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.
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.
I have a 2011 Fiesta hatchback SE, and it's a fantastic car. I commute about 2 hours a day, and I get an average 34.8 mpg with about half city half highway driving. It's comfortable, the sound system and AC are great, and visibility is really good. It has a giant windshield, great mirrors, and big windows, so you can look out in all directions. There are only two things I'd say I find troublesome about my Fiesta. The first is that sometimes the Sync gets snarled up in its brain and I have to mess with the bluetooth on my phone to get music playing when I first start my car. The second is that part of the key to its fuel economy is that it is an extremely light car, so I have to be careful to observe the yellow sign advisable speed or less on winding country roads, or the car feels like it's going to slide or tip off the road. So if you're looking for a car to tear around the countryside in, I wouldn't go for this one. You also need to go easy on the brakes, because again, the car doesn't have a lot of weight on it so if you stomp the brakes the car tries to slide instead of stop. But if you use the brakes like a sane person who is paying attention to when it is time to stop, with gradual pressure, it stops very quickly with no trouble. Drive conservatively and you won't notice either of these problems. I've had this car for two months now, and it is everything I'd hoped it would be.
