1LE has a new stable mate! If a 1LE and a Mustang had offspring......

So after an agonizing month of not being able to decide......one test drive and an awesome salesman/dealer and I have a new car. These cars (Fiesta ST) like the 1LE, are very hard to find, as they are sold out almost everywhere. I encourage every 1LE owner to go drive one of these, they are INCREDIBLE! I cannot believe how well put together this little car is, it is so far above the competition it is not even funny. It's fast, it handles absolutely fantastic, it comfortable, quiet, and gets 35mpg! Oh and it only cost $20k fully loaded (no recaro), had $1000 back AND zero percent financing for 60 months. The very first thing I cringed about was HILL ASSIST.....but I soon discovered it has a button in the sync to turn if off (are you listening Chevy)!!!! So if a 1LE knocked up a Mustang, this is what you would get....

Everything you read or heard is right....I still cannot believe this car was under 20k.....It is so much better than the BRZ/FRS its crazy. I tell you what, I hate the bracket crap too, but in this case the dealer was so awesome, I will gladly advertise for them for a while!

I know you said 1LE, but would you recommend it to an SS driver?

LOL of course Zig, I just figured the track oriented drivers would appreciate the car the most. It is very 1LE like....stiff, nimble, quick.....and it looks cool too..

Haha, yeah. I feel like it's a similar feel to my old STi. And it's too bad there was no 1LE pkg available in 2011. :(

If a 1LE and a Mustang had offspring

This is just not done nor is it morally right.

There are reasons cats and dogs dont mate. It just ain't right.

I have a base 2015 Fiesta as a commuter car. Only paid $11k for it new.The 5-speed tranny is so smooth (particularly after break-in), you almost question whether it is engaged. Makes the 1LE feel like a tank by comparison.

I test drove one of these, and it's the only other car I've really thought about, now that I've owned my SS for a while. The speed you can carry on a back road is ludicrous, and you could eat up a stock SS in one of these, despite the power disparity.

Yes, they are difficult to find....I saw several on dealer's websites around here 2 yrs ago and by the afternoon they were no longer available. Eventually got me a Sonic RS for my DD.

20K is still better than the "leaked" price of the upcoming focus RS starting around 35k.

How do you like your Sonic RS? I am starting to shop around for the next daily driver when the Camaro goes into retirement from that duty, and that is one of the cars on my list.

Yeah, but I got 35mpg my first tank full....That's 2x the camaro and since I drive 2-3k miles per month for work, the car is free. 0/0 Payment=$301 gas savings =$311

I've read that the hill assist is terrible in the camaro, but did it work like its suppose to in the fiesta? As in release the brakes if you a press the gas, engage the clutch and start moving.
