Transmission problems

2013 Ford Fiesta Mike - Ontario, CA 03/12/2015

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 Fiesta BJ Edwards - sacramento, CA 11/11/2015

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.

Terrible investment, terrible car

2012 Ford Fiesta A Cox - Raleigh, NC 12/05/2016

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!
