This is a wonderful car with great build quality, a great ride and great handling. I've had this car nearly a month now and I must say that I'm very impressed with it overall. Overall, Ford has hit a home run with this car. I was considering a Honda Fit but chose the Fiesta instead. It simply had a superior ride. Having said that though, it was a tough choice given the the versatility of the Fit. If the Fiesta and the Fit had a baby together, it would be a perfect car. On the refresh of the Fiesta, at the very least, Ford should have the rear seats fold flat and ditch the huge rear headrests. In order to fold the seats flat I have to remove mine. The Fit has the superior design here.
Sync system excellent though sometimes quirky. Handling is unparalleled in this class, I think. Very solid feel. Steering pull-drift compensation actually works well. Fit and finish are the best in this class. Very comfortable interior.
Fold flat rear seats with smaller headrests. A center armrest, please. Keyless entry fob needs to be programmable. It is maddening that you cannot open all doors using the keyless entry fob. Sync TDI is nice, but Ford should offer as an option a navi system, similar to the new Edge as an option.
