew me away completely but that ' s expected. Others have been pug 206s saxos the odd done up Corsa and my favourite a 2.0td Volvo. No idea how I managed to get a fiesta going quicker than a 2 litre lump but it happened. So basically it ' s a really quick car. If you ' re... (read more)

I purchased this Ford Fiesta Mk5 new in 2001 and owned it for 4 years. It's an attractive looking car inside and out with a good quality interior and a decent sized boot. The space in the front is pretty good for a small car even if you're a taller-than-average person but you'll have to slide the seats back, seriously restricting leg room for those unfortunate rear passengers.
The engine is nippy for around town driving and it's an easy car to manoevre and park. It's also a very reliable... (read more)
