Re: Early Ford KA

hi MIL has a 98 (S) plate Ka its the model with factory alloys AC and elec windows etc. FIL bought it new just before he passed away. MIL is now in her mid 90's and takes it to Church and Tesco every Sunday a round trip of nearly 5 miles. Race now on .... will it reach its 20K service before she gets a letter from the Queen ? !. I took it for its MOT in July and the tester said he hadn't seen one with out ANY rust before ! He still sold her two tyres as the rubber had perished and cracked on the side walls.
So it would appear that the KA is a brilliant car as long as you don't use it too much. Al
