gear whine in 5th gear
Like everything about this car except transmission gear whine in 5th gear (manual transmission), like traveling on the highway so not good. Dealer says they will rebuild the transmission but I'm thinking there is too big of downside to that. Waited a long time to get a new car and a Ford so really dissapointing, will probably drive a year and trade.
Automatic transmission is a disaster
I bought this car for good gas mileage as I have a lengthy commute. The vehicle performed well for the first 5K miles but since then I have been in and out of the dealership with automatic transmission problems. My Fiesta now has 23K miles and has been to the dealer five times for transmission work. The last two visits have resulted in major repairs in an attempt to fix the problem and still the problem persists. The transmission shudders, hesitates, and lurches in stop and go traffic or when slowing then starting up again such as at a stop light or stop sign. The dealership has acknowledged there is a problem with this transmission but thus far has refused to replace the transmission. Avoid
Don't listen to them - This car is great
First off - DO YOU RESEARCH!!!!! There are recalls for certain parts for this car. They are completely free to have fixed. I did have to have the clutch replaced in my car. (I have the hatchback SFE) This was a recall that Ford had on this model. I waited around 3 months for my service center to receive the part, took it in and had the car back the next day. Prior to the replacement part, there was an engine shudder coming out of first. I can see where this is a problem. This is not a transmission issue. So don't let that throw you off, Ford replaced the part with no questions asked and it didn't cost me a thing. I will continue to have to get the clutch replaced until my warranty is up. Then I'll probably sell it. The gas mileage is amazing on this car. I refuel once a week for 20 bucks. And I drive a ton. Oil changes are painless. I haven't had to replace or fix a single thing yet on it. The only thing I don't like about the car is the space in the back for passengers. It's fairly small in the leg room area. For a couple that's always on the go, it's absolutely perfect! The acceleration is amazing, turning is amazing, I feel like I'm driving my passat for less than half the price for maintenance. No leaks, it's not loud, the transmission runs perfectly fine, my door latches work perfectly fine, everything.
More About This Model

The almost supernatural growth of the subcompact segment proves car buyers in America are becoming more than off-handedly interested in better fuel economy. It's now almost mandatory for full-line automakers to offer at least one or two cars (and soon, crossovers?) sporting the 40 mpg rating on the EPA highway cycle, which has emerged as today's fuel-sipper benchmark.

The stylish 2012 Ford Fiesta — an all-new car introduced in 2011 — churns out the requisite 40-mpg rating, but you have to plump for the extra-cost Super Fuel Economy (SFE) package to get it. And going SFE does impose some limitations on how you can equip the Fiesta.

The $695 SFE package can be specified only for the Fiesta four-door sedan — less stylistically expressive than the oh-so-Euro Fiesta hatchback — and you must choose the sedan's midlevel SE trim. Moreover, choosing the Fiesta's SFE package also demands the optional $1,070 "Powershift" automatic transmission. Most buyers insist on an automatic anyway, but the traditional path to optimum fuel economy has been with a manual transmission. So if you want a Fiesta that delivers 40 mpg on the highway (as opposed to the 39-mpg rating for the standard automatic-transmission Fiesta), you must get the four-door SE sedan with an automatic transmission to purchase the SFE package.

Aside from the transmission, the SFE package includes cruise control, low-rolling-resistance tires and a number of aerodynamic trim pieces, including shutters that block drag-inducing air from backing up within the engine compartment.

Meanwhile, Hyundai never tires of saying that each and every variant of its all-new 2012 Hyundai Accent achieves the 40-mpg highway rating, as does the brand's larger Hyundai Elantra sedan, too. And other newer rivals for the Fiesta SFE, such as the turbocharged 2012 Chevrolet Sonic hatchback also boast 40 mpg on the sticker. How quickly has 40 mpg become the new standard? The Honda Fit, long reputed as one of the snazzier choices in the subcompact market but way overdue for a refresh as the 2012 calendar year begins, manages a highway fuel economy rating of just 33 mpg.
