Used 2012 Ford Fiesta S in Dulles, VA for Sale
Reviews for 2012 Ford Fiesta
Terrible investment, terrible car
I wish i could give this car negative stars. This has been the worst car experience of my life. All the reviews i read and all the research i did on this car fell through almost immediately. I wanted to get a vehicle with great gas mileage, a decent amount of cargo space, and inexpensive without being cheap. All the reviews pointed to this car. I bought this car in June 2014. Since then, I have replaced the CLUTCH of an automatic car 4 TIMES through the recall program. The car has a manual transmission controlled by a computer that is supposed to shift itself to save on fuel. I get a recall notice about every 6 monthS: clutch, latches, transmission, computer, etc. It feels unsafe to drive this car. It makes me worried!
I wouldn't recommend this car to a friend because it has had some issues since I have owned it. I am aware that it is a used car but it doesn't drive smooth, it's very jumpy when I accelerate and it also stalls sometimes. There is a grinding noise that I can feel in the gas pedal when I accelerate as well. I have to take it to a mechanic after owning it for 5 months because the engine light came on. There is limited space inside. There is also a door latch recall that Ford has yet to fix. My door wouldn't latch one day so I had to get a bungee cord and attach it to my passenger seat.
Sweet little hatchback
Great on gas. More room than you think. Very reliable.
