I've had my Ford KA for around 6 months now. I commute every day; roughly 60 miles, so fuel consumption and practicality were important features for me. I only needed a small car, and only use it to drive to work and back, so looks aren't that important for me. The KA is surprisingly comfortable, almost feels like a cushioned go-kart. I have the 1.3 Style, bottom of the range, so it doesn't have all the nice little finishing touches and shiny buttons. It does have electric front windows... (read more)

My Ford Ka was the first car I cought all with my own money and it was my pride and joy. In the two months I owned it it started every time, caused me no trouble whatsoever and was great with the fuel (I could drive 300 miles or so on one tank of fuel - about £35 at the time). The best part of the car was its parking. I'm rubbish at paralel parking, but could park this nippy little car with ease.
The reason I would not recomend it was that I was involved in an accident where a ford focus... (read more)

The Ford Ka 1.3 is a good city car, cheap on fuel and insurance but when something goes wrong it is sometimes expensive to repair, for example, the altenator went on mine and because the way the engine was built the garage had to completly dismantle the engine to get to it. There is a specific altenator for the car also so ends up quite expensive to replace. (read more)

The Ford Ka does have it's ups and downs, but basically it's a great car that is cheap to run and fix! The car wont let you down on insurance.
The Ford Ka 3 comes with A/C and alloy wheels as standard compared to the Ka and Ka 2. I would personally recommend every to go for the Ka 3 due to the extras you get as A/C is in high demand these days and when it's a good thing to have when selling a car on.
The Ka does have it's problems which are generally common among all Ka's, but not really... (read more)

My wife wanted a Ka and we've had it from new for 4 years. I have a big car and the Ka is like driving a dodgem. Great for local use and tight parking. It seems to go well and on the motorway and never ceases to surprise that it's stable and comfortable at well above the legal speed. We've had 4 in ours and it seemed roomy enough and went well. If there are 2 in it the seats go back and there's ample room. The boot is very small so you need to drop the rear seats for a largish case. We use... (read more)

I've had my "52" Ford Ka for 5 years and hardly spent a penny on it. It is the most reliable car I have ever owned, and has started every single time first time, even on the coldest mornings. I've just traded it in for a Vauxhall Zafira (which has a lot to live up to). I'm gutted at losing a perfectly good working car, but with the kids getting bigger the two doors and luggage space was becoming a nightmare. I would recomend this car to couples or young familys that don't need much luggage... (read more)

For starters I don't strictly own a Ford Ka 1.3, (I drive a Skoda Octavia vRS) my son does, and being a little petrol-head he purchased it with the sole purpose of modifying it into a little street-racer. Teens will be teens. However, I'll review it in standard form before he went all crazy on it.
I've always had a soft spot for city cars. They seem to be designed to do one job, and be good at it. Many people taint them as cheap super-minis, but I feel that they serve a different purpose.... (read more)

My partner has owned hers from new and to date it has been a reliable little car doing 10k miles a year. Insurance is low for a 1.3, perhaps helped by the lack of 5-seats (just 4) and by not at all being a boy racers car. For a non-sporty car the handling is great. Steering is light but the brakes feel dead. Dashboard is very plasticky but durable whilst the body seems more hardy than a French city car. It keeps up well on a motorway and is comfortable in bumper to bumper commuter traffic. A... (read more)
