    Glad to be back in the CS

    Been on a training course this week and had to do 400 odd miles in a mk6 1.4 tdci fiesta van. Talk about dire, the thing struggles to keep above 75, dropping it into 4th just makes noise with no acceleration. The handling doesnt fill you with confidence either. Had a pretty shit day at work today but when i jumped back in my car after my shift and fired up the 6 to idle it put a smile on my face. After that i just had to take the scenic route home through the lanes . YOu can keep your hatchback ecoboxes thanks .

    I know ford are not a premium brand but my 2000 plate zetec s and my mums 2000 plate focus had much nicer interiors and were not so plasticy, much more comfortable and my mums focus was actually quite pleasant to drive for what it was. A step backwards methinks.

    We had a look at some fiesta vans before we bought the Astra and they were not very impressive.
