Ford Fiesta ST (2004–2008)

What's good

GOOD FUN. GOOD VALUE USED.

Club for owners of all Fords, old and new: www.fordownersclub.com

What to watch out for

Can feel a bit too sharp at first, until the driver learns how to exploit it.

Make sure drain holes in front doors are properly stamped out of the pressing and are free flowing.

Pollen filter seals may not be correctly fitted and lead to flooding of passenger footwell.

Since this is a boy racer car, look for boy racer damage: kerbed rims, bent suspension, spiked car converters from revving off the limiter, etc.
