    Im on my 4th Ford Fiesta in 25 years - and this one will be the last one as Im not impressed with the build quality of this one.

    And its one of those cars thats fated to get bumped & scraped.

    The first 3 Fiesta had barely a scratch on them - some rust but few dings in the bodywork.

    This pos - only had it 2 days and a plastic barrel blew down the road in a storm and smacked into the back of it just below the window. 2 inches higher and I would have been looking at a new window rather than a big ding in the metalwork.

    Since then its been bumped in the Tesco car park at least twice.

    When I can decide what I want next its going because I loathe this one!

    My H reg Fiesta 1.4 was awesome. I agree they are going down hill, my friends mum has a newish (12 plate) one and it's just not that nice. for a small car it's pretty big, and despite an excellent NCAP rating it appears to be externally made of tinfoil. It's also been plagued with small annoyances that have seen it back to Ford on dozens of occasions. For the first few months she had the dealers courtesy KA more than she had her own car! I drove it the other day and i'm sure the gearbox is going. It's done 40,000 miles!

    She's looking to get a brand new Kia Ceed the second the warranty expires.

    I have an old 2002 Lexus RX300. Horribly reliable, but a bit (read a lot) of a gas guzzler.
    Looking to upgrade in the summer and currently considering either a Land Rover Discovery or Volvo XC90 - we do lots of camping and festivals etc. and need the luggage space!

    05 Plate 1.8l Vauxhall Vectra Hatchback - Plenty big enough, bit fuel hungry but its not the worst car I've had in that respect.

    I have a Spartan 2.8v6 kit car for summer, and a Volvo C70 2.4 for everyday, and when the sun shines (that rare day), a Yamaha R6 Bike. I'm a bit of a petrol head! Although, I had an RX8, best and worse car ever.

    I've currently got a 61plate A6 S line 2.0tdi multitronic. It's doing the job nicely. Previously, Insignia VXR - 1800 for front disc brakes and 21mpg average was killing me. Alfa Giulietta Cloverleaf - fantastic and fun car, especially with a Ragazzon exhaust but had too many warranty faults so when i changed job i changed car. Prior to that, a 58 plate Mondeo Titanium - 99.5k miles in 3 years and one dashboard rattle fixed under warranty. Otherwise, no issues. Ossum car. I'd miss my luxuries now if i went back to it, but it really did do the job fantastically. While I had the mondeo, and the focus before I've had classic mini's which i'd mainly built myself. I've got a bit of an urge to get another now i've gone back to dirty derv as a weekend car but not sure I can justify the cost!
