Michelle Flaherty’s First Car……

Grey Ford Fiesta

Grey Ford Fiesta

What was your first car and why did you buy it? My first car was a grey 2 year old Ford fiesta. I bought it to learn to drive and get to and from work but it ended up being the best form of freedom and adventure.

What did you pay for it? I paid €9000 euro for it.

How did it change your life? It was great not having to rely on others.

What was the longest trip you ever took in the car? My longest trip was Mayo to Dublin.

What was your best memory or most memorable moment in the car? Best memory was passing my test in it first time and meeting my brother to tell him and ringing my insurance company to say I had a full licence and getting money back on my policy.

How long did you keep your first car?  I kept the car two years and decided to buy a new Peugeot 206 which I hated as it was so unreliable so after a year I sold it and bought another new fiesta. They were the most reliable cars I have ever owned and they never ever gave trouble.
