Love this car, but don't buy the diesel. I've had this car since new and so far it has been returned to the garage 5 times (3 times by recovery truck) for loss of power related to the emissions system. It regenerates too often diluting the oil, causing the red warning lights to come on at very short notice. It was subject of a national recall in November and it failed again only two weeks later and is now on its way back to the garage. Really disappointed as this was my first ever brand new car. Ford have done nothing as despite being "fixed" 5 times, and stating that apparently it's not a faulty product.

Very nice car. I have the 1.0-litre Active turbo. It's very nippy for a small engine and has a comfortable ride. No problems with it at all very pleased!
