Fiesta SES by John - Gettysburg on 01/12/2013. Owned 1 year.
Pros: Great fuel mileage. Superior handling. Light steering.
Cons: Non that I can think of.
Overall review: I have been driving this car since May last year and have almost 17,000 miles on it with no problems. I put snow tires on it for the winter and drove through Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania in a snow storm after Christmas with no problems. Everyone was driving 30-40 MPH, while I was in the left lane doing 60-70 MPH. The back seat is small, as noted by several other reviews, however, I don't understand how they did not see this before they bought the car. Also, the same goes for the lack of a passenger side arm rest. That is what test drives are about.

Great Gas Mileage / Poor interior by Dena, Marion, Ohio on 12/15/2012. Trim: 2013 Ford Fiesta SE Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: We have had our Fiesta for about 4 months now and are getting a consistent 37.8 mpg. The car came with a lot of bells and whistles. The trunk is large.
Cons: The back seat leg room is non-existent, even for toddlers. The door lock buttons are on the center of the dash by the stereo rather than the doors which is very inconvenient. The Sync system in the car does not always work right. There is no arm rest for the front seat passenger which is uncomfortable. The cruise control buttons are sticking and I was not able to turn it off with the button when I needed to. All of the controls on the steering wheel are oddly placed.
Overall review: The fuel mileage is definitely keeping this car in our graces. The exterior design is very sharp for a lower priced vehicle. I also love the bluetooth, when it works. Unfortunately, this will be a "throw away" car.

A good highway car, very stylish. by Jennie, FL on 12/23/2012. Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I like the style and simplicity. It is a great car for highway driving, my favorite is the ambience in the car from the way the light comes through the windows.
Cons: It is very lightweight, which is fine, but has made me a little uncomfortable thinking I would have the worst car to be in a serious accident. The steering is very touching and lightweight as well, I would rather it be a bit sturdier.
Overall review: This is a great car, I would only change its flimsyness.

Ford Fiesta is Great. by Todd from San Pedro on 01/26/2013. Trim: 2013 Ford Fiesta S Sedan, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I have had my Fiesta two years now. My MPG is 37 (average speed is also 37) in LA traffic. I find it has great pickup and control. Don't know why everyone talks about SYNC not working. Sometimes I have to repeat the voice commands but love the bluetooth capabilities and the easy access from the lever button. Took a while to get used to the door lock button in the center of the dash instead of the doors but not a problem now. My 5 year old daughter loves the six different interior lights settings. The Fiesta replaced a 1993 Pontiac Firebird getting 15 MPG. With the cost of LA gas, my car payments net of gas savings run about $40 per month. Great investment.
Cons: Not much room in the back seats. Have had two 11 year olds use it without complaint. Not really an issue since this is my commuter car.
Overall review: Love the Fiesta. Would buy another down the road but plan on keeping this one until over 100,000 miles.

I love this car by Candy from Texas on 12/23/2012. Trim: 2013 Ford Fiesta SE Hatchback, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I love the stylish look of this car. For a small car it accelerates quickly. The sync is a great tool and works very well. The trunk is roomy. The biggest downfall is no back leg room.. For me that is not an issue since I don't have any small children. I travel 50 miles round trip for work everyday so the gas mileage is a big plus.
Cons: No back leg room
Overall review: Great car! Definitely a good buy for the price. Lots of bells and whistles for an economy car!
