Previously OwnedHyperen's Ford Puma 1.7 Black Edition (2000)
Last updated: Monday 25th March
Bought for £1,550 in December 2011 at 82,364 miles. Sold for £523 at 95,799 miles.
Really good fun but drained my wallet in repair and maintenance costs!
Sold due to impending clutch failure and unknown coolant leak as well as a few other niggles.
Cracking combination of a fun car to blast about back roads in yet reasonably practical and comfortable daily driver/work hack. Fantastic engine, lovely steering, handling and gearbox. I know it divides opinion but personally I really like the looks. Would love another (hopefully more reliable example...) one day.
