Cute Car, Needs some things addressed.

2011 Ford Fiesta SE 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


I test drove this car and have decided to put off my purchase till they get some things fixed, see below and I drove the automatic (dual clutch). The car handles well and is very quiet. 1. Please use some heavier moldings where the windshield meets the hood, those on each should be molded plastic instead of soft rubber. 2. Eliminate the crazy/strange striping (piping) on the cloth seat options. 3. Cruise and a nicer (more wattage please) radio should come standard on the SE. 4. Please fix the random jerking of the dual clutch trans and the sometimes unwillingness of the car to downshift. Also 3200-3300 RPM at 70 mph is a bit high. (the trans needs a better warranty)/Needs armrest.

Best Features

VERY quiet,smooth drive. Also handles/turns well. Nice body style. One more thing to fix is there is some insulation inside the engine bay (roof pillar meets body that hangs out and got painted over. Also an armrest would be nice. C'mon Ford you are trying please fix these small things. Thanks

Worst Features

See review & do not hold options like cruise control/nicer stereo/satellite hostage for packages or higher trim levels. Cruise control should come standard on the SE as should a nicer radio with more than 40 or 80 watts. (C'mon look at what Hyundai is doing. Need a better warranty on the dual clutc
