    Forbes labeled the Fiesta as 1 of 13 new cars to avoid buying. They complained about dependability, rear seat room, and feel it is overpriced.

(The sporty ST version fares better, but is costly.) It scored below average in the JD Power Dependability study, and is expected to hold onto just 44% of its original value after three years and 29% after five years.
    Not sure why they are complaining about the ST being costly. When you compare the power-to-$ ratio to other vehicles (don't forget to include vehicle weight too), the ST is a bargain. Rear passenger leg room might be a valid complaint if both the driver and front passenger are taller than 6 feet and need to extend the front seats back as far as they go. I only have 4,300 miles on my FiST so I can't speak much for dependability but I can say I've not had a single issue with it since taking delivery back in September.
