Summary:

Great looks, but not great enough to make the Fiesta a decent car

Faults:

The power steering gives a clicking noise as I turn right or left after having 5000Km, and the dealer said it is normal!!!

When I start the engine, especially when cold, it knocks and vibrates, but it goes back into normal operation! The dealer said it is something normal!!!

The interior rattled from the first day!

The door are very flimsy and close with a very strange sound, as if they are going to break!

The paint scratches off easily! After a year of ownership, the paint is full of stone chips and scratches.

The automatic transmission is not top notch!

General Comments:

This car's handling is amazing! Very sharp and responsive.

ABS system works well.

It has a bouncy ride and is noisy at speed.

Exterior and interior looks are the most attractive thing about this car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
