    After much tooing and froing she decided on a Fiesta 1.0 ecoboost.
    Yes I know they blow up but apparently ford will pay.
    Quite surprised how much go the motor has. Cabin is a comfy quiet place to be so let the miles roll on.
    Cappuccinos on me.

    The PFY has the non-turbo version, the little three pot motor makes quite a nice thrumming noise.

    I've had these as a hire car a couple of times and found them a nice enough car to drive and decently economical, when you want to get a wiggle on you can really thrash the little engine though being in 2nd gear at 50mph does feel a little bit odd at first you soon get used to it

    They're overrated. Very busy, full of potholes and impassible if it snows anywhere within 30 miles.
