2014 Fiesta ST

Owned my 2014 fiesta ST for about 4 years. Had 70k on it when I bought it. I've done about 100k kms. It has a tune, 3inch exhaust and uprated intercooler. Never had any major issues with it. Only had a leaking master cylinder on the clutch but that was at 165k kms and wasn't a big job. The steering on the fiesta is what sold me on buying one. I know it's not the fastest car in the world but sure feels it sometimes. The interior is very cheap base fiesta but it was a 00s car originally. Would be great for someone looking to get into a cheap to run/maintain sports car/hot hatch. Lots of aftermarket bolt ons from Uk/US. Love the car to bits. I will probably keep it as long as I can afford to run 2 cars. Show details

DONT BUY!

If I could rate this car a 0 I would. Do NOT buy this death trap of a joke! I WANT COMPENSATION FORD! Never ending mechanical issues!!!! This is the last time this car will be going to a mechanic on the back of a tow truck because I’m going to be looking into a type of car more reliable! Ford, you have turned me off! NEVER AGAIN! My Holden Astra ran better then this! And that’s saying something. A car manufactured in 2014 should not of had its 4th run on the back of a tow truck due to mechanical issues! This car needs to be put off the road! It’s dangerous! Show details

Highly recommended!! Economical ✅ Reliable ✅ Practical ✅

My wife has owned a 2009 and a 2016 Ford Fiesta that were purchased new from dealership both have performed amazingly without fault. Have never had any of the issues I’ve seen reviewed on here which might be due to having maintained car very well with regular services always on time. The 2009 model we sold in 2016 had 120,000km and can confirm it is still running in perfect condition. I have no doubt the 2016 model will also perform the same. Some great things about the 2016 model is it handles well either long distance or around town, very economical with a full tank costing only 30-40$, comfortable drive with a little kick in it and smooth off the mark. Show details

What a brilliant little all rounder

Bought 2009 manual 1.6 in 2014 with 66,000km on clock for $8,700 and sold it for $6,000 five years and 50,000km later. A brilliant little driver's car with a torquey engine and great steering / suspension for a "standard" model. Had prerty much same performance as the 2007 Suzuki Swift Sport we had earlier. General quality is not that great compared to a Japanese car but it was super cheap to run parts / service wise. If I had a child looking for a first car this would be my first choice. Show details

DO NOT BUY

Ford Fiesta Automatic Powershift transmission has been known to have issues, they have been fined by ACCC but nothing is happening for customers, I have gone back 4 times since I have bought this car in 2013 and they use excuses like it's my driving or I need to speed more on the highway. I asked how many times do I need to come back before I get a refund and they said until it is fixed, this was after the second replacement. I will never buy from Ford again and now I cannot onsell as I wouldn't put someone else through this. Absolutely disgusting, I have put in a customer complaint and received no contact. Show details
