I traded down to save on gas and overall maintenance costs.
So far I am extremely happy with the Fiesta SE automatic.
It handles great and has a little pep to it once it gets going.
The gas mileage is fantastic, I am averaging 32.5 mpg with 100% city driving.
I can't wait to see how it does on the highway in the future.
The SE with alloys and sync make it a great little car.
The front seat is borderline too small but I didn't expect to have extra space either in a compact car.
Ford recommends the first scheduled oil change maintenance at 10,000 miles, that's pretty cool too.
Overall, I highly recommend the Fiesta for it's looks, gas mileage, performance and cost.
Gas mileage, sync, alloys, cost, and of course, gas mileage again.
Slightly larger/wider front driver's seat, that's all I can think of.
