Great car with good heating and cooling plus car ports for charging and music.

2012 Ford Fiesta S

I really love my Ford Fiesta. It is the perfect size for me at college because I can put back seats down if I need to have more trunk space. Plus the back seat has enough room for people to sit comfortably. Unfortunately, the air conditioning is only located in the front seats of the car, so in the summer time it can be slightly uncomfortable to sit in the back, when it's hot. The mileage is pretty good, and I only need about $20-25 to fill the tank when it's empty, or close to empty. The heating and cooling are both effective in doing their respective jobs pretty quickly after turning them on, and the options of where you want heated or cooled (face, feet, both, etc.) are very effective. There are USB and auxiliary cord spots which are very useful to have as well as two spots to plug in car charging ports. Overall the car is great and I would definitely recommend it!

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

2012 Ford Fiesta S

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.

Great gas mileage in my Ford Fiesta!

2012 Ford Fiesta S

I love my little fiesta! The best thing about it is that I get 35 mpg. I commute for work and this makes a huge difference in amount I spend for gas. The fiesta handles great. For a small car, it is very comfortable. I would not recommend this vehicle for families, as there is not much leg room in the back seat. I have only had my fiesta for a few months. So far, knock on wood, I haven't had any problems at all with mine.

2012 fiesta review. Small but functional, great car.

2012 Ford Fiesta S

It's a small car, but feels more roomy than it actually is. It's been an excellent car, nothing needed to be done more than normal routine maintenance. Gets about 30 to 36 miles to the gallon, depending on type of gas. Very comfortable. Does have a little bit of road noise probably because it's so low to the ground, but that's to be expected. Has good performance for such a small car. Very good pick up.

The Mykey feature, its is great

2012 Ford Fiesta S

I just got my car not too long ago, and so far it is the best car I have yet owned. It has built in Bluetooth and I can easily hook up my phone to it and answer calls without having to use my phone. It also has a feature called 'MyKey' and you can adjust things such as the volume and you could even set a speed limit on yourself. It is very handy. Overall great small car.

My car is a 2012 ford fiesta. It has four doors and is a manual.

2012 Ford Fiesta S

My car is grey for driving to work and small trips here and there. It is a manual and I love how easy shifting is. It has the sync installed in the car and it works decently. The lights are still very good for it being a 2012 car. There has been no serious issues with the car just some little wear and tear here and there. Overall, I love my car.

- Sara L

Great, affordable ford fiesta!

2012 Ford Fiesta S

I love my ford fiesta! It is a smooth drive, very quiet, and all around a good car. I haven't had any problems with it so far and it was very affordable. I have taken this car on several 15 hour plus road trips and it has always done great! It is relatively comfortable for a car and it has plenty of space. I highly recommend this car!

Good the bad and the ugly.

2012 Ford Fiesta S

Not many huge issues but a lot of electrical sensors warning lights and the big was the transmission control module but covered free and now all is well. Just a lot of wasted time. The best thing is the incredible gas mileage got from Fresno to Vacaville ca to Tulare on 20 bucks in gas @2.459/gal. I believe 42-43 mpg.

Reason to not buy a Ford Fiesta

2012 Ford Fiesta S

Not really enough room to have a rear facing infant seat unless you are a very short person. Not a lot of get up and go have to make sure there is plenty of room to be able to pull out into traffic. A lot of transmission shudder especially on take off. Not a lot of cargo space can barely get a child stroller in trunk

- Rob W

Many parts break but reliable for years.

2012 Ford Fiesta S

I have had to replace many things like the radio, engine fan, etc. I have had it for many years (2012) and plan to own it until it consistently starts to break down. It is a standard transmission. There are no features like back up camera or other sensors, that are normally now standard in newer cars.

I love my ford fiesta it gets good gas mileage

2012 Ford Fiesta S

I really love my car it does not have many issues. I did have to get my transmission fixed because of a mechanical error but ford fixed it for free. It also begins to stutter if you wait too long to get your oil changed. It is very good on gas mileage it gets about 33 miles per gallon so that's good.

- Mariah J

It is a good car works well.

2012 Ford Fiesta S

It is good and reliable, but has its issues. Sometimes it overheats and recently I had to change the battery and starter. Other than that it works fine everything else is not an issues. Plenty of space for everyone. Having a new baby space is important to make sure everything we need fits in the car.

Ford Fiesta: Reliable And Affordable.

2012 Ford Fiesta S

The 2012 Ford Fiesta is pretty good on gas. The engine is pretty small though so it might have some trouble on hills. Most of my commute is highway driving though so once you're cruising, it's not an issue. I'm around 80,000 miles and a fan did break in the AC unit, which was a pricey fix though.

- Timothy M

Very easy, comfortable, and affordable car.

2012 Ford Fiesta S

Very comfortable and small! A very conscientious car to drive around, not a lot of wasted gas! Cheap to fill up tank! Electronically filled with new devices! Good quality. Many colors to choose from! Little car but still fits 5 people, and many groceries! Spacious on the inside and comfortable.
