this should give you the definitive answer, unless of course the car was incorrectly registered from the beginning, or its a ringer.
2nd Ka.. bought new from same ford dealer.
Afaik..

EDIT :
Ok.. rear badge says Fiesta..

Whole point of us taking it on was to replace our 14 year old panda.
With a similar modern vehicle.

Not really worth the bother as its 'AllFord'

As I said in initial post..
I was about to get an engine (FIRE) delvered.. but couldnt make sense of the engine numbers:codes.

Fairly obvious now...
As I've looked at the pics she sent me..

Ahh well

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

If you want to replace the Panda, then how about... a Panda, lol?

I used to own a Fiat... It was a right piece of junk as was the panda my mum owned which took me years to talk her to get rid of.

I was alerted to this thread and I knew without a doubt a Ka was never fitted with an ecoboost engine.

Your user name is awful btw,a fan of what is the worst car on the road. Enjoy your scrap.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

You used to own a Fiat, but you don't now, so you're basically just a keyboard warrior, as you keep your account on here just to hurl insults at people who do like Fiats. Real clever. And don't worry, I'll continue to enjoy and cherish my current Fiat, as I have done for the last 4 years.

Tbh, I was trying to sell my mums panda which was why I was trying to save up.

Nobody in the world likes pandas, they're a joke! And I'm sure fiat know they're a joke.

As you'll see my posts are minimal here too.

I'm not a keyboard warrior no, I'd gladly come and tell you you're car is **** to your face...

Punto I owned in 2.5 Years
2 X head gasket
2 X gearbox
3 X clutch
2 X wiper linkage
2 X wiper motor
4 X airbag squib
Let's not forget the time the timing **** itself and the engine needed to be refined and a new cat
Then the central locking stopped working and the passanger door fell off...

SCRAPPED

Awesome car.

That's a really intelligent manner of speech you have there. Many Panda owners have a similar view of your present choice. With regards to your Punto experience, all I can say is what on earth did you do that poor car to make it break so much?!?!?!

You don't know what my current car is. So to say that is ridiculous...

I drove it, hard! after the first time it messed up.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

You've got a 2010 fiesta.

And I can tell you completely and utterly thrashed the poor thing!!!! Does it not occur to you that that may have been a major contributing factor in its demise? I pity your fiesta!

My fiesta is a mint example... it's cared for in every way and visits a main dealer every year for a sservice and is cleaned weekly with Autofinese products, I can categorically tell you that you won't find a more loved example than mine.

Both of my fiestas have been great.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Do you drive those with as little mechanical sympathy as you did the Punto?

Of course. I was 18/19 when I owned the Punto... I'm nearly 30 now.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Then I'm gobsmacked you haven't managed to kill those too. Unlike yourself, I drive with a degree of mechanical sympathy, and that driving style rewards me with a reliable car.

Ok then, does it occur to you that if you treated your fiesta the same as you treated your Punto that that might also die on you???
