  • It's A Fiesta Bit*hes! (2011 Ford Fiesta SES)

    Well after 4 years of faithful service to me, my 10 year old Chevy Tracker is officially dead.
    I've never posted a picture of it so here it is in all it's shitty glory.


    How did it die you ask? Well a combination of salt sea air and salty roads in the winter lead to this.


    Yup that's right, pretty much nothing holding in the front of that lower control arm. Talk about a scary drive!
    I'm done sinking money into a vehicle that has zero return so time for something new.

    New car requirements were:
    Less then 5 years old
    Bluetooth and all that jazz
    Moon roof
    White
    Not be stupid expensive

    Now I really wanted a truck but where I'm working away 3 weeks out of a month, there's no point. Plus buying the truck I want would be stupid expensive.
    Enter the 2011 Ford Fiesta SES Hatchback. Meets all my requirements and good on gas to boot!



    Specs:
    6 spd Auto
    Black leather interior
    Sync
    Winter Package (heated mirrors, seats, block heater)
    A/C
    Power Windows/Locks
    Keyless Entry
    Push button Start
    Moonroof
    LED Accent lighting
    Also has factory warranty until 2017

    I also got a set of winter rims and tires with it. It's being delivered tomorrow so I will take some more pictures then.

          In all seriousness, I will be doing some minor mods.
          I'm already looking into an HID retrofit, can't stand halogens. I'll be contracting this out as I just don't have the time.
          I'm also thinking Triton V3 turns and reverse light, maybe brakes lights too.
          I'll likely get some LED dome lights from VLEDs too.

          Other then that I might have the OEM rims refinished as they have some curb rash and I will likely put some decent summer rubber on them. No major mods as it's just going to be a simple daily driver.

            As long as the throttle doesn't cut out when both the gas and brake pedal is applied, something that compact and light should still be fun with an auto tranny. I prefer MT as well, but having the throttle cut out when gas and brake pedal is applied is more annoying imho.

            p.s. The unibrow makes the front look interesting.

                  It drives and handles decent plus Ford Racing makes some suspension kits for it if I ever want to improve it.
                  I'm not sure how I feel about the bug deflector.

                  ST = expensive = not what I wanted.
                  I have one fast car, I don't need two.

                        I see the toy model but where’s the car???

                        I would never fit in those. But hey, more power to ya! The MPG is near 40 I’m sure.

                        Anywho, photos of the inside??

                          Har!
                          I wouldn't have fit in this thing 6 months ago but now that I've got 30lbs off, it's not bad.
                          The gas savings is a big thing especially since the GF will be visiting her Mom a lot now since her Dad passed.

                          More photos tomorrow when it's dropped off.
