Ford Fiesta owners manuals
- Regardless of the model, the Fiesta seems to have clutch problems, especially on the hydraulic system created by the cylinder rod becoming separated from the clutch pedal.
- Another issue with the Fiesta seems to appear on the water pump causing the engine idling and producing some strange sounds.
- The fifth-generation Fiesta owners reported problems on the stereo system of the car. The system has stopped working entirely or when pairing with mobile phones.
- In 2012 Ford recall the 2011 model to tackle an issue on the rear suspension. It seems that the rear axle construction did not meet the expected specifications.
The Ford Fiesta is a small car sold by Ford since 1976 over seven generations and is produced in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Mexico, China, India, Thailand, and South Africa.
At the end of 1980 the Fiesta Mark I was abandoned but sales rebegan in 2008 North America when the sixth generation of Fiesta was launched worldwide. Ford Fiesta was one of the best selling models with over 16 million items, just behind Ford Escort and the F-Series.
The team behind the project “Bobcat” was the first team that designed the Fiesta and authorized for construction by Henry Ford II in 1972. A decade earlier, due to production cost was deemed too high, Ford had voted against producing a new small. This decision changed in 1973, as the oil crisis saw a surge and the need for smaller cars started to grow.
The Fiesta was the smallest car produced by Ford in this segment with a production cost of $100 less than the Ford Escort. The car specifications where a wheelbase between the Fiat 127 and Ford Escort.
