What do you think of the car coming back in the states? From what I've read (which isn't much), it has been ranked very well in England for the last few years. I checked out the vehicle a bit on Fordvehicles.com, its kinda a cool small sedan. I can't stand the the word Fiesta for a vehicle...probably my biggest drawback is the name. How do you think the vehicle will run and will it sell well?

'coming back' is a misleading term. that's like saying the 04-06 GTO was a 'comeback'. there's really no relation between this car and the one that used to be sold here years ago (and please, don't confuse it for the Festiva).

i, for one, am really excited about it. like the Focus was when it first came here, it will be an exciting addition to Ford's lineup with some Euro flare. i just hope Ford learned their lesson from the Focus and keeps giving us whatever Europe gets. of course, i also wish i could fit, but that's another story entirely.

Mike

I think "Fiesta" is a terrible name. I just hear it and think of cheap mexican garbage.

Thanks for that useless bit of smack talk.

This car is a step in the right direction, a well built small car that gets good fuel economy and offers some driving fun.

But, it is small and has roots from across the ocean. Therefore, a certain group on this board will immediately find something bad to say about it.

Even if all they can find fault with is the name, and in a vaguely bigoted manner to boot.

I remember the old Fiesta back in the 80's when I was a kid. The new Fiesta is actually related (but obviously updated).

Only thing that worries is a first year car always has issues. I've always said I wouldn't buy a first year model since they usually don't get it right til the 3rd year.

Well, most Fords are made in Mexico, aren't they?

The car may be OK but IMHO "Fiesta" is too close to the old "Festiva" which was a very small, cheap Ford back in the 80's -

I agree. They need to get away from that.

Only a few.

I agree the Fiesta name is kinda stupid, but who cares? Some of my fave cars on earth have lame names (ie Integra, Miata, etc). But the Fiesta is a solid little car, HUGELY popular in Europe, where even many have taken the Fiesta and turned them into fire-breathing monsters. And sooner or later, the Fiesta is going to replace the Focus in the WRC. Its a great little car.
