spiralgoddess13's review of Ford Ka 1.3 Luxury

★★★★★

“This Ford Ka 1.3 is an excellent first car or small...”

written by spiralgoddess13 on 18/07/2007

Good Points
Economical, fun, stylish, nice sound from stereo, A/C, cheap to run and maintain, low insurance group, excellent cornering due to low centre of gravity.

Bad Points
Small boot, not brilliant for long journeys/motorways but perfectly adequate.

General Comments
This Ford Ka 1.3 is an excellent first car or small runaround. If you have a BMW or 4WD brain and buy one, obviously it's not going to be good enough. But for those of us who like style and economy over status and are concerned about the environment, it's brilliant.



I love the leather interior and chrome exhaust of the luxury model which adds a little glitz. The engine could be better but hey, you get what you pay for and in this price bracket it's an intelligent choice on many levels. You will not end up paying through the nose for repairs like Citroen and Peugot for example. It's economical but also has bags of character.



Costs about £30 to fill the tank (1/2 the cost of a 1.8l engine) and I can drive from Aylesbury to Truro (264 miles) on less than 1 tank which is great value. If I drove slower it would probably do even better.
