I have an automatic 2014 Fiesta S. There is an issue with the lock/unlock button being in the center of the console. I don't have an automatic lock and unlock key so this can be very hard to unlock the car, then get in and push the button in the center of the console to unlock the rest of the doors. I also don't have cruise control. This should be an option that is automatic to the new cars. Other than that I love the car.
The car is brand new.
I want cruise control to be on all new cars. I also want power locks to have it on the keys as a must.
I do have the same car (Ford Fiesta 2014 S, hatchback; manual though), and had the same "issue" about the locking system the first day. I found very annoying that I had to "stretch" to the center of the console to hit the lock/unlock button... Until I discover the "two stage unlock": when you insert your key in the driver's door, if you unlock the door "two quick times in a row", it unlocks all 5 doors. Also, as soon as you lock the driver's door, by default, it looks all 5 doors.
Hope it helps. :)
