#3234 Why no alloy wheels with SFE?

Posted by HenryR.Hall on 07 August 2011 - 07:42 AM

2011 Fiesta sedan with SFE package. Got 40.2 mpg on road trip Philadelphia to Indiana. Question: Why are aluminum alloy wheels not available with the SFE (super fuel economy) package? I'm pretty sure alloy wheels are lighter than steel, especially lighter than steel rims plus hubcaps. Is it because the steel rims and hubcaps have less wind resistance than the spokes of the alloy rims? I really would like some alloy rims. Anyone out there experimented with alloy rims and the SFE package?

#6137 all around transmission problems

Posted by John Niedrist on 08 July 2014 - 05:32 PM

I have had my 2013 Fiesta for about a year and a half. And from day 1 I've had nothing but problems. I've had it to the dealer a couple times and was told what I was experiencing was normal. Normal? Transmission making all kinds of noises. It feels like it's missing gears when it's shifting. But it's normal they said. I've complained to Ford customer service, nothing was done. But Ford got their money, and the customer (me) gets the shaft. Very unhappy and disappointed with Ford.

#5696 Fiesta in the snow

Posted by Cobra348 on 18 January 2014 - 12:00 AM

I'm Central NY and here's what I can tell you ... OEM tires (Kumho or Hankook) are NOT good in the snow we get.  Get yourself a set of true snows OR something very good snow.ice rated.  What I did was put the snow/ice ones on the OEM rims, kept OEM tires and put them on a set of rims I got from TireRack for Summer use.  Swap on/off when the seasons change!

 

The above is based on Kumho Solus usage and on the advice of the local Goodyear Manager regarding the Hankooks.  I'll tell you more on Hankook as soon as we get some snow.  I got a new '14 SE sedan and I'm going to see how Hankook handles things.  I have Kumho OEM tires from my '12 on Sport Tuning T10 riums for Summer.

#4537 My Fiesta was the clear choice over the Volt

Posted by Mike62 on 06 September 2012 - 12:53 AM

$31,500 for the Chevy Volt with the maximum tax incentive. Gets up to 40 mpg when not running on electric.

$14,000 for my Fiesta. No tax incentive but it too gets up to 40 mpg.

It sure will be nice using that $17,500 for other things...and saving $$$ on my electric bill!

#1527 Top three reasons why you bought a Ford Fiesta 2011 in the US

Posted by yankee013 on 22 November 2010 - 05:13 AM

Hi guys!!
I'm a business student in England, and as part of my marketing strategy assignment I am writing about the success of the Ford Fiesta 2011 in the US market.
I would really appreciate it if you could post the three main reasons why you bought the Ford Fiesta 2011 (e.g. technical reasons, value for money, image of the brand etc)
Thanks so much in advance :)


I'd say
1. value for money - fuel efficient, price of car
2. fun to drive - good handling
3. packed with features that small cars don't usually have

Affordability was theoretically the first priority. But for me, affordability isn't just a matter of acquisition, but also one of using the vehicle as well. I could have gotten a lower price from another company. But I wouldn't have gotten the same level of gas mileage.

Safety is another issue that helped decide the matter. For it's class, it currently has the highest safety rating. And last time I checked, it was still the only one to have passed a rollover test. Aside from being safer to use, it also gets a safer vehicle discount when buying insurance, making ownership that much more affordable.

#7660 wheel sizes for 2013 Fiesta zetec

Posted by Robert Lane on 08 January 2016 - 03:10 PM

DO you

 

Jules,

I've just picked up my 64 Fiesta 1.0t ecoboost (poweshift), today .

I too was also thinking about fitting some winters to mine. Probably go with 14" steelies, with 175/65 tyres, as stipulated within the owners manual. There seems to be a bigger variation of possible tyres sizes if you go with 15's. That's if they fit? Cant help you with exact wheel offset size, as I'm new to ford. Had a spare set of winters for my recently sold Astra

 

Do they offer the Bridgestone Blizzaks in the U.K.?

#6416 wheel sizes for 2013 Fiesta zetec

Posted by Jules59 on 26 October 2014 - 02:05 PM

Im putting together a winter set of wheels - what 15" wheel specification  do I need for 2013 Fiesta Zetec 1.0T Ecoboost.
 
Ive got a set of alloys (in very good condition) from a Focus which Im told will fit a Mk7 Fiesta
 
They are genuine Ford   6Jx15 H2. Ive measured the PCD to be 108mm. But the offset is ET50 . Will they fit without catching on anything or is the ET50 too much (my internet research suggests it should be between 35 and 45 , will another 5mm make any difference?

It amazes me that these electric and hybrid vehicles appeal to anyone! The initial outlay, not to mention the costs of repairing this "technology" once the warranty expires, makes me wonder why anyone would even give them a second thought.

#2481 6 Speed auto at low speed

Posted by mazoom on 02 April 2011 - 05:23 PM

After changing my muffler for looks and performance, I've noticed my Fiesta drives a LOT better. With a twin straight-tip muffler that was installed, the acceleration is both faster and smoother with the new muffler vs. stock muffler. I couldn't believe the length and size of the stock muffler - it's nearly twice the size of most mufflers I've seen on vehicles nearly twice the size! For the price ($200), the modification was well worth it!

#1544 Top three reasons why you bought a Ford Fiesta 2011 in the US

Posted by Corvair on 25 November 2010 - 08:16 PM

1. I like small cars, and I wanted one that was nice, not a cheap stipped down little car like most of what we get. I even have heated seats. -30 C. happens a couple times a year. My Fiesta is actually quieter than my old and much more expensive Toyota.
2. Safety. I drive to work about 50 km each way in all kinds of weather. Snow, sleet, freezing rain and everything else. Stablity program, ABS and traction control were a must, as were side air bags. Old car had none of this. Also a high crash test raing.
3. Good gas milage, or what ever you call it with the metric system.

It was also nice that the car dealership was only 5 miles from home.

#6166 Hi from Keleefornia

Posted by Sting Ray on 21 July 2014 - 12:27 PM

Hello Fellow Ford Fiesta Fanatics!  We purchased a white 2014 SE with moonroof  this past week-end.  Got it home and clay barred and waxed it.

 

Between the 150 miles a day and premium fuel, we needed a car to take the pressure off our sports car and the Fiesta seemed like the right choice.  Looking forward to participating on the forum.  Cheers.
