You'll have to replace the transmission!

This is a nice looking, affordable little car that gets great gas mileage. Sadly, Ford knowingly installed defective transmissions in these. Ford has known these hybrid transmissions have a major design flaw for many years, but they continued to put them in a million small cars. Maybe that's why Ford doesn't make cars any more!

Need to recall all fiesta and burn them

I hate ford now. The company knew the dual transmission were bad and still sold them. My 2014 ford fiesta over heating the first year with my daughter in the summer heat. It jerks acceleration hesitation. And computer ignition won't start at times this car is not dependable and save. Finally the transmission went out and left me stranded with my little girl at night before Thanksgiving I did some research and found out that Ford has a lawsuit for the transmission problem. I have lost money and time. I never knew i would buy a lemon ford.

First Ford I've owned

I needed a economical, sporty looking little commuter car and the Ford Fiesta fit the bill nicely. Hoping it will prove reliable as reviews seem to indicate.

Little thing is a fuel saver

This car is perfect for your daily commute! It saves gas like crazy. 20$ to fill up the tank. And would be a great first car.

Serious transmission & quality issues

I genuinely loved this car when it was new. I bought a 2014 Fiesta Titanium sedan, automatic 6-speed "Powershift" transmission, with six miles on the odometer the summer of 2014. For the first three years, this car ran SPECTACULARLY and was completely trouble-free. I was thrilled to have a car that reflected all the positive reviews. Fortunately, I purchased both the Ford extended warranty and the Ford service contract: these purchases proved wise, six years on. Just after the standard 3-year, 36,000 mile warranty expired, I had my first major transmission issue (complete failure). This repair took a total of five (right - FIVE) attempts to address and involved reprogramming the tran, replacing clutches in the tran, getting a new mother-board for the tran, flashing and re-flashing the motherboard in the tran, new software for the tran, etc. As of this date, I'm actually unsure the problem is truly fixed: I have no faith the car will remain running - so I never leave the city where I live. Somewhere in the time-frame these transmission issues started, I discovered a small amount of water in the trunk. At first, I just dismissed this water as "noise" as it seemed trivial compared to the transmission issue. That dismissal was a foolish move on my part. Eventually, the water volume became sufficient to require a trip to the dealer: one day, loading groceries into the back seat, I noted water dripping into the cabin from the top-right of the rear windshield, trickle along the back of the rear seat, and disappear below... so I popped the trunk. I found a goodly-gallon of water in my all-weather trunk-liner (thank HEAVEN that I purchased that feature). Heading into my third attempt to fix this problem in Summer, 2020, my dealer informed me that, if a welded seam is responsible for the leak, despite the warranty and service contract, I will have to pay. Two prior attempts to fix this leak failed miserably. I finally decided keeping this vehicle was a bad decision - that a car should work properly in the first six years, 45,000 miles if maintained per manufacturer specs & garaged nightly. So, I have purchased another (NOT Ford) car. After this experience, I will never, EVER, have a Ford again: my general impression is "Ford Quality" ends at the surface paint. #FordQuality #FiestaQuality #FixOrRepairDaily #FordSucks #FordisJunk

This car is a lemon!

My engine keeps overheating ( the coolant is full)and there seems to be something wrong with the transmission. I’ve had this car for about 10 months and I’m Very disappointed (I bought it from a dealership)

Very economical, just what I had been looking for.

The car is exactly what I was wanting, I have another vehicle that I wanted to keep the miles off of as much as possible. Very clean little car.
