Radio and lock button problems!! Ugh.

I have had my car for only 6 months or so now. It runs good and haven't had any major problems with it. I do however have many little problems with the car. My radio often times has a difficult time connecting to my USB or my Bluetooth. In past times, it has not worked at all. Also, there are times when someone in the passenger seats or one of the back seats cannot get out of the car when it says it is unlocked. I oftentimes have to lock it and unlock it again for it to work. All of the little issues are very stressful when trying to quickly go about daily routines.

Would not recommend buying this car.

Overall, I am not pleased with my car. The air and heat has broken, the radio has broken, and I feel like I have something new wrong with it every week. For example, I have to get it looked at tomorrow because something is wrong with the front end. As far as comfort goes, it is small however the trunk is a pretty good size. It is also good on gas. You can feel everything in the road when you drive it as well as being able to tell if someone other than yourself is in your car if they weigh more than 80 pounds when you drive it.

The ford fiesta is a reliable car that more than meets my everyday needs.

My car is very reliable. It has driven me cross country multiple times without issue. My gas mileage is consistently good, about 32 miles to the gallon on the freeway. The hatchback trunk lets me transport a lot more than one would expect when first seeing the car. The only downside to my car is the fact that tall people are not very comfortable riding in it. I am 5 foot even and can comfortable drive and ride in my car. Others sometimes have issues getting into my car and riding comfortably.
