2011 Ford Fiesta SE 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
I am critical of the car and dealership that sold it to me. Bought it used from RWH dealership in Knoxville, TN. If I ever have a chance to buy a new car it won't be from them. I think that because I didn't finance it and paid cash (they make more if you finance it), they pushed a bad car on me. From the moment I drove it off the lot it has had problems. First the engine light and seat belt light came on and stayed on. Took it back, the service guy cleared the engine code for an oxygen sensor and acted like it was nothing to be worried about. They gave me a loaner car so they could figure out what the other problem was ( sure they thought this wouldn't happen so soon).When I went back to pick it up after it was "fixed", it wouldn't even start , so RWH took it to a Ford dealership where it stayed for about a week. The Ford dealership replaced a battery and some sort of vacuum line which was covered by RWH. It set idle for a couple of days and wouldn't start until the third try so in a few days after the engine light came on again, I took it to the ford dealership. Had to pay over $400 for a new oxygen sensor. I know used cars come under the "buyer beware" but reputable dealers should have to back their products more. It's not like I paid them 500 bucks at a "buy here, pay here" lot. $7625.00 is a big chuck of change for me. They saw me coming - an older woman alone shopping for a used car- easy prey!
