Cannot kill this cheapo legend

Bought 2007 model as ex demo. Has no bells and whistles thus my mechanic says it will go forever. So far put 178000kms on it and going strong. Pretty good on fuel.

Purchased in December 2008.

I love my '06 zetec. I have had it for 2 years now and intend to keep it for another 2 years. It's quick, suprisingly fast, very roomy & has a great sound system. All my friends love it and you will not find a better car for the money!
Very zippy, economical with petrol, great stock sound system, value for money.
Not too happy that the back seats go forward but not backwards into the boot (making a big bed!). Also, the passenger side seat is quite hard. Would be MUCH better if the seats were electrial as it's very annoying & tiring to constantly have to turn the handle to move the seats.

Had since new. Fantastic car and will buy another one if they bring out a new XR4 model. Never had a single problem.
XR4 - Everything. Best Car I've had. Drives like it's on tracks. Bang for buck - has everything. Heaps of poke.

It is a good car and I would recommend it as a first car or a car to get around town in.
I love the car goes fast, runs well and is cheap on fuel.
The back seats are a bit small.

The "Ford Fiesta" is a wonderful car. It is one of the bigger small cars in its range. My husband originally wanted to buy a very big 4WD ute because he is a truck driver and he loves big cars, but when he tried this car he completely changed his mind. My neighbour also did the same. he had an old 1980's fuel guzzling giant, and now he absolutely loves his little Ford Fiesta. I would recommend this car to anyone. It is great for longer drives on the weekend and everyday trips to work. You also have a great choice of extra's when you purchase this car.

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.

Sorry cannot be much help. Due to hear box problem sold our Fiesta with about 25k on clock. Servicing was about 250 each year. Apart from gearbox car was good.

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
