    thinking maybe 1.3 fiesta or 1.2 corsa. what do I need to look out for when buying. Obviously FSH would be nice. Does the Fiesta 1.3 have a chain or a belt? How long does chain last....any help would be appreciated.............

    Your best of taking a mechanic or someone in the know with you. I would never go and buy a car blind. By this i mean, buying a car not knowing what i am looking for.
    Good luck
    Cars are cheap at the min, dont rush into it the car your after will turn up

    ford do 2 1.3 engines,one is actualy 1250 and is a 16v engine made by yamaha,the other one is a pushrod engine,this engineis prone to breaking camshafts,rocker shafts and getting very noisey,the 1250 engine is i believe a belt driven engine,i would go for a early 1.2 corsa if you can get one in your budget as they do tend to hold onto their value
