2012 Ford FiestaH H - Hoffman Estates, IL06/22/2015
Good car for a good price. Gets about 30-35mpg. Comes with heated seats, which honestly was the selling point for me after finding out it was in good condition. It's a great size. Not too small or big. Easy to park. The hatchback does limit trunk space, but I don't carry a lot, so nbd.
It's had two recalls on it now, one before I bought it (which I was well informed about) for an airbag deployment issue, and one soon after I bought it for a door lock issue.
The headrests on the seats are kind of awkward; they force your head down and have little to no support for your neck, so I had to put a neck pillow in to make it more comfortable. This could just be because I'm fairly tall. The seats might be better suited for a shorter person.
2013 Ford FiestaMike - Ontario, CA03/12/2015
I purchased this exact car (Literally the one in the pics!) and it had transmission problems that we were told is normal. When shifting from 1st to 2nd gear it sometimes felt like we were in a rodeo, as well when coming to a slow stop or accelerating slowing it sounded like someone was kicking an aluminum can. Again we were told this was normal and due to the CVT transmission. I looked into the "problem" and found many others that are having the same issue and that the term "normal" is not correct that it is a known problem with the transmission in the Fiesta, and the Focus. Please research the transmission before purchasing.
good price but not happy with it
2014 Ford FiestaBJ Edwards - sacramento, CA11/11/2015
It shudders horribly. It hesitates when taking off. Simply not a smooth take off. It does ride ok once its past all that. Stop and go makes you crazy with that shuddering. I'm probably going to trade it in very soon even though i already tinted windows.
This car was just rated the worst car on consumer reports. Wish i knew this before.
