I drove Ford before the Clio, and if I was to go back it would be to a late-plate recent model that probably wouldn't go wrong - ford dealers are shocking. But having grown up with parents driving "jap-crap" that never went wrong (Proton, Kia, yes how sad) my Clio has dissapointed. I love the styling and the kit levels (thats why I bought it) and if it behaved it would be mine for at least 2 more years, having had it 2 years already. But no matter what we do to it, it starts misfiring and hesitating. For the price you pay, and how young it is, this car should not be going wrong like this. I am willing to compromise a little style for reliability and build quality - the window trim rattles, as does the sunroof - badly. Trouble is, based on my budget, my car of fancy at the moment is....a Ford Focus!!
