Uncle Festa

Post  luke_mk1 on Sat Sep 24, 2011 6:40 am

Should be picking it up Saturday/Sunday or Monday!

Its a 2009 58plate moondust silver Fiesta Zetec s TDCI

26,000 - 3 service stamps all done at Ford Rotherham - 12 months MOT and 12 months tax for £30!
Has 4 new tyres.

Slate it if you want, but after driving a Golf GT TDI 2008 plate, Focus TDCI, 9n2 1.9 TDI and a Ibiza, the fiesta feels so much comfier on a long run!
And yet its cheap to insure, cheap to tax, MOT's fine, Service doesn't need doing for 10,000

Will give it a good polish, and "detail" when i get it, ready for winter and let it slave away, might do a few tweeks such as some axle spacers 35mm springs and maybe a map. but time will tell

Nice one luke my mate had one of these said they were great cars he PX his passat like you had alot of trouble with it thought he'd try somerthing different....

he's now PX it and bought a golf mk6.....

but he did always mention a whirring noise in the engine bay and some overheating problems which apparently are common faults and your local ford dealer should be able to fix,

other than that he loved it!! put it on the rolling road and even though they're said to have 90bhp (88bhp) it's actually nearer the 102bhp cheers

cross fingers all goes well

you'll come back to the dub side sometime they all do! Laughing

Aye, this was re-called, for the main issues...

Checked with the history of the car... Squeeky handbrake cable, over heating issue, is down to a pipe know to split, this was down to the design of this....

And aye, ive heard they run more like 102 ish.... time will tell....

But this is going to be a saving opportuninty for a yeram get debt free... then i can look for a second car
