How did he buy a 2012 Fiesta in April? I'm writing this comment in the third week of July and the 2012 model still hasn't shipped?Report it
I'm sure it's just an error. Also, I find the mpg counter in my 2011 Fiesta a little bit optimistic, by approximately 2-3mpg. I love my Fiesta!Report it
@dcomeau42 - there is a little slot just in front of the gearshift that holds my iPhone (or an iPod) perfectly. As for driving long distances, I am 6'-2" and I find the seats extremely comfortable (though there is not much room for anyone behind me). I agree with adaema05: the computer's average MPG is a tad optimistic. I too, love my Fiesta!Report it
I purchased a '12 Fiesta SES Hatchback at the beginning of Jan '14. It's Race Red and looks beautiful. Unfortunately, it was a rental from the dealer and has 41000 plus miles on it, but it looks brand new. The problem? The automatic 6 speed transmission, when starting off from a stop, and easing on the gas, begins to shake, and clatter like a bad clutch in a manual trans. The dealer says that's normal due to the transmision being a dual clutch and will shake and clatter, but not to worry about it. What? Are they nuts? I'm taking the car back to Kearny Pearson Ford, San Diego, and if it isn't repaired to my satisfaction, then I will seek a Lemon Law Attorney and sue them for my down payment back and leave the car back with the dealer. Are they kidding? How would I ever be able to sell the car with an automatic clutch chatter and shake? I shouldn't have ever bought this car, but it looked brand new, I fell in love with it right away. My mistake!! Their mistake for selling it to me without mentioning the transmission shake!!Report it
