79 Fiesta Great Little Car — A Yellow 79 was my first car bought for $900 w/ 88 thousand on the clock in 1985. I was 16 and hard on it. the only time it failed me was my fault for running out of gas. In stop light races I never lost to a Rabbit (the HOT car to have @ my HS). I added a sunroof myself, learned how to replace brakes,put ghia interior in, and drove it for 3 years. My dad took it over when I replaced it and he drove it as a second car untill it finally died w/nearly 180 thousand miles on it by then in 1991/2. He sold it for parts for $350. I miss it to this day. Cheap, fun, quick, reliable, great MPG.

Pros: MPG, cheap, reliable, fun

Cons: none

My Second Car — It was a cute car and two of my brothers had one with great success, however the one I purchased was yellow for a reason. It was fun to drive but I went through two engines. Then one day I crashed it and can still hear the ringing from the tin it was made from.

Pros: I learned a great deal of how to fix engines and brakes and transmissions and CV Joints and...

Cons: Two engines burned out the third piston oh and everything else broke too

Cheap, Reliable, Great Little Car — This car was given to me for free by a friend and other than bein brown was a brilliant car. It took me and seven other people in it once with the only problem being the exhaust scraped on the road slightly! If I hadn't of messed up replacing the points I would've kept it for a lot longer

Pros: Cheap to run and maintain

Cons: It was brown!

2019 Ford Fiesta Reviews

Review By MyChiliPepper

Yes, the Fiesta ST-Line is a good value. 2019 is the last model year, so we wonder about parts availability down the road. But its very economical to drive, getting almost 42 miles to the gallon (even... Read More

Review By Renee

I like the fiesta, I had one in the past it is a reliable car. It looks good, it gets great gas mileage, and it is a FORD! I would compare this car to the Chevy Cruze, or the Honda civic. Read More

The car is fun to drive. It definitely has that going for it. However it is a cheaply made car. Im concerned about future reliability. Also, of you drive it hard, and stay in the turbo, your fuel ... Read More

I think it would be a great car. It’s just the wrong color, for me. I had a 2014 green Ford Fiesta. Wish I hadn’t got rid of it. Read More
