2013 Ford Fiesta SE 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I've owned my Fiesta for 7 months, and have already had the "automatic" transmission repaired after the clutch went out. Unfortunately for me, this went out while I was on vacation and using the cruise control on a wide-open interstate. I had some concerns about the transmission from the moment I got it, since it shifted loudly and had odd hesitations that were very scary (like pulling forward across two lanes while attempting to turn left on a 3-lane road, and suddenly finding a complete loss of power and oncoming traffic). Ford was awesome throughout the repair, however. Crossing my fingers that this is the only repair it will need.

Favorite Features

Sporty, quick to respond to maneuvers, comfortable seat positioning once I figured out how.

Suggested Improvements

They need to take the Powershift transmission back to the drawing board and find a way of making it quieter. I'd also love it if they'd research broken transmissions to figure out why they might die.
