Ford fiesta the cheap reliable car.

2018 Ford Fiesta

The performance of the vehicle is great because I do not have any issues with it driving on the road. The tires make my ride smooth and steady. The seat is comfortable front and back. The trunk has a lot of space which can be ideal for some. My favorite feature is Bluetooth because I can listen to the music straight from my phone. Another feature is having the phone install which helps me talk to people while keeping both hands on the steering wheel and sound of the car phone is loud enough for me to hear. The car also has an 911 alert on which helps when I am in an emergency situation and or when my airbag has blown up. The car is not for very big people they could easily take up the space of someone sitting behind them since they would have to push the seat back far. If you are big person typically just driving alone or with one person in the front then no problem. It is an ideal car for small people and or first time drivers because of the many safety features such as emergency brake and it is a small car. Another issue is the stigma around Ford being a bad company because with this car it is a great Ford car that does not match the stigma. This car is very reliability and has not given me issues when driving it whether it be highway, road, neighborhood, etc. since it is quality made without much flaws or issues.

Stay away from automatic trans

2018 Ford Fiesta

The fiesta has not been all it was cracked up to be for me and ppl I know with similar setups. I test drove 2 fiestas before I purchased the automatic trans version. The dual clutch system on this car is faulty from day one. It slips the clutches from day one and only gets worse as the mileage goes up. Now my car shudders, vibrates, shakes the wheel and is considered a pile of parts I cant get rid of with barely 100,000 mules on it. An automatic should be able to last the lifespan of the car. 100k on a car should be nothing now a days but to the fiesta (and the focus which has the same trans and a large scale recall) it is basically the end if the line for the car unless you are willing to shell out some cash to fix it and watch the same thing happen again to your poor little car. I say stay away from the fiesta and buy a different brand!

The Fiesta ST turbocharged engine really gets up and goes!

2018 Ford Fiesta

The ST has a different engine, transmission, brakes and wheels from the base car. It's a "hot hatch," and it performs like one. Great handling and cornering, and very reliable so far. People are always surprise by how quick it is. The ride is a little rough, but it doesn't bother me. You should test drive the ST before you get it, because some people might not like the bumpiness. Other than that, it handles like a sports car and I average 32 mpg in mixed driving. It has all the amenities; keyless entry, Car Play, cruise, sunroof, etc. It's also practical for daily driving, and carries a lot of stuff for such a small car. This car is best for a performance enthusiast. If you like sporty driving and sharp cornering, it's a blast to drive, and it's reliable and economical enough to use every day.
