Pardon the pun but I’m really envious of the green. I decided I wanted a darker color on my ST and settled on black. For one that green suits the car’s personality so perfectly and it probably looks clean for more than five minutes. I don’t know what I was thinking. Read more

They’re awesome cars. I love mine, and miss driving it so badly right now. (Tore my meniscus, can’t drive stick for another 4 weeks :( ) The only things I would suggest are Recaro’s if you fit comfortablely in them, they’re perfect for me, and too get the newest one you can get. There have been a few subtle updates to Read more

It’s possible they move the badge over which would remove most of that gap. Honestly besides what I’ve mentioned I’m out of ideas. It’s not the Focus because there’s a line where the badge is. We know it’s not a Fiesta. It’s not the Fusion because of the badging. The only other vehicle is the Explorer which was

It would be on the bottom right of the hatch where it says Sport. Notice how it has the slant where as the Escape is just a long line down.

Yes but Ford could easily change that if they it to. The Sport doesn’t exactly go far in terms of performance besides some extra power. It’s due for a refresh (Hence the new Lincoln MKX/Nautilus), so this would be a good way to introduce it. I definitely believe an Escape ST could be coming, just not yet. Read more

But the picture Ford teased doesn’t match. The Escape’s tailgate shoots straight down, along with the EcoSport. The only models that do have that slant at the tailgate are the Fiesta, Edge, Explorer and judging from spy shots, the next Focus. I went a little bit more in depth else where, but I concluded it’s an Edge. Read more

It seems like they could sell enough just enough to break even, but I’m sure the situation is more complicated than that. The market trending towards CUV/SUV’s and the downward slope of car sales in general are probably the nail in the coffin. They might be expecting to sell so little of those two in the future that Read more

I don’t think it was just that, small car sales are just poor in general. Everyone wants bigger CUV/SUV’s now. It was bound to happen unfortunately. The new Fiesta has so much of what I want too. Granted I am very happy with my ST, but the new one has pretty much everything I set out to buy in the first place.

From the sounds of it they’re cancelling the redesign, not the car. So instead of a new platform we could see a revised (Even possibly a significant one) Fusion instead of something all new. Read more

The 2018 U.S. Fiesta will be a carry over of the current/last generation car. And unless something changes it looks like we won’t see the new generation car here unfortunately. I really want one too.

If it makes you feel better that’s five more than I usually get in my ST. And about 100 more miles than the Mach was ever capable of. Fun times.

Wow I miss yellow right now. I wasn’t so sure the FoST could pull it off but your car proves it can every time. It hurts knowing my dad and I put in a few hours getting my car detailed and it already is dusty! Read more

You’re stuck in the same situation I was. I loved my Mach 1 for all the same reasons you like your STI. I ended up trading it in for a Fiesta ST. I miss the Mustang a lot, I got an amazing car and put so much work into it. But when I get in the Fiesta and sit in those Recaros (Best seats ever), take corners much Read more

My mom has one, absolutely incredible car. I want it so bad. And don’t even get me started on the noise. The biggest thing to worry about these cars though are the oil changes, the oil filter has to be torqued correctly or they will come off. It’s important to find a good Ford dealer who understands and will take care Read more

Funny thing, here in Dallas every one was assured there would be no gas shortage. Which then turned into everyone hearing that two refineries were down (True) and we were going to run out of gas (Which wasn’t true). This caused mass chaos and now we really do have a gas shortage. Unbelievable. My family only went Read more

Well I guess I need to work on getting a few more MPG’s! Especially right now. I’m probably going to end up buying that filter sometime soon, it sounds exactly what I want. More noise but nothing obnoxious.

How has your gas mileage been? I just crossed over 1000 and am at 21.9 MPG’s, about 250 miles on a full tank. I was hoping for a bit more, but it might have more to do with my driving and short commutes. Granted the highest I saw on the Mustang was 17, and that was really high! Read more

I keep hearing that I should do this, but I don’t think I’m going to want to mess with my NVH. I haven’t had any issues. Yet. So we’ll see. I do think I want a louder turbo noise though. Nothing crazy but I love hearing it. Hmm.
