Love this car!

This car is all you would expect. The six speed manual transmission is fantastic. There is plenty of room for five people or fold back seats down for tons of space for shopping or travel. Front wheel drive was excellent in the snow. Excellent gas mileage.

First used car I have owned

I bought this car because of the size and color. I has new features I love but not all the ones my Focus had. I am short and I still haven't found the right setting for my height and leg length. I see a cushion in my future. No trunk release on the dash but great sound and with Bluetooth I can use the phone if necessary.

Most fun you can have with pants on!

I traded 2 BORING vehicles (2015 Nissan Versa Note and 2010 Nissan Rogue) in for this 2016 Ford Fiesta ST. I’ve only had it a couple weeks so far, but it is simply the most fun car I’ve owned in the last 20 years! It’s peppy, but not fast. It’s sporty but still comfortable. It get great gas mileage (I’ve already put about 1400 miles on it and have averaged about 32.5 mpg, mostly interstate with cruise set at 75). It’s a small car, but fits my family when needed, usually it’s just me. Great stereo. Only complaints I have so far are as follows: 1.) Clutch pedal is a little on the light side, and take up happens in a very short amount of travel. 2.) no backup camera. I’m ok with this, because the mirrors provide all the info I need, but I would have expected a 2016 model to have it. 3.) brakes are developing a minor vibration when slowing from highway speeds. The dealer supposedly replaced the pads and rotors prior to delivery, but I now suspect the just resurfaced the stock rotors. No big, upgrade time!! All in all, I couldn’t be happier!

It grew on me

Usb ports, bluetooth, 2 places to add additional car chargers. I'm a big guy and at first it was a bit tight but as I kept driving it's easy to get used to.

Very safe car

This car met all the expectatives I had, except the interior space, as the leg room and shoulder space is too small for five people. But in power and safety, I am very satisfied. Oh, the Bluetooth has his days, not allwys relliable.

Learned how to drive manual in this ST

I fell in love with the Focus RS but couldn't afford it so I used Cars.com to find a used Fiesta ST to replace my 12 year old car.
