    You are correct. The whole purpose of a lease is to drive something new every few years and keep within the miles.

But I take it to Ford and their solution is a reprogram for the steering, or an alignment, or replace a rotor. Every time charging me labor and solving nothing.

    As for me, I've been thinking of trading mine in for one with a sunroof...and while I'm at it, younger with less mileage, and in a color that is more to my liking.

    I've put so much into getting it going as I like though to best fit my usage, that it might not happen anytime soon...besides I think I might want to at least wait until it's fully paid off.

    I've also been considering a jeep or truck for some offroad use.

    Don't know if the spontaneous shattering issues have been fully addressed, but wouldn't a panoramic be so nice? My seat is all the way back, but the back is straight. Certainly better than nothing, but the Fiesta's roof could be pushed a tad forward and made larger. The tech that allows you to turn glass from opaque to transparent with electric current has been around for some time; used with hospital patent rooms. Wonder if it's durable/stable enough for auto glass? Still won't come close to the sun roof on my motorcycle though....

    Some people are just crazy indecisive and get bored easy..... Wait that's me lol. I got rid of mine once I had hit the point of needing a bigger turbo to get the desired acceleration that I wanted. Also the car was starting to rattle like crazy. I know its an american car (I have owned plenty) but there was an really loud creaking noise developing in the driver side door panel. This was my second hot hatch (had a Golf R for a brief period of time) and I loved the concept I just preferred the muscle car styling. Just depends on where you priorities are and how you spend your money. I am not big on spending a bunch of dough for a super fancy house and don't travel much so the cars are my vice.

    Those are nice, but the main reason I like the sunroof is for the extra ventillation. Cruising down the highway with the sunroof open works for all but the hottest days...even here in SoCal. And personally, I prefer it to the a/c anyway (except of course on the hottest days). Leaving the sunroof cracked while parked keeps the car cool too (except for the hottest days) and even if you don't, opening it after entering it (even on the hottest days) nearly instantly cools the whole car down to a reasonable temperature.

    I sure do miss it...but at least now I have a motorcycle again. Unfortunately winter is just around the corner, but I'll be riding it anyway.

    I prefer muscle cars styling too. Only reason I have a hot hatch is because muscle cars can't comfortably load/unload the stuff I need to carry on a regular basis. That said I'm glad I found/bought my FiST. It's actually more fun to drive during my commute, easier to park, and mileage doesn't hurt. It turns less heads, but I'm starting to see that as a good thing now...

    The booger ain't going anywhere any time soon. I would like to upgrade the intercooler and add a bigger puma speed turbo to him in the next few years. I would also like to get some konig 16x8 flow form wheels
