Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Being the Zetec S it shows I have the car on the inside to be a grown up but on the outside I am still clinging to my sportier, youthful days.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Love the looks, surprised I went for a Ford but they understand when they see it and see the spec level.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would, it is still early days in ownership but i haven't found anything i don't find to be a positive decision thus far.

What are you likely to buy next?
A bit early to say but I would be interested in the ST or maybe a Mustang. So far though I am enjoying being a Ford owner.

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£13,890

When did you buy the car?
March 2015

End of the tax year meant savings in a few areas. Comparing to other list prices around it seems to be a good deal.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I wanted a change from my unreliable BMW.

What was the dealer like?
Really good, genuine and honest. Lacked some car knowledge which wasn't too much of an issue.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Really firm and punchy. I was surprised how much I enjoy driving it as I did have a 3 litre BMW coupe prior to this I really think it is as good to drive around town.

What's it like to park?
Front and rear parking sensors, auto park and great visibility. It is an absolute doddle!

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing yet. Comprehensive warranty and extended warranty means I have piece of mind.

What's most practical about your car?
Space and more than that, usable space.I also think the nav and stereo are very practical to use.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The nav is great and it is really good having DAB. I love the auto park though!
