The Ka has proved highly profitable for Ford despite its low selling price, largely due to low development costs.
In 2006, Ford sold 17,000 examples of the Ka model per year in the United Kingdom.
These bumpers contained a stabiliser to prevent UV degradation which made them unsuitable for painting because the paint would not adhere properly.
However, it became clear that many owners wanted body-coloured bumpers, so they were introduced in 1999 using different bumper mouldings (without the stabiliser).
As with other Ford models, insufficient anti-corrosion treatment during manufacture and the use of non-galvanised steel results in premature surface and structural corrosion becoming established on cars used in more northern, damp climates.
In Australia, the Ka was introduced in October 1999 and was on the market there until 2002.
The Ford Ka is a small car manufactured by the American manufacturer, Ford Motor Company from 1996 to 2016, as a city car, and from 2014 onwards as a subcompact car.
It entered its second generation in 2008, being produced by Fiat in Tychy, Poland. The first two generations have a three-door hatchback body style, with the first generation also having a two-door convertible version that was marketed as the Street KA, alongside a sporty hatch version, known as the Sport KA. The third generation is produced as a five-door hatchback and as a four-door sedan.
