Performance

Keep the turbo spinning and it goes like a rocket. Shows chavs a thing or two. Does a ton easily with plenty more to come.

Reliability

Very good. Never broken down, doesn't like cold starts. Fine once started though.

Typical ford. Managed to unlock the door with a coat hanger when I locked my keys in and the diesel engine gives added theft assurance.
