2014 The Honda Fit has long been among the most reliable cars in our survey. The Fiesta has a patchier record. This said, getting the manual in the Ford alt least avoids the problematic dual clutch transmission. full 2014 Ford Fiesta review

Yes, I bought it used, but it had all kinds of leaks I'd never experienced before in a Ford: Auto Transmission cooler lines, thermostat, and now, I realize there is a gasoline vapor leak from somewhere in the fuel system. I can't park it in my garage because the fumes are strong. full 2003 Ford ZX2 review
