Fantastic Little Car — Purchased this car in July of 2012 to replace my Jeep Cherokee. Was purchased for $17,500. Mine is an SE hatchback model with cruise control, Sync, Premium Stereo, LED parking lamps, and 15 inch wheels. This car get's amazing gas mileage, I'm averaging 37mpg with mixed city and highway driving. I can get well over 40 on the highway on longer trips. And even mostly all around city driving will get me about 30. I'm often going close to 2 weeks without filling up these days, the tank is small but that doesn't matter as it lasts 400+ miles! The car handles very nicely, unlike most electric power steering cars this one actually has road feel to it. In addition even though it's a small car it absorbs the bumps on the highway extremely well, and the car is very quiet at highway speeds. The hatchback has great storage, and the stereo system sounds outstanding. It's not the fastest car out there, it's small 1.6 liter engine only produces about 120HP but given that it only has about 2500 pounds to pull it has great pick up. When it comes to braking it stops on a dime. The interior quality is high. The interior has few hard plastics, no shiny plastics, and few panel gaps. I only have a few minor complaints about this car. The front seats don't recline, the back seat is small, and the stereo system takes some time to adjust to the layout is awkward at first. The visibility is good for it's class, far better than the Hyundai Accent/Kia Rio which has horrendous rear visibility.

2012 Ford Fiesta / Good, Dependable, Affordable. — Overall, the car is relitivly fun to drive. it has alot of "comfort technology" such as satilite radio and Ford's SYNC voice recognition system. The Syling is a fairly sporty european look. I'd recommend to a small family ( 3-4 ) in need of a low monthly transportation cost.

Overall A Good Car. — We liked the vehicle as a total package. Lots of nice features, handled well, amazing MPG, very modern and updated style. However, it is a small vehicle, not a lot of room. Also, not the best transmission in the vehicle. But it worked well for us.

Pros

It is hard to find a car with this good of gas mileage. I can typically drive up to two full weeks without filling up, and when i do i spend no more than $35. Very comfortable drive for the driver and front passenger. Very easy to maintain, will last a very long time. Acceleration, breaking, and handling all top of its class.

Cons

Back seat is not ideal for everyday use, unless being used by children. Leg room is rather limited for adults. Lacks in power, however, much more powerful than a hybrid or electric car.

This Car Is Beyond Suitable For Any Driver, Young To Old. — There truly was not much i did not like about this vehicle. Incredibly comfortable drive, extremely cheap to fuel, easy to maintain and take care of. I would recommend this car to any beginner driver learning the ropes, or a life long driver looking to save money at the pump.

Tango! — His performance is excelent!, i'm very happy with this car! Is a small 120hp 1,6L engine but, is very fast!...I've been 2 and a half months with it. This is a fun car to drive, because he had electric steering wheel, which is very soft.
