The Ford Ka is a city car first introduced by the Ford Motor Company in 1996.  The first generation of the Ford Ka proved to be a popular small car on the UK market, and has continued to be a desirable small runabout for used car buyers.  The second-generation of the Ford Ka was introduced onto the UK market in 2008.

Used Ford Ka’s, especially newer examples, are available to buy through Ford’s UK main dealer network as an approved used car.  Ford has one of the most extensive networks of main dealers of any brand in the UK. Ford’ approved used car sales operates under the Ford Direct banner.  Buying a used Ford Ka from Ford Direct has a number of benefits over buying from a private seller or independent trader.  All used cars bought from Ford Direct have been inspected by RAC inspectors, prepared using genuine parts by Ford-trained technicians, and include a two-year, unlimited mileage warranty with roadside assistance.  The Ford Direct section of Ford’s UK website has a search facility, allowing users to search for the particular Ford Ka they require, searching for cars currently in stock at its network of main dealers.  Alternatively, you can visit your local Ford dealership for more information on Ford Direct used car sales. You may also want to find information about Atlas caravans.

The internet is also home to a growing number of independent websites where private sellers and motor traders can offer their cars for sale.  These websites also provide the opportunity for buyers to search a wider range of available vehicles using the search function, and can tailor the selection criteria to ensure the website displays vehicles with the specification, price, and location to suit the needs of the individual buyer.
If purchasing a Ford Ka from a private seller or small independent motor trader, try and out as much as you can about the history of the vehicle, and it is possible to carry out your own checks into this.  There are a number of service providers offering checks into whether a vehicle has been stolen, written off, or is subject to outstanding finance.

If not buying through the Ford Direct used car sales network, it is important to find out if the service history of the vehicle has been kept up to date. If the car is still under warranty, and servicing and repairs have not been carried out on time and by Ford-approved technicians, it may have invalidated the.  The way to check for this is to see whether the cars service book has been kept up to date, and has been stamped with the mark of a Ford main dealer or approved repair and service centre.

With the high volume of Ford Ka’s available on the used car market, patience may be a virtue.  If you search long and hard enough, you could grab a bargain and find a Ford Ka which has full service history and/or low mileage.
