#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.

Thanks!

 

Just joined up, as I have decided my next car will be a 2015 Fiesta... gonna wait until the year-end deals to buy, as I will sell my current two cars prior to making the purchase. I have been doing my homework, and reading various articles and watching various YouTube reviews of the 2015 Fiesta, and I am pretty impressed with its quality and more premium look than most small cars. So far, this is what I'm looking to get:

 

- 2015 Ford Fiesta SE Hatch

 

- Blue Candy exterior

 

- Light Stone interior

 

- 6-speed automatic

 

I REALLY wish the SE came with the rear-view camera, since those will be mandatory by law in 2016, I think, but I'm not going to upgrade to the Titanium model just for that, and SiriusXM, which I also want... those two items alone don't justify spending an extra $3000, to me, at least.

 

Currently, I have a 2005 Ford Focus ZX3 as my daily driver/work car, and a 1987 Mercedes 300E as my second car. As stated above, I will sell both of those before I buy the new Fiesta.

#5839 Oil Changes

Posted by kstarlin on 25 March 2014 - 11:37 AM

I have a 2013 Fiesta, with about 50K on it. I changed the oil at 3K (dealer's dime) and every 10K after that. I've had no problems and the dealer has not recommended any other interval. They told me that 10K is what is recommended by Ford and them. I can usually find a coupon to make the oil change 29.99, so worth it to let them do it with recommended parts.

DSP, I have no idea.

 

Battery icon means it isn't be charged enough.  Like your alternator has failed.  If your battery is bad, it won't come on!

I have three Mustang Shelby models; although, my daily driver is a Ford Fiesta. Love the Mustangs, but for efficiency, the Fiesta is tops!

#2697 Greetings Fellow Humans

Posted by pkleonard on 05 May 2011 - 08:27 PM

Well, it's been 6 months since I finally got the call from my local dealer saying my pre-ordered Blue Flame Fiesta sedan had arrived. Between the terrible flooding in Texas in the late Summer of 2010 and some other snags involving part availability, my Fiesta's arrival date moved from "late July at the latest" (dealer's assurance) to "early August" (missed that one too) to finally "it's here!" just a day or two shy of October. By that time I was drooling on my keyboard as I went out the Fiesta website each day. Man oh man but the wait was worth it. I *love* this car!

Now if I can just convince our bottomless pit of a government not to tax me by the mile. I've become as 'green' as I can get with this car... there ain't no more green to squeeze outta me!

#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!

#1773 New SE Owner

Posted by Richard-NC on 06 January 2011 - 04:42 PM

Yup.

In fact, if you go to the Ford Motors Fiesta website, look up the available models, go to the column for Hatch SE and at the bottom it says Equipment and Options...click on Sirius and it specifically says it is in the SES and SE models. The dealer says...not so.

So, valid room for confusion, and a real problem for Ford if somebody picks up on this as false advertising.
