    I bought a late 2006 Zetec, manual 3dr hatch and although it wasn't first off the rank at traffic lights, it's zippy and fun to drive. I had multiple problems with bubbles in the tint and had to get it redone several times - but that's more than likly due to the tint person doing a poor job.

    Great alternative to other small cars.
    Compact, zippy, fuel efficient, lots of room in the back seat, reliable
    Cheap plastic interior, loud cabin noise at high speeds, rear vision not so great

    The Ford Fiesta is a nice car. It is a car that drives well and will take you to you destination safely with its safety features. It is not too small nor too big and it fits for a a person living in or near the city. It can seat 5 people easily and will still leave a room for some luggage at the back. It is reasonably priced for its size without necessarily looking cheap. Driving the Ford Fiesta is easy and comfortable. The controls are without complications. Parking is not a problem because of its maneuverability and relatively small size. It is a good car.
    Simple yet elegant, small yet spacious.
    Slow to accelerate.

    Excellent little car for the money, hard pressed to find anything better in this class, not really a highway car but good as a general runabout round town.

    Quality of the product overall is excellent, not much to complain about with the Fiesta.
    Looks great, good quality, excellent paintwork, good fit and finish, handles well.
    Rather coarse engine, revs too high in 5th gear (needs a 6th cog), seats are not overly comfortable.

    Does it ever completely stop, due to ignition fuse blowing, or just stall?

    2007 LX 5 door hatchback Ford Fiesta.

    In the process of looking at getting a second hand car- different makes.

    How much is it to service a ford fiesta in general?
    The cost to change a timing belt approx?
    And when it comes to mileage - about how much can one car clock, if serviced and well looked after, before the engine dies and/or needs to be replaced. (Unless traded or sold of course).

    Toyota Corollas can go into the 300s for mileage and possibly beyond.

    Found a few more tips on this site http://www.what2drive.com.au/blog/ford-fiesta-2006-08

    1. Make sure to check the radio as it seems to break easily
    2. Check the boot lock and power windows
