2011 Ford Fiesta SE 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I love the little car! It's a blast to drive, it parks like a mini, handles like a go-kart and (as my wife says) it looks cute. So here is my breakdown: Pro's: Performance (Ford nailed it with the DCT transmission. The dual clutch really wakes up the little powerplant and makes you feel like you have some real horses under the hood, plus you don't have the "shift lag" of a normal automatic - I was leaning toward the manual, until I drove the automatic - get the latter) Fuel Economy (I've gotten 34 combined hwy and city, and I tend to drive fast - ok, too fast) Price (it's a great car at an affordable price. That said, it is really an entry-level car, don't expect Mercedes-level features)

Favorite Features

Performance Fuel Efficiency Affordability

Suggested Improvements

Con's: "Cheapness" - Ford (as well as GM and Chrysler) cannot seem to make a car without the cheap knobs and handles. Come on, a Yugo had better parts quality) Console (they've crammed "everything" onto the center console (i.e. door locks) - hey, why didn't they put an eject button there too)
