Ford Fiesta a windy beast to feast upon
Pros : Terrific ride and handling, excellent suspension and adorable looks
Cons : Pricey and never ending maintenance
Hello folks, I am Pankaj Chawaria from Pune. I was on a lookout for a sedan that could be beneficial to my needs of a powerful car with good looks, comfortable and spacious cabin and lot of features. Buying Ford Fiesta helped me to get a car of my type. It has been around 7 months since I bought the sedan. It’s the Ford Fiesta diesel Titanium Plus variant and has been going well till now at 7000 km of journey.
I thought of going for Hyundai Verna at a time but the overall build quality of the Korean car didn’t manage to satisfy me. Ford has made this car tough, reliable and driver friendly. As far as my views our concerned this is the best car in its class with plenty of innovative features and cabin comfort is also damn good.
Looks of the Fiesta are the major attractions of this American auto player along with its frugal engine which is linked to 5 speed manual gearbox. Gear shifting has been quite smooth and effortless. I had some ifs and buts in this premium kind of car in these 7 months but that’s okay until and unless the car is really not performing the task it is meant for.
The overall ride and handling of Ford Fiesta has been thrilling and going past traffic is like butter on bread for Fiesta. To cater the user, suspension system has been neatly integrated which ensures that no ‘thud’ is heard or felt inside the cabin.
I had no complains in this car except for the regular maintenance that is required. Ford need to look on this part to gain more success with its Fiesta.
