Most fun you can have with pants on!
April 26, 2019
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!
