2012 Ford Fiesta SE 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


I loved this car till it had 6500 miles. Car started to act lke the choke was coming on when slowing: car would almost stall out at stops. Took it in for service. they said that was normalfor this yr model. They actually gave me printed "tech notice" saying this was normal!!! I went on a 300 mile trip gas mileage went from 41 to 35 mpg AND it now over rev's to shift. 1st and 2nd fair but reves to 5500 rpm from 3k to down shift. also over revs to down shift when passing and you can feel 3,4,5, gears as a mush bal and takes about 2 seconds to shift. Dangerous on the interstate!!!!!

Best Features

Was a great car now it is approaching hatred and hopefully will npt end in court. stay tuned for updates.

Worst Features

Put a quality transmission in car. Repete, Repete.

Tell them normal is getting into accidents from manufaturer defects.my fiesta recently towed 15000 would not go into gear and almost rear ended by a semi when it finally went into gear at 25 mph on the highway.
