'13 Fiesta S model a great value
By eurok on


2013 Ford Fiesta S 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


The base model makes a great commuter or single person/small family. With the 5 speed manual, it has oodles of power and handling is precise. Seats are very comfortable in front, cloth is high quality, and trans shifts very smoothly. Seat height is easy to adjust, the telescoping wheel helps driving position. What's lacking in the base model is power windows, CD (why?-never use)/sync, cruise. Fortunately Ford included an aux jack for phone or ipod. With the high cost of used cars these days, a new '13 was only about $2K more than similarly equipped 11's.

I didn't expect to, but three years after purchase I sold the car to one of the few under-40's who can drive a manual. The used car market flipped to surplus and the Fiesta lost 55% of its value in 3 years. I had no problems apart from a malfunctioning dome lamp during that time. I appreciated the huge trunk, room for 4 slim people, and the excellent driving experience. In retrospect, I would have been better off leasing or getting a vehicle with lower depreciation.
