There are two basic Fox variants. The 1.2 three cylinder and the 1.4 model. The 1.2 is the much more economical car.
i have owned three of the 1.2 model, covering about 80k miles. They have proven to be more or less trouble free. It’s a good, practical workhorse, but built to a budget. There is plenty of front tyre noise in the cabin and performance is adequate. The gearing means that the car will go most places in 4th and 5th gear. Motorways are no problem but petrol consumption dips if you get too enthusiastic.
The only problems I had were as follows:
1. Speedo display packed up, but this was replaced under warranty.
2. Blown fuses from trying to use rear wiper in freezing weather.
3. Front washer hose leak where it meets the bonnet...design issue
4. Electronic boot catch fail
5. Electric window motor fail.
Servicing of the 1.2 is simple and dirt cheap. There is a Base and an Urban model. The latter has a few extras such as split and sliding rear seat, opening rear windows, central locking and electric windows. As a workhorse, I personally think it takes some beating. I taught my son to drive in the Fox too. The clutch is light and the gearbox is smooth. Good basic car, with a high driving position that gives good visibility.
