After 10 years and 88,000 kms the 2005 Ford Fiesta, (a.k.a. “The Shopping Trolley”) has gone.
This was a great little car which served us very well and which was economical and reliable.
However I felt that it was time to upgrade and the xyl agreed. (?)
After a bit of research and some looking around we found an ex demo 2014 Kia Rio SLI with 140 km. on the clock and we traded the Fiesta on it.
After 4 days of ownership we are very happy with our choice.
The real test however will be when it ventures out to a park.
I am confident that it will perform well but we will have to wait and see.
Watch this space for warts and all comments.
