Does Everything Well — Gas mileage and pick up is excellent, corners like a mini cooper at half the price. Friends are amazed at the amount of room inside considering the exterior size. The sunroof is a nice feature to have on an economy car, it is not even offered on some competitors.

At Ford Quality Is Really Job One!! The Fiesta Is Just That! — Great on gas and easy to park. At Ford quality is really job one!! They have done a great job on putting this car together and is awesome and super comfortable to drive. Have you driven a FORD lately, if not you should.

Looks good,  handles great nice firm suspension when it needs to be and soft enough so I don't need to slow to much for speed bumps

Cons

Top End is lacking. But not really a complaint as is small engined car

My Fiesta Rocks! — Pretty nippy for a 1.4 diesel. Nice lil boost from the turbo, so ideal for around town & commuting to and from work. Good in tight twisty roads but not so good on motorways...after around 80mph the power seems to drop. Cant really complain as its not built for top end speed. The interior is quite good as you would expect for a lil ford, but I did get a pair of seat covers to protect the seats from getting dirty or damaged. Space wise its pretty good as I did manage to get myself & 3 adults including luggage to the airport to go holiday, (ok it was a bit of a squeeze but we got there). I love the exterior styling, very sleek and smart in the metallic black, just got to get some rims for it. The running costs are great, easily get 54mpg. Maintenece is covered so not an issue. Around good lil car thats fun to drive, nippy around town and really easy to park due to flat rear screen. Must admit I do love this car as I feel completely comfortable driving this car & confident that it will do most of the things I ask it to. Will be getting alloys and a performance superchip for it to give it a bit more style and a bigger punch.

Fun — This car has some cool features for an economy car like heated seats, ability to change ambient lighting colors, SiriusXM and Blue Tooth. I also like that it is easy to park, I can always find a good spot that this car fits into. It is also reliable. It can sit at the airport for a couple weeks & start right up.

Fair. Decent. — The Ford Fiesta is a decent enough car, but lacking what I used to know as Ford quality. Interior parts break, glovebox won't latch, sun visor broke off , mirror fell off. Very aggravating. The 1.6 is a dog on freeway ramps and passing. I work in Los Angeles and commute from the desert over the hill, and without traffic a 45 minute drive but of course reality is a 1.5 hour commute, meaning 3 hours a day in car. Gets good gas mileage, drivers seat comfortable but sometimes I just can't tolerate a drive home so I stay in LA for the night 1-2X week. And only work 4 days a week so not all that bad of a commute. It was a service dep't loaner at Dealer, had only 8,200 miles when I bought it in 2013 and I got a GREAT price, free oil changes for life, extended bumper-to-bumper warranty. i dunno, maybe all those little things breaking were from abuse..people driving it that simply didn't care, or ticked off at dealer for keeping their car for days. Fact is I regret buying this car, the deal just seemed too good to pass on at the time. Need more get-up-and -go.

Great Car For A First Car — I really enjoyed this car. It was great on gas and was very fun to drive. Has a lot to offer for a basic car that you can get for under $20K. It has some cheap interior though, but I guess that is what you get for a cheap car. It handles great, but it has some weird shifting in a parking lot or neighborhood.

Ford Fiesta Sport 1.6 — This is a great car... It is fun to drive, has enough power to get you going! But is also a good car for long distance driving, very easy and comfortable to handle. The front seats a exceptionally comfortable, and it feels like a big car, with all the benefits of a small one.

This Is A Great Car! I Think Ford Hit A Real Homerun With The Fiesta! — I absolutely love my 2011 Ford Fiesta SEL. It looks great, even as a sedan the styling is rakish and forward (IMO). I have a 5 speed manual instead of the 6 speed "auto" but I still get great gas mileage (around 35 combined)! The handling is excellent and it holds the road very well, the ride is not as cushy as some other small cars but it is a very responsive car. The electronic power steering can be described as "nimble". The interior is suprisingly roomy for a small car, at least in the front - I haven't tried the rear seats yet. I have the IA key version, and its nice to be able to leave the key in my pocket and use the button to start the car. The door locks are nice too, just hold your thumb on the square and the door unlocks (as long as the key is on your person). One thing I would have liked is a center arm rest, but this is supposed to be a small car and there isn't much room between the seats for an armrest. The engine is peppy, and shifting is crisp. This car is a blast to drive! It's a load of fun. If your looking for a nice looking small car that's fun to drive and gets excellent gas mileage, look no further! You have found your car.

Fun car, great mpg, head turner

None. Okay, if you've been driving big, it takes some time going smaller.

Drink The Juice And Join Us. Or Don't. So Owners Can Keep This Little Secret To Ourselves. — Going from the Ford Five Hundred to the Fiesta is night and day. Granted, the physical change in interior room was strange at first, but eventually the vehicle started to feel larger than it really was. Drives exceptionally well which adds to the fun factor. Agile and quick for a little vehicle - though the automatic does lag a bit. A manual tranny would have been the great, but the universal answer to that is that the wife wants to be able to drive it. Highly recommended.
