    The expectation was to accumulate rattles by now, especially after the RMM went in... However, here I am still waiting.

    I'm really curious about what they consider "dismal reliability" aside from the known DCT transmission issues!
    Mine's only got 2000 on it. I was worried about squeaks and rattles, but it's not a problem for you. That's good to know.
    2017 Magnetic, everything but the Recaros. MP 215, mountune shift kit and shift knob, Husky floor liners. That's all I'm doing, I swear!.. OK, I lied. Also added an intake hose and symposer delete. But that really is all, I swear this time!

    I have atrocious roads here in my area and I can say I have developed a few small rattles, but it's probably my fault for most. I've disassembled the interior a couple times to install various things, so I'm sure everything didn't go back to perfect. I am contemplating removing a bunch of it again and putting felt tape on the contact sections, but I also have an upgraded RMM, Bilstein shocks and lowering springs and some bracing. So I'm sure the increased rigidity of the car has contributed a little bit as well.

    Yes, especially after the dash came out and went back together. I would have put money on having a nice hidden rattle or two after that.
    Hopefully my dealer didn't glue everything back together. I should probably check... :P

    I was kinda surprised though when I went from Abarth to ST that I could fit passengers in the back seat with my wife and I in the front (wife and I are both over 6 feet tall) and in the ST we can't fit rear seat passengers with us seated comfortably. The back seat room in the ST is pretty rough considering it's a 4 door.

    Sorry to hear that. Can you elaborate on what went wrong, so I can be on the lookout?

    I must agree with Forbes.
    You should avoid buying a FiST.
    It is just not worth the ridiculously low price for so much fun.

    Too costly? I guess that's subjective, but I think most FiST owners see it as a bargain, especially if you've autocrossed and beaten cars that cost four times as much.


    I have T-shirts that are sorta like my FiST. I worry that when they get worn out, I won't be able to replace them and want to stockpile new ones so I don't have to worry in the future.

    The normal fiesta is regularly in the worst cars, or least reliable cars because of the automatic transmission.
