No Thanks
Ditto!

Too small and a vehicle that I would not feel very secure driving.
I'm sure that it will appeal to some.

As for me, I love my Escape and plan to keep driving it for a very long time. :)

Thanks for the link, Charles ! :)

I owned an 1980 Model Fiesta and loved that little rat rod! It was fun, and easy to drive. Size was not a problem then, and shouldn't be now. 30+ mpg will dispell several fears, especially when you fold down the rear seat and realized there is almost as much space back there as in the Escape. It'll corner like it's on rails compared to the Escape, parks almost anywhere, and can cruise all day long like a big car. They actually feel like they are made out of one piece of material and there are no rattles. Do I want one, not now. But maybe when the Tribute has bitten the dust I will! :rockon:

reminds me of my escort lol. my buddy has had a few of them, and he purchased a new suzuki a few years ago, but hated it lol. 4 doors was the only reason he got rid of the little ford and got the suzuki.

I used to have early model fiestas, as loan cars from my previous dealership. I do not go to " Maughan Thiem" for service anymore. Will not give specifics , but their customer after sales service has gone crap. Became exceedingly disgruntled. :censor: :cuss: :wall: :rant: :taz:

Awesome car...and I'm waiting to see if they bring out an ST or RS version of this car...

I think it's MUCH better looking than other cars in it's class, and I'd certainly take a look at them when they become available.

we have had the fiesta over here since its inception i think in the late 70s, has grown a lot but is still a very very popular car, probably the most popular new car in the country for many of those years. i would guess it would drive a lot more refined than my 02 maverick, certainly my 06 focus does. the smallest ford over here, the Ka has also just been replaced and looks very similar to thenew fiesta, the old car however was almost revolutionary for Ford, and it introduced them as makers of fine handling cars, along with the puma, mondeo and focus of the time.

Had a look at the new model ' Fiesta ' at local dealership. It is a pleasant style. The interior appears reasonable. But overall not quite ' my cup of tea'. I like the car, but it is too small for my circumstances.

It is a nice car . Can anticipate that it will suit a persons requirements. As for my escape, it is exactly what i need. Just enough room without being a cumbersome tank. I class the escape ,as being a comfortable medium size. I am not tall so my car has a bonus. That bit extra of road height, makes for driving pleasure. Obviously this means the extra view is of benefit, as opposed to a conventional car. :) :yes: :thumb: :happy:

I love my " Little Tonka ", and have no intention of trading her in. :heart: :heart: AAAAWWW! :lol:

When I was looking at one of the Focus forums I belong to still, I found information about Ford North America announcing that they are going to release the Fiesta 6-10 months ahead of schedule in North America, with Canada getting it first. I think this is loosely based on the feedback from all the people that got to "Live" with one. This is fantastic news, and it's part of Mullally's plans to globalize Ford that much sooner (being able to buy the same car on every continent, with only model nameplates being different).
