09-reg Diesel, Owner for Less than a year

The Fiesta is a fantastic car to look at and to drive and feels like a go kart. However, the build quality is atrocious, considering that it was built in Germany. On delivery, two speakers were not working and the car has been back to the dealer three times to attempt to cure a vibrating nearside front door and speaker panel, which buzz constantly when I am driving. A new door panel has been belatedly ordered by the dealer, who has admitted that rattling door panels are a known fault with this model. It has completely spoiled what has all the makings of a great car.

I am home mechanic and have repaired my own cars for over 30yrs.

This is the worst car I have ever owned!
I purchased dealer parts to replace the leak off pipes (fuel return pipes) the quality of the retaining spring (pipe to injector) is awful!

They cost £2.67 ea + vat and are made of inferior quality metal, you have to press them down to fit them, and so doing renders them useless! they are spring clips with no spring in them!

I love it. It was 3 months old when I bought it in 2001 - the nearest thing to a new car I'll ever get! It spruces up well but I use it to cart garden rubbish to the tip, grand children on days out, shopping, recycling. Only 3 faults - rear window seal can be iffy, wing mirrors don't give springily and there are tiny bits of rust appearing along the edge of the door but not bad for an 8 year old car.

Great car, few issues-boot release doesn't work, and window regulator replaced, not too good for a 4 year old car but its a great car so I can live with these niggles! I use it for motorway drives from plymouth to cardiff, not great on fuel. using round town its ok, but when I take it on a back road to have fun it dips but I enjoy. wear and tear isn't too bad, great car.

Auto express will shortly be running a story about the wheels on my fiesta, the door seals have fallen off twice and the car rattles like a box of matches.mechanically so far all is ok. Relatively good servicing costs although you have to shop around the different dealerships as the price differences are massive. For a 1.6 tdci it combines speed and efficency very well.

2005-reg Petrol, Owner for more than 5 years

Very easy to maintain and cheap.the water pump packed in 3 days before the warranty ran out so that was good.had a front spring snap but probably due to speed humps but private garage did it for 50% less than rapid fit. As its a 1.4 petrol it uses quite a bit more fuel than my old model fiesta 1.25 but is more reliable.

08-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

It has been a really great car so far.
The price was very reasonable and has been totally reliable so far.
It is used as a Driving School car so the mileage has been building up fast.
As it is the previous model I am quite dissapointed the new Fiesta is so expensive now. Will have to consider nearly new next year.

This Fiesta replaced my 2006 Fiesta, & they both have the same diesel engine. The new one is prettier, and the interior is much improved. However, it doesn't drive as well as the old one (not as responsive), and its significantly less fuel efficient (which is probably down to the lousy Hankook tyres fitted)
