  • Sport fun, sore right elbow - 2016 Ford Fiesta
    By -

    Love the car in every respect. One change should be made, that is the middle console does not give elbow enough shifting room without hitting.

  • An Amazingly well designed piece of Car. - 2016 Ford Fiesta
    By -

    The Ford Fiesta ST, although carrying that ridiculous name, is by far one of the best designed vehicles for the dollar i have ever driven. The Car's designers wen in on Day 1 and said OK how much do we have? OK! Lets put it all in the Handling, Transmission, and Engine, and whatever's left we will add into the interior. The ST has the shittiest door handles you;ll ever see, and the pedals are missing a dead pedal which is absolutely essential for a manual drive car. The Cup holders are ridiculously close to the Handbrake, and the rear view mirror reminds me of my 87 300Z. Here is where the 5 stars come in. The Controls are all fully purposed and perfectly designed. The nav is amazing! I would even say it is better than Google maps in some respects. The handling is both fully responsive and light, and the car just pulls forever with that clean running turbo. The transmission pulls you towards the next gear but doesn't fight you when you try and force it down one. All this handling, power, and responsiveness, and still has a really good Sony Stereo. The optional recaro seats are a complete must as they hug and comfort you every turn you take. My previous car was a 350Z and this car is much more fun to drive, and feels so much lighter on the turns vs having to wrangle the car into them. I highly recommend the ST to anyone who is looking for a fun commuter, but doesn't want to lost the sports car fun.

  • Ford Fiesta-Great bang for the buck! - 2016 Ford Fiesta
    By -

    Our 2016 Fiesta SE Sedan is our new RV motorhome tow car. The Pro's: Good road handling, good acceleration, sport car feel steering, great visibility, incredible gas mileage (38/39 Hwy), large trunk, well thought out instrument panel. blue tooth and nice radio. Con's: transmission quirky and not as smooth as I'd like, rear leg room limited for full size adults. With a base price of $13,900 it's a great value and over all we're very, very happy with it.

  • first 5000 miles - 2016 Ford Fiesta
    By -

    let's face it everyone one loves a new car so lets keep that in mind. Took my new ford fiesta titanium car on a 4000 mile round trip holiday get away and it was better than great. The only problem was fitting two people ,winter clothes, a dog and Christmas presents all in an economy car. This car has a very large hatch back area an I had hoped to fit it all into the back and not have to pile it into the back seat. Well that dream died quick. So for this trip I should have got the Escape. However as the gas mileage creeped up over 40 mpg (which the sales man swore it would once it hit 2000miles) I became more pleased with my new ford fiesta titanium. The great stuff: 1)the leather heated seats - the best 2) the huge display for the radio and Nav so even I can see it . 3) the sun roof -makes the car seem bigger and lets in the fresh air. 4) this car is layed out so you feel like you have driven it forever. we rent cars and some car brands put things in stupid places 5) a real glove box and console to rest your arm- sounds simple but try to find this in a car under 20 grand and you will see what I mean. 6)dead pedal - a place to rest your left foot on long trips- a back saver. 7)the sync 3 system works great with my iphone The not so great: 1)the nav/gps works good but I have used the garmins for so long that its all I know. So for the first 5000k review this is a great car! we will see at 30k if I cheaped out or got a great fully loaded car that fits in my garage for 18k and change.

  • If the following are true, you probably want one: - 2016 Ford Fiesta

    1) You don't need a ton of space for passengers or cargo. It's perfectly reasonable for everyday use, but 4 adults won't be comfortable for more than an hour, and it doesn't have the kind of cargo space to pack more than for like a couple's long weekend. 2) You can put up with a stiff ride and some wind noise. The suspension is very firm; the ride isn't crashy, but it is firm. If you open the windows above about 60mph, there is buffeting. That's it. This thing is a riot, start to finish: energetic, fun, easy to drive, agile beyond its competition, and surprisingly connected and cohesive. It performs with a lovely balance and sort of cleanliness to its handling. The shifter isn't good, but it works well and a shift kit is easy to install. The steering is actually communicative, and is well-weighted with a nice ratio. The engine is charming: revs hard into the limiter and always wants more, with an adorable medium-pitched bellow under throttle. There's a bit of lag and torque steer, but nothing that detracts from the experience. The handling is as good as the magazines say it is: great turn-in, and puts the power down well coming out of a turn. Brakes are strong and easy to modulate. You'll get mileage in the high 20s even if you drive like a maniac. Base seats, by the way, are fine, or at least not bad. I didn't feel bad about saving the $2k by skipping the Recaros.

  • 1.0 Ecoboost - Fun, cheap, efficient, quick, fun - 2016 Ford Fiesta
    By -

    Fair warning that the Ecoboost version of the Fiesta only comes with a manual transmission. Also consider that the front of the car is very spacious and comfortable, but if you push the front seats all the way back you'll have trouble fitting anything other than a child in the back. You can fit people back there if you need to, but you'll need to schooch forward. I personally don't like to schooch. It's best to think of the Ecoboost Fiesta as a fun and practical driver's car, but certainly not a family vehicle. This car is amazingly fuel efficient while packing way more punch than ANY Prius. When you need to move, you'll move and even be pulled back in your seat just a little bit thanks to that turbo. Unlike a Honda Fit, which is also a fairly zippy car, the engine won't be screaming at you when you're cruising on the highway either. The Fiesta hums at a quiet 2,500 RPM when you're moving at 75 MPH. Now, I said you should look at this as a driver's car because of the manual transmission. A lot of driving enthusiasts are going to mainly have their eyes on a Fiesta ST, but here's the rub. The Ecoboost will get you 45 miles per gallon on the highway, is exceptionally quiet and comfortable and has all the power you could ever need in real world driving. It's a much more practical choice and still quite fun to drive. Here's the big thing, though. The Ecoboost is also much, much cheaper. There's a bit of a trick to this. My Ecoboost had an MSRP of $18,575. It came fully loaded with the moon roof and comfort package (you can't get certain options such as the touch screen system on the Ecoboost.) I got my car brand new for $15,000 with minimal negotiation. The thing is that a Fiesta ST only comes with a manual transmission, but they're in demand. In comparison, dealerships can't even find somebody to test drive the Ecoboost, because anyone who actually knows how to drive a manual only has eyes for the ST. If you find an Ecoboost that's already on the lot, the dealership will be desperate to ensure you walk out the door with it. You name your terms and they'll jump through the hoops. The 3 Cylinder Fiesta Ecoboost is an excellent combination of practicality, fun and price. A rare hidden gem that will be difficult to ever find pre-owned because you'll be hard pressed to find someone interested in selling theirs. Plus, mechanically it's just a neat little car. Lots of clever engineering makes it a unique and interesting choice for car nerds.

    I'm 54 years old, and with the ST I'm a teenager again. I have owned 50+ cars, and this one is by far the best handling car I have ever owned. If you like small cars that have great handling, accelerate quickly, and get decent gas mileage - this is your car. The Nav. and Sync are easy to use. The Recaro seats hold you in place really well.

  • I love my four door "sports" car! - 2016 Ford Fiesta
    By -

    This car has been wonderful to own. The SE options package is worth it. I like the trunk much better then the hatch back. This car can get over 500 miles per tank with four adults and some luggage. The tires could be a little wider but I have no real problems cornering or stopping. Acceleration is great and if you do not like full auto you put it in semi manual mode to punch it up hills or past cars on the freeway. The sync system has been error free and even connects to a tracphone flip phone blue tooth despite saying in the manual it is not compatible. It will not play "unprotected" mp3's via usb thumb drives but has no problem with mp3's on a CD. Have rotated the tires every 5k -10k and they are getting near the wear indication mark on the stock tires at 32000 miles. I do not expect more then 45k miles out of stock tires anyway....I love my 2016 Ford Fiesta!
