Pros

Fun and fast

Cons

some interior trims are a bit cheap, seat catches break easily

45

The Fiesta St — Lots of fun to drive, quick n nippy around town, nice half leather interior with ST stitched into seats, nice other ST touches inside, not the cheapest to run fuel wise but build quality is excellent. Maybe should have made it a turbo tho for that extra spark!

Pros

Fun to drive on the country roads

Cons

Noisy on the highway

45

Fun Car, As Long As You Don't Do Too Long Trips In It. — Great performance in a great looking car. Fast and nimble on the road. A bit loud on the highway, probably mostly because of hte 17" rims and low profile tyres. Not the greatest build qualty, but good enough for the price.

Good American — This Ford's drive quality is smooth and flawless. No surprises here. The V8 serves up an awe-inspiring gush of power as one antes up on speed, and runs through the seamless shifts effortlessly. Powerful, no-drama-anti-lock brakes work with predictable precision. Acceleration is satisfactory. Ride quality is comfortable. Steering is crisp and efficient. The Fiesta soaks up bumps efficiently and is a breeze to drive, thanks to its especially tuned suspension features. The fascia has a strong substantial look. Hood and fenders flow gently, giving it a refined look, while creating a better sight line of the edge of the car for easier parking.

Pros

the looks, 17'' alloys, performance

Cons

the sound system

Fiesta St — the performance is pretty good with a 0-60 in 7.6 secs and a just does only 129mph. the braking isnt that much cop but it does. there is a couple of squeeks here and there but you forget about them. it is a gorgeous looking car espessially in colorado red, the interior is great with the body hugging seats and the good driving position. i bought the car for just under 8k. which i think was a great deal for the age mileage of the car (35k). the car handles so well in the corners and the throttle response is amazing gear changes are quick and smooth. this car would suit young drivers looking for a quick but safe car. the fiesta st would make agreat track acr and rally car. there are also plenty of options to make the fiesta look like what you want

Great Handling. Great Looks, Fun Drive — great looking hot hatch inside and out, probably the best handling hot hatch fot the price. if any faults, the fiesta ST could do with a little more power. lovely car to drive with quite cheap insurance as it is only group 13.
