2014 Ford Fiesta Hatchback Titanium 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We bought ours used at a Mercedes dealer, lol, with 25k on it. Looks and drives brand new. The Titanium model comes with absolutely everything you can imagine including heated seats (LOVE this in PA), and backup camera. The navigation system is spot on and Ford Sync finally got their act together. Recognizes commands like a charm. Opt for the 5 speed manual, and you'll have no worries about Ford's crazy "automatic/manual" shift transmission problems. We get higher than the advertised mileage and love all the little extras, generally reserved for a luxury car. My HUSBAND loves the crazy lime green as much as I do!

2014 Ford Fiesta Hatchback SE 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Moral of the story - It only takes a bit of force in the front end of this car to total it, but it is a fantastic car before that!

Just look at the crash test scores for the 2015 compared to the 2014 (didn't require the more in depth tests) on cars.com: "Front, Restraints and dummy kinematics - Poor," "Front, Structure and safety cage - Marginal," "Front, Overall evaluation - Marginal." If that doesn't scare you, then best of luck to you and may you never get in an accident because once you do your car is as good as totaled! Ford should focus on durability because the rest of what they did with this car was great.

What I loved about my fiesta: Great handling, Smooth acceleration, Little road noise, Fantastic suspension, Nice entertainment system, Good vehicle feedback (tire sensors etc.), Amazing fuel economy (33-37 year round), and I am very sad to see the car go over such a minor incident! If you love yours be super careful with it!

2014 Ford Fiesta Hatchback S 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

new fiesta 12.5 worst car ever owned and every part of ford customer relations ,service,finance,and every department in ford I have had the unpleasant pleasure of dealing with .After purchasing car from new to transport foster children and my own relatives children safely to school and there various activities safely.After 3weeks of owning the car it had a intermediate fault, loss of power stalling at junctions and de acceleration it as been returned nearly every month for 15 months and still not rectified .I have been accused of being a liar because a computer says there is no fault showing and I can not drive after 30 years. Child safety is paramount to me. Trust ford they don't care


Best Features

None apart from my whole experience with ford is a joke sleepless nights,undue stress,lack of concern for child safety and welfare.And TRUST FORD logo.TRUST FORD TO RUIN PEOPLES LIVES


Worst Features

Start careing for cutomers not profit it's customers who made ford not greed.And don't ask a dissatisfied customer for money to return a unsatisfactory car to you or resolve problems by suggesting we buy another car

2014 Ford Fiesta Hatchback Titanium 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The front has a fully independent suspension, but rear has only a cheap beam in the back. And the rear bottoms out on bumps.

Engine has Zero torque from A standstill when flooring the accelerator.

The gas economy is not 29/39. My trip computer at 15,841 miles, says only 17mpg
city and 26 on the highway - I challenge Ford to come and look. The only way this car could have ever gotten the epa estimated 29/39 is, in my opinion, with an anorexic, midget, driver and the only thing in the rest of the car including the trunk was a toothpick. lol.

The transmission was rebuilt after only 12,000 miles. The grinding noise continues which is the result of duel clutches


Best Features

I put as high as 3 for comfort because the sound insulation and engine noise are low and lower than most other subcompact cars I tested or ones consumer reports. I put 3 on fun to drive because on the expwy: the engine, transmission, steering, and braking are very responsive. The engine is especially quiet and moves the car along effortlessly even at high speeds. The visibility is better than average. The trans grinding people report only occurs when shift 0-2. At 3 and above it's stable on my car. The rear seat is not one of my favorite features because it is severly cramped. And the electrical system failed causing false warning icons and the alarm going off every 20 minutes.


Worst Features

Completely change the transmission and put in a high quality, reliable one. Put an independent suspension in the back like you have in the focus. That rear bar is what I call a "no suspension." Get this car up to specs on the fuel economy advertised. Get some decent torque in this engine. Fix the rear seating space so passengers can fit in this car. Fix the rear windshield view which is much harder to see though at night. Extend the warranty on this car to 10 years like Kia, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, and Chevrolet, so people don't go broke after the basic warranty runs out. Consumer reports published annual auto issue says the cars reliability is below average and so is Focus

2014 Ford Fiesta Hatchback S 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

The car is brand new.


Worst Features

I want cruise control to be on all new cars. I also want power locks to have it on the keys as a must.
