Hi Friends, this is a ownership review of my ford fiesta 1.6.
at first i had maruti zen LX 2001 Model, later i decided to go for a sedan my options were:
i preferred it because it was a famous sedan at that time. but due to lack of design and quality i decided not to go for it.
i preferred it because i was also a growing famous sedan in coimbatore and it felt premium and brilliant to drive.
so our final pick was the only ford fiesta.
at first i was in a decision to go for diesel fiesta but later my sales consultant told me to go for the petrol because at that time we just drive 400 to 500km per month so that my sales consultant told me to for petrol and there was a limited edition named fida edition in that there was a color named copper rust and i loved that color. so i booked the copper rust color. that was the only color dispatched from ford plant to coimbatore so that i was lucky
