+ Introduction
Ford Fiesta - Introduction

Many of us have grown up with Ford Fiestas. This car is an intrinsic part of modern small car motoring - it's as simple as that. And the model we're looking at here? Well, it's the sixth generation version, which sold between 2002 and 2008. This car, more than any other Fiesta, represented the single biggest advance in the history of this iconic model line, fir the first time offering decent interior space as well as the car's usual class-leading driving characteristics. Here's how to bag a good one.

+ History
Ford Fiesta - History

By 2002, without a major re-design in seven years, the Fiesta was beginning to be overtaken by more modern and more spacious rivals. In response, Ford took a radical approach, designing a car that notched back the sporting focus a little but which offered a good deal more rear seat space and luggage utility.

There was a choice of three or five-door bodystyles, with buyers who wanted even more versatility being offered the option of the slightly larger Fusion model. Entry-level Fiestas had either 1.3 or feistier 1.25-litre petrol engines, both unremarkable, but better powerplants were to follow in 2004. Towards the end of that year, a revvy 150bhp 1.6-litre petrol unit was installed in the new hot hatch ST 3-door model, while an equally good 1.6-litre TDCi diesel represented the range pinnacle for 5-door buyers.

Don't worry if you can't stretch to one of the post-2005 facelifted models. This was a cosmetic nip and tuck, with minor cosmetic changes inside and out. The grille was updated with a diamond mesh design, the headlamps were pointier and the side mouldings became thicker as they progressed rearwards. The rear lights were reshaped were the bumpers and the overall effect is a slight move away from the Fiesta's inherent chunkiness in a sleeker, more dynamic direction. The quality of the interior materials was also boosted.

+ What You Get
Ford Fiesta - What You Get

The design is everything a modern Supermini should be - as you'd expect, given that Ford had plenty of time to examine the competition during this car's lengthy development. The first thing we should talk about is space. Rival offerings with Tardis-like interior dimensions had rendered the MK5 generation Fiesta a touch quaint, and nowhere was this more evident than in rear seat room. Economy class on an Aeroflot internal flight sprung to mind when snugly ensconced in the back of the little Ford. That's no longer the case of course. With the MK6 Fiesta, Ford were consciously out to make it a significantly larger car. In fact it's 87mm longer, 50mm wider and 100mm taller in five-door guise. Even the three-door version makes the old MK5 model seem like one of those tiny citycars.

You might assume all this to mean that this car is not as easy to park or as simple to thread through city streets as its predecessor. You might think that, but you'd be wrong, thanks largely to the glassy bodyshell which does an excellent job in disguising the extra bulk. Whether the current car is better looking than its predecessor is a matter for debate. Whereas the front end cribs its styling cues from the larger Focus Family Hatchback, the rear end divides opinion, looking like a bevelled and chamfered Vauxhall Corsa. It's no great beauty, that's for sure, but it's undeniably effective in achieving that goal of providing superior internal accommodation.

Drop into the driver's seat and you'll be greeted with a dashboard that adopts many of the quality conventions of the MK3 (2000-2007) Mondeo range, and that's good news. For those who enjoy tracing the lineage design, that Mondeo's interior designer was poached from Volkswagen - and it shows. Mind you, it's easy to see where cost has been excised from the Fiesta, competing as it does in a class where margins are utterly cut throat. Some of the fascia plastics feel somewhat hard and nasty and anti lock brakes are an extra cost option across most of the range.

Cleverly however, Ford appreciated that the bits of the cars we physically touch most often lend the strongest impression of quality, and to this end wisely fitted leather-trimmed steering wheels and tactile gear shifters. Another example of intelligent design comes in the shape of rear head restraints that are deliberately uncomfortable when not slid up into their deployed position. This encourages rear seat occupants to utilise them properly but gets around the issue of encumbered rear vision when rear head restraints are traditionally fitted.

Equipment levels are reasonable, spread across Finesse, LX, Zetec and Ghia trim levels, plus the sporty Zetec-S and ST variants. All MK6 Fiestas get intelligent windscreen wipers, a CD stereo, central locking and Ford's 'Intelligent Protection System'. The figures should stack up OK too, with low day-to-day running costs and reasonable projected residual values. A Durashift EST sequential manual transmission was available as an option on the 1.4 16v.

+ What To Look For
Ford Fiesta - What to Look For

All right so let's work through what is a pretty short list. Let's start with the gearbox. If you've opted for the Durashift automatic on a 1.4-litre model, there can be some problems with the clutch unit, so get it checked. On the move in all Fiestas, you want to listen for front suspension creaks over bumps which will indicate that the drop links have worn - a cheap thing to fix.

Inside, check the seat catches in three-door cars, making sure both front seats tilt forward properly when you operate the catch. Look in the front passenger footwell too. If it's damp, that could mean that the seals for the pollen filter aren't properly fitted. Finally, make sure all the dashboard warning lights illuminate on start-up. They should all go out again but glowing ECU lamps with a loss of power are common, and expensive to fix. Check that the amber engine management light comes on with the ignition and goes off shortly after. If the light stays on or the car misfires, the most likely problem is the coil pack. If there is no misfire, the problem is kikely to be a sensor. Should either one of these happen, then negotiate between

£75-£100 reduction from the asking price.

Otherwise, just make sure your prospective purchase has been properly serviced and that the tyres are in decent shape, plus check for the usual kiddie damage and parking scrapes. Engines are, on the whole, reliable, but watch for the usual signs of wear and signs of hard fleet or company use such as worn carpets or beaten up trim.

+ Replacement Parts
Ford Fiesta - Replacement Parts

(approx based on a Fiesta 1.4 Zetec) As you might expect, parts are plentiful and relatively inexpensive. A clutch assembly and an alternator will both be around £75. Front brake pads are around £30 a set and the rears £20, a replacement headlamp is close to £50 and a manual door mirror should be in the region of £50. A full exhaust is about £120 and a catalyst is about £220. A starter motor around is around £110, front wing is around £90, a windscreen about £70.

+ On The Road
Ford Fiesta - On the Road

Five petrol engines were offered at various times, a 67bhp 1.3, a 75bhp 1.25-litre powerplant, a 16-valve 79bhp 1.4 and a range-topping 1.6-litre 16-valve that's good for either 99 or 150bhp. For those looking to squeeze a few more miles from their gallon, there's a leisurely 67bhp 1.4-litre TDCi common-rail diesel that manages over 50mpg in normal use or a much feistier 90bhp 1.6-litre TDCi unit.

On the road, this Fiesta isn't as entertaining a steer as the previous generation model or the larger Focus, thanks to the fact that Ford's bean counters blocked the inclusion of the larger car's independent control blade suspension. Still, Ford's knowhow in this respect is still good enough to lift this car clear of most of its rivals, something you'll really feel at the wheel of the sportier models.

The steering, for example, was obviously engineered by somebody who understands the needs of keen drivers, being nicely weighted and rich in feedback without becoming a wearing distraction. The Fiesta shrugs off mid-corner bumps well and has a genuine big car feel. If there's one complaint however, it's that the Fiesta may almost be too clever for its own good, for it's true that some of the verve and pizzazz of the old car's handling has been smoothed out. In making the car more competent, a little of the fun factor has been excised.
