Love my KA
Member Name: kerrilou548
Advantages: Interior, Cheap insurance, Heated rear window, Stylish.
Disadvantages: Tiny boot, bonnet release in awkward position, Glove box lid.
I originally owned a 98 plated KA for my very first car. As soon as I saw the new shaped KA i had to have one, which is why I purchased a brand new black KA in March last year. Just sitting inside it the new shaped KA feels a lot bigger and it is evident that you are sitting higher up then previously. The gear stick is in a really good place as it sits higher into the dashboard making it easier to find when looking straight ahead at the traffic.
The boot is tiny so would not be suitable for a family but is fine for the individual. All my friends love my car and jump at the chance of a lift as it looks just as stylish on the inside as it does on the outside. The only problem is that the glove box lid falls off with the slightest touch. This seems to be a common problem.
Eventhough the black looks really smart and suits the car really well it is constantly dirty. Even straight after I have washed it the dust/dirt shows up. I do not recommend a black car and will remember this when purchasing a car in the future.
I purchased the style model which includes air con and a heated rear window. The heated window is great for the ice which is why I wish I had've gone for the style+ which also has the heated windscreen. I would definitely recommend that this is thought about before anybody purchases this model as it is a great advantage.
A rather odd feature to the KA is that the release for the bonnet is placed in an awkward position by the passenger door. It is quite tough to pull.
I definitely recommend the Ford KA as it is a good relaible run around, looks smart and is cheap.
Summary: Would definitely recommend one!!!!!
