2011 Ford Fiesta SES 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased a 2011 Ford Fiesta in August of 2010.
It is an automatic, not manual transmission. Within a month it was back at Ford with transmission issues and has continued to have problems despite at least 10 trips to the Ford Shop.
I was told by Ford Engineer that it must be the way I was driving it.
They felt I was breaking with my left foot with my foot not completely off the gas.
I do not break with my left foot.
I just had it voluntarily repossessed as I cannot in good conscious sell it to somebody.
This was after the New Car Lemon Law process and denied, I offered to walk away from it and have the dealer resell it and laughed at for being upside down when asked to trade it in.

Best Features

None that were worth the trouble of the bad transmission!

Worst Features

Ford should stand behind their products. I've noticed there is not a selection for any Ford Fiesta Review with an automatic transmission. All reviews are for manual transmission. Hmmmmmmmm????????
