2011 Ford Fiesta SE 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Car Drives and handles well, it's very quiet and smooth. The dual clutch automatic helps with mileage buts gets "jerky" sometimes in stop and go traffic. Acceleration is not awful but it sometimes lags, a few more horses would be welcome. Also rpm are way too high on the highway. this car MUST rev a lot to accelerate. it loves 5000 rpm under moderate acceleration.
Sync is awesome (needs some fine tuning on the voice recognition). Also, the steering assist that cancels out wind effects and uneven pavement is great. Great insulation makes for a quiet car.
The headrests in the rear seat of the sedan are huge and you cannot see out of the rear very well. Cruise control should be standard (esp on the SE). Satellite radio should not be such a major option having to get on a higher model with a big option package. more wattage in the stereo please.
