Re: Early Ford KA
Early ones rust , badly. Check around the fuel filler cap and around the sills. The 1.3 engine is very "tappety" and sounds harsh when reved, the Zetec engine in the later ones is far more refined .Base models are very very basic so try and and get a higher spec model unless she likes winding up windows , unlocking the car with the key and leaning over to unlock the passenger door.
I looked at a few of them for my daughter when she passed her test but due to the reasons above we settled on a Clio which was newer ,far better equiped , more refined and the spares were dirt cheap from ECP.
