    So happy!
    I ordered my ST before I test drove the damn thing at the Eco Boost event, what am I nuts?


    Apparently NOT.

    The awesome thing this isn't the first big news, Road and Track's recent article gave a third place finish out of 13 sports cars that had an average selling price of $127k, Popular Mechanics named it 2014 best handling car and Car and Driver included it in the top 10 best 2014 cars and all of the video reviews give the car very positive reviews. Makes me feel good about my decision to buy this little rocket hot hatch.

    You all made a good choice. The EcoBoost challenge sold me on this car

    Cheapest car I've owned... But damn is it grin worthy !
    Pleasantly surprised how much I've been enjoying it.

    Traded in a vehicle that cost twice as much, and came from another car that had more than twice the power... For daily purposes, this car is far more enjoyable. A great buy & a fantastic balance of fun/performance/practicality/economical etc...

    I had never driven one or sat in one prior to ordering..... I did test out a Focus ST, and a regular Fiesta though before mine ever arrived. Those two drives had me convinced, that the FiST would be a good choice.

    Tested out many other vehicles... a wide variety... And it's easily at the top of the fun list. And the bottom of the cost list. And right back up near the top of the fuel efficiency list. That's a pretty good formula for success if you ask me.

    I've never even sat in one. I hope I like it when it comes in. I was at the Boss Track Attack at Miller motorsports park and they were checking out instructors in the Fiesta ST. Just watching the car sold me. The drivers there loved the car and couldn't say enough good things about it. Also, getting to go to the octane booster at MMP will be cool too.

    I too ordered before the EcoBoost Challenge but it sure clinched the deal.
