I had to have the transmission replaced within a year of purchase. Evidently, the transmission is a problem with this model. Fortunately, the car was under factory warranty and I've had to have several issues fixed. The transmission was replaced, the passenger door was replaced because it wouldn't close and is due to a recall. Ford currently does not have a replacement for the doors and simply replaces it with another faulty door that may eventually need replacing again. Water leaked through the trunk and filled the spare tire compartment with water. The only two pros about this car is the gas mileage and the fact that it silences any incoming text messages so that you're not distracted.
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.
Best-handling car I've ever driven
2015 Ford FiestaT Shults - Greenville, SC02/19/2016
Over 43 years of buying cars, and this is the best-handling car I've ever driven (including two Mazda Miatas). when your right foot goes to the floor, the road had better be clear because you will be gone! The brakes are right-now direct, and the features are outstanding. Get the Recaro seats on the ST and it's like you're velcro'd into the car (which is really good when cornering hard). The 6-speed manual shifts like a knife through honey. Bottom line, if you like to drive, get a Fiesta ST.
The Ford F-150, the top-searched vehicle on carmax.com in 2017, has a heck-raising version called the SVT Raptor. Love it or not, the Ford Raptor is impossible to ignore. It rules the road (and dirt, mud, sand, etc.)!
