“Absolute piece of junk, will never buy ford again”

Written on: 13/07/2013 by Veryteedoff (1 review written)

I've had my Ford Street KA for 6 years and for the first 3 I loved it! So many features and it looked great, it was at that time the best ford i'd ever had (previously owned two fiestas and a puma). But over the past few years it has been one issue after another. Many of the things other people have highlighted on this site have all gone wrong on mine too, despite regular services, and it's costing me an absolute fortune. The door handles have broken twice on each side, both have been… Read Full Review

same with my wifes car, it was great when first bought, she loved it..... but then all the problems started, 4 door handles on drivers side, 3 on passenger , 2 lambda sensors numerous suspension bushes, wishbone arm, 2 thermostat housings, plugs ,,2 sets of plug leads , 2 coil packs, electric swith for roof not working anymore, headlight bulbs, which are impossible to fit without dismantling whole of the front of car. I just laugh about it now......

“Stuck paying for a car that I can't ever use!!!!”

Written on: 26/03/2013

So I have had my streetka for 4 years in October, I bought it thinking what a wonderful car it would be after having a Ford Ka previously which might I add has never been a problem and is still being used by my nan despite being a very old one at that. Anyway I have this streetka on finance which I pay £190 a month for, which is fine but on top of having to fork out for petrol as it drinks an awful amount of it for the size of engine. (When I can use it that is) The car tax is very steep… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/08/2009

I've not had my Ford Street Ka 1.6i long and have always loved them so was well chuffed when i found one with good mileage and in my price range (after an accident that wasnt my fault - i thought i deserved a treat) had a normal KA before and loved it to bits and never any problems!However, street ka is a different matter - how long have you got??? Cant lock door with remote because the alarm goes off (and never stops), door handles stiff and hard to get out, lights on dash on constantly (abs &… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/04/2009 by ReneeM (1 review written)

I brought my 04 Street Ka in Sept last year and I have had enough of it already! The only problem I've had which is driving me insane is that the alarm goes off whenever it feels like it! The annoying thing is - there is never any reason for it to go off.
It has been back to Ford twice already and they claim there is nothing wrong with it. I am now sending it back to them to disconnect the alarm as i can't bear to hear it going off anymore (esp at 5am!!). Whilst it is fun to drive with the… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/12/2008 by barbaravdp (1 review written)

Lovely handling, nippy and fun to drive with roof down. Bought a great window cleaning product (Renovo) for the back window which really improved visibility. Poor visibility. Unfortunately, rear window cracked while folding roof. Insurer will pay for new window supplied by Ford but nobody is able (even at Ford) to figure out how to fit it. Nobody wants to deal with it. It's even been suggested I go to an upholsterer for stitching or buy new roof!!! This is my first and last Ford car Ka… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/09/2008 by haggied (1 review written)

Don't waste yourmoney - mine was scrapped for a reason! Alternator failure at just under 3 years old and it has only done 21,000 miles! This needs replaced. Window seals keep coming off - been replaced 3 times!! Electric wing mirrors didn't work a few months ago. My glovebox broke and my drivers door handle broke. It just goes on and on!
Guzzles petrol, high tax and poor visability due to blind spots with both hard top on or the soft top up… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/02/2008 by bodecca (1 review written)

I've had my Ford StreetKa for nearly 5 years and was until last week reasonably happy barring the issues listed in the bad points. Last week whilst driving along the A3 my engine died. A large chunk of metal (some sort of rod - integral to making the engine work!) snapped off. I found this under my car lying in the £20 worth of petrol I'd just put in my car. Before anyone asks was there oil in the car - there was. To date no one can tell me why this has happened, besides the obvious I need a… Read Full Review
