2016 Ford Fiesta Gets Low Reliability Score by Consumer Reports

Ford Fiesta logoOwners of 2016 Ford Fiestas told Consumer Reports magazine recently that although their cars are fun to ride, they were not happy with the subcompact’s rough shifting, clutch problems, noises, leaks and power equipment failures, according to Consumer Reports 2016 Annual Auto Survey

Drivers of the six-speed automated manual transmission complained the car stumbles in heavy traffic where it’s a stop-and-go situation. Consumer Reports tested the 120-horse power 1.6-liter Ford Fiesta and felt that the 5-speed manual was a bit slow, but had good fuel economy.

The sportier Ford Fiesta ST was described as being too stiff. Drivers felt it was a bit too rough to drive.

“A new car should not perform like an old clunker,” said James Johnson, a California lemon law attorney. “If you are repeatedly taking your new car in for repairs, it’s possible you may have a valid lemon law claim.”
