    I wouldn't own anything smaller then a 1.6 now. After having 2.0/2.2 etc that the small engines are just not upto the job. My Mrs has a 1.4 207 and it's so slow it's dangerous. I think going from a big car to a fiesta would be a bit of a step down too far. What about a 1.6 engine in them? Zetec s ones look nice and have a bit of poke. Must say it's quite surprising how much space they have for a small car. Had one as a hire car when my st went in. Nice little cars I just think a 1.2 is too underpowered.

    I have just traded in my Focus ST for 1, a 1.6 Titanium and very impressed with it, pick it up on Saturday, i'll pop some pic's up when i get it, alot of very good reviews for them but must agree with mikep, go for either the 1.4 or 1.6, recommend the 1.6 though 118bhp

    I drive a 2009 1.4 tdci fiesta van for work. I do about 50 - 170 miles a day on average making home visits and I like it. Its comfy and pulls well enough to be an easy drive, even with a load of tools up. Does about 400-500 miles on a tank and I don't bother with eco driving, plus a fair bit of urban driving some days.

    Why is it a pain? are you having trouble selling or trading in?

    I managed to get £6500 for my 07 ST2 with 55k on the clock, alot better than £4700 that the 1st garage offered me

    well due to weather conditions down here in the south didnt get round to any garages,but the mrs threw a spanner in the works and said what about a corsa d cdti ?
    well they certainly look ok (sxi) and a 90ps 6speed must go quite well. did have a corsa c cdti many years ago and was fine.
    so now another car to test drive !!
