Good value if well looked after. Dies slowly otherwise!

Fair costs, with exception of the gearbox reoccurances.

Resourceful driving will keep it pleasant.

The 16 valves with regular oil changes keeps it responsive.

Never let me down yet, plus its a Zetec! Starts on the turn of the key.

The RS ready body styling makes it appealing to the hot hatch people.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Basic interior. Bumpy ride at times. Needs less body roll.
