'13 Fiesta S model a great value

ReviewThe base model makes a great commuter or single person/small family. With the 5 speed manual, it has oodles of power and handling is precise. Seats are very comfortable in front, cloth is high quality, and trans shifts very smoothly. Seat height is easy to adjust, the telescoping wheel helps driving position. What's lacking in the base model is power windows, CD (why?-never use)/sync, cruise. Fortunately Ford included an aux jack for phone or ipod. With the high cost of used cars these days, a new '13 was only about $2K more than similarly equipped 11's. A no brainer!
Best FeaturesGreat Handling Decent power Comfortable Seats Styling is not boring
Worst FeaturesTaller 5th gear, or 6th gear on manual for better fuel economy. 3000RPM @70MPH is too high for optimal FE. A little more rear legroom - really tight Cruise control on base model
