Ford Fiesta Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Ford Fiesta reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Ford Fiestas with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Ford Fiestas that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Ford Fiesta lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Ford Fiesta has been recently.
