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.

Cons

Noisy on the highway

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.

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

quick yet cheap/reliable

Cons

the need to make it quicker.

If Ur 21 And Under This Car I Perfect! — performance: quick out of the box with 150bhp but needs more! brakes and handling are really good. build quality is good and so is the appearance and interior. Cheap on insurance and average of fuel, Fun factor is good as you wont find as quick a car for the same insurance price.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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
