Read Ford KA2 my experience

While my BA is in for some warranty work the dealer gave me a Ford KA2. it was probably as a joke (consdiering they have given me a fairlane and a shiteload of falcons). Anyway an upside was it was a manual. Anyway when I got in it seemed ok, bit weired looking (the shape inside). There is no locking mechanism that i could find for the inside. Something to shock me was no temp guage (or well I couldn't find it). It drove suprisingly well, a lot better than I thought. The car stuck to the road like glue even in the downpour melbourne has had. The interior is well put together, no loose parts or misalignments. There is of course the sound of the road and a few rattles. The glove box (or lack of) was a bit weired it could be flipped around for an enclosed area or a bench. It had a/c, cd player the works. Seems a good little car, except the looks. I also noticed people seemed to cut me off more, basically just ignore me. However I will stick to the BA thanx alot more power. has the looks, the road precense and well I love it a lot more!

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

"Anyway an upside was it was a manual."

KA's don't come in Auto, champ!

And I like them, personally. With abit of foot, you can get some decent acceleration going.

You just need to hit the redline every time for the gear change. :)

Nice little car overall though eh?
