Throttle Broken at 45K highway miles
By jt18 on


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


Driven gently, and properly maintained, this vehicle has only given me a few problems.

The arm rest broke after one year, I'm not a big person and I didn't abuse the arm rest, it just broke one day when I leaned on it to adjust the seat.

The throttle body started failing after about 40K miles, idling erratically, lurching on the highway, stalling at stoplights and randomly racing the engine while idling. Took it to be repaired, of course it is NOT covered under the power train warranty. Cost $900 to repair! Strange, I would have expected the throttle box to be considered part of the power train.

It does handle fairly well in rain and snow as long as it's not too deep.
