I own a 2011 Ford Fiesta SE.
I've had more mechanical problems with it then any other car I've owned.
Bought it new, and has been making a grinding noise since I bought it.
Replaced the clutch and is now in the shop again for the 3rd time, they cannot figure out what the grinding noise is?
I don't understand how Ford can get away with this?
They are not standing by their product.
I've also read, that they were replacing transmissions quietly due to this terrible grinding noise it makes?
Love the way it handles, the good gas mileage it gets, it is comfortable...fiesty little car on the highway...
Improve the grinding noise the engine makes when going from 55MPH to between 30 - 40 MPH...Needs a console, and also a rear window wiper, along with a trunk opener in the dash.
Otherwise, if they corrected the grinding noise it makes, I'd say this car is perfect, but it has got some major mechanical problems that Ford is not standing by.
