I am the proud owner of a 2009 1.6 Titanium Fiesta, which I have owned for over a year. I was attracted to this specific model thanks to the wealth of extras (aka gadgets) associated with top model cars. Cruise, A/C, electric folding wing mirrors and an auto-dimming rear view mirror to name but a few. I'm pleased to say, 5 years in, everything still works as it should! Onto the best part, out on the road the Fiesta is fantastic to drive. The 1.6 petrol is responsive, powerful and refined. I average 41.5 mpg! The steering is tight, perfectly weighted with plenty of 'feel'. Experienced drivers will understand where I'm coming from. Moving on to the cabin. The stereo is superb, the seats are ideally suited for long journeys, with extra lumbar adjustment for the driver. Road noise is a minimum, admittedly the low profile tyres don't help, the tyre rumble is easily drowned by the stereo. If pushed to find fault, on my vehicle the foot brake has excess travel. I've had the system bled which reduces travel, until a few months later, when it seems to need bleeding/tightening again. I can live with this, the brakes are strong when applied, perhaps I'm being too picky. On this note, a Ford dealer told me it was a characteristic of the car... who knows! Overall, I would totally recommend buying one, and would replace mine with another without a second thought.
