But it's a Ford and will need parts all the time, then the same parts again a few weeks later.
My brother had a 3 year old one that was an ex disability car and on the face of it was mint.
It had 20 years worth of rust underneath and everything plastic snapped if you looked at it, especially the lock barrels.
I hated the damn thing and I hated fixing it even more.
It was the second and last Ford in my care.
I get harassed to fix my labourers new Puma, I just smile and give him the auto trader website on my phone.
I sincerely hope it's an in-between car for your nephews sake.
My youngest has a '52 Fiesta and hates it (but less than she hated the Clio and 104).
Very rarely a problem with it and she clocks up a lot of miles.
Last thing was a wheel bearing that could have killed her on a trip to Manchester - a week after MOT man said it was fine
She likes bigger cars - had two SAABs and a Rover 75 that she loved and will be getting something similar when finances allow.
May be a while as she bought a house last week.
