The best car under $18,000

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


This is the most fun on 4 wheels I've ever had. I let people drive my car and they compare it to a high performance mini-sports sedan. The thing corners like it's on rails, gets over 40mpg regularly, has one of the BEST sounding stereo systems from the factory and has safety features out the wazoo. The up and coming 2014 Fiesta ST will be incredible. My car, with 120hp, accelerates fine. I can't imagine it with almost 200hp!!

Best Features

Ride quality and comfort, awesome sounding stereo, ability to stream in Pandora wirelessly through bluetooth with all needed controls right there on the steering wheel, bluetooth to make phone calls using the car and never even needing to touch the phone, very good headlights, shift light on the dash, heated seats will burn your bottom! Ability to run a vehicle health report from the vehicle while cruising down the highway, that you can obtain once you stop and have internet access. You can also get free turn-by-turn directions from Sync. The distance the remote key thingy works from the car is incredible, over 200 feet!

Worst Features

Ok, I'm really being picky here, but the transmission has the engine at about 3200rpm at 75mph. That's a little steep, considering the automated manual version of this car is turning about 2600 at the same speed. But I still get over 40mpg at that RPM! Maybe they could put some button or lever to open the trunk from inside the car, right now the only way into it is either folding down the rear seats or using the key dongle thingy.
