It was not the case with the weaker version of the bike and nobody bought it. More often sold 1.3 liter engine with 60 hp, which is actually ancient iron and spend hard. The engines offered since 2002, more economical and rotate slightly more, but the second hand market is not yet play a role. Ka move primarily in the city. Wear is great even at low mileage. It may be that the car of the province with more miles on the dashboard is the better buy.

Pros: Excellent drive, strong brakes, accurate gear changes, good position seat

Cons: – relative build quality, very narrow space behind a small trunk, high cost

The most common damage in Ford Ka:

Motor: Shumen, due to wear of the shock wave (96/97), boil the head gasket (until 2002), defective water pump leaking hoses

Faulty connectors to 2001

Interlock parking brake (97/98)

Defective drum brakes to ’98

Comments from owners of the Ford Ka

KA-it is a nice little car for the city … If you want KA, buy and your ride. Do urgent repairs (if needed any) and enjoy car. I do not think there are so many flaws, take a test drive before you buy and you decide whether you like it or not …

To complement the motor 1.3. I drove a Ford Fiesta official in ’99 with the same engine. My impressions are good, although not the most modern engines, even I do, but not bad, in contrast, requires no maintenance, has good performance and if you drive about 100 kilometers outside the city has good fuel economy!

I’m two months with this and I am very pleased …. 1997’s, 1.3i … very low …. around 5-6/100, Sunday will change the front brake pads and today I ordered them for 20 eur, anyway since I took it I did not give it a 1 eur except the rear hub bearings and current supplies, oil and filters that you know are still being bought …. make sure you have power steering …. that to me is a bit difficult especially now with parking …

The car is comfortable for city driving, but not for a long time. The front two seats relatively comfortable for people with normal size but the rear are just for kids. Behavior on the road is decent. The car accelerates quickly and handles the bends. Although surprising for such a small car maneuverability can be a problem. There is only one standard airbags (front driver) and crash rating is only three stars. The car is economical and maintenance is relatively inexpensive. Does

not depreciate too quickly. Reliability is good, most failures are trifles.

I did a Ford Ka I love. Really is a bit weird but tity his charm. Plus low center of gravity, in – car is stable because of the broad base to another technically not see differences with other models from this class everything is specific to the car if everything is fine. For less can otbeletsi appearance because not all approve it, but it’s a different vehicle makes an impression. And as far as I know Wayne Rooney has bought a car with my first paycheck, but Chelsea seemed not remember where.

I drive a Ford Ka 1.3 in 1997 – and I can say about this stroller that is just wonderful.

– Extremely strong,
– Normal prices for spare parts / as long as you do not go to Ford /
– Low cost
– Very comfortable seats

The car is worth every penny given to it, but they are not much given the low prices they sell for a lot of our preserved specimens auto market. This is a great investment.

My opinion is biased and totally objective because besides ford ka drive a new Renault Clio 3 / and I went there during the Honda City, Kadett, Corsa, Polo, Ibiza, Yaris, Symbol /. To tell a Clio got 80,000 km for three years and the state where the gym is currently very poor – peeled and removed wheel, ripped leather ball speed / and I keep a lot of their cars / torn upholstery seat Driver and KA is 93,000 km and is like new, that do not believe what is written auto reviews – Ford Ka minicar is one prekrasen urban use, which is not able to rest its German competitors in this class of Opel Corsa Pies Eco Track your bike or that rusty VW Polo. Very underrated and unfairly Spitting car is this little fellow and Cologne from people where they do not understand because of the car away from your nose and do not see any basis for comparison cause other than golf is not driven.

Impressions of the interior of FORD KA:

Ford Ka 1.8 Cabriolet

Salon Ka pole cause emotions and evaluations in the debut of the Mini in 1996 should be recognized that a more avant-garde interiors boast very few cars and coma none of this class. The design of the cockpit, whether enthusiastic or cause annoyance, imposes some restrictions ergonomic and quality of workmanship has a lot to be desired. The plastic on the dashboard is easily scratched, as well as the door sills. The seats are narrow and uncomfortable, and the comparison between the glove compartment and trunk can easily confusion what exactly what it Dizaynat Ka: loved or hated, but never indifferent in a volume of 186 liters, it hardly even bear shopping bag. In the name of the design are sacrificing functionality, mesh ventilation and general comfort level, but that’s not all. Sooner or later the dashboard began to creak and clatter, decorative trim and door knocking for poor build quality. Unpleasant ignition key feature of its form, which is undoubtedly dictated by aesthetic concepts, but did not allow many combinations. So do not be surprise that quite fits great on other cars of the same model. Ford engineers have decided to deliver customer (k) s from fluctuations in the choice of motoring for your pet. 1300-cc engine taken from the Escort and tucked under the hood after a slight performance optimization. Constructive criticisms on the age of the unit of Cologne appropriate counters with its proven ruggedness and reliability. Depending on the model its power can be 50 or 60 hp, which is enough for heavy kupentse under tons of Ka. Distribution mechanism is driven by a motor circuit which saves the worry of breaking a timing belt and told him of the change. However, other old construction requires care. Usually after a run of about 15,000 kilometers have control of the valves start to chatter so that you can hear in the two blocks. In view of the used Ford Ka is better to check for signs of change of the cooling system hoses. The longest of them – almost meters – is easy care and no immediate reaction from the driver easily leads to burnt head gasket. Is also sensitive belt that drives the water pump. In breaking it ceases to rotate and engine overheat in no time. Rather have cosmetic oil leaks from the various gaskets and seals the motor.

The same goes for “wept” transmission which otherwise creates care in extremely rare cases. Designers create the Ford Ka in just two years with the help of latest technologies and methods. German egg concept, however, is quite simple – mini car mini price. This requires a number of economies that are felt even ride model. Besides that it provides a comfortable, chassis and surprised many defects. Most of them are nasty rust nodes on the front axle and bearings wear and tear on the steering wheels. Otherwise taut suspension provides decent stability and manervenost.

Main disadvantages of FORD KA:

braking system is of limited effectiveness and depreciated much faster than normal. Besides wear unusually intense for such a small car, the front discs and apparatus rust control. In 1998, Ford did back in their garages 3500 car of the same model equipped with anti-lock system, for fear of possible defects in the master cylinder. Most of defective wiring due to unfortunate design decisions. Protecting the contacts and terminals from moisture in the system is bad and the generator is mounted so that it takes maximum water and dirt from the road. This naturally shortens life easier and frees up space in the portfolio (see Prices of spare parts). However, if you miss occasional problems caused by wayward central locking installation often causes trouble. Decora
