Your Quotes

“The bodywork is very easy to dent, and the brakes are bad, too, no matter how many times I change the pads. But I like the ride, and it's quite fast.”

Julia Pearlman - London

“It's a fun car that still makes me smile every time I drive it.”

Mr Stuart McKinley - Middlesex

“A slightly quirky car, with a wheel at each corner and therefore easy to park. Some good, practical features.”

Mrs S Austin - Glos

“Overall the Sport KA SE we own is great, my partner and I love it, it's a little noisy inside but we just turn the music up, would like a little more mpg from a small car, running costs are very low. Just a great little car.”

Mr Kevin Hough - Herts

“Engine fixed on first time, electrics three times to sort and think that the garage disconnected wire to stop problem. Other than that, good little car, considering design approx 10 years old. Six-speed gearbox needed to assist the close ratio on the sport ka, not great for motorway driving. ”

Mr Joshua Tobin - Somerset

“A great car for two people for local driving and occasional long journey.”

Mr Andrew Murdoch - Surrey/span>

Manufacturer Verdict (Position - 20th)

A credible rise of four places has let Ford break into the top 20. Given its position in the sales charts, this is hardly anything to write home about, but at least it is going in the right direction. The firm’'s worst rating comes for the comfort of its cabins. You tell us finding the best driving position is a real pain in the back. But the blue oval has finished a full eight places ahead of arch-rival Vauxhall.
