    Most comprehensive review of the FiST's handling attributes I've seen to date here. Plus a bit of fun with Ken Block.

    Everyone knows that's because Canadian ST's are faster...

    Its actually cheaper in Canada because Recaros are standard and Canadian dollars are just as fake as their quarters.

    Hehe,

    Recaros are standard, but we still pay for them. Just no choice in the matter.

    Pricing out on both US and CA websites with the same options factored in... It's about 3K more expensive for my car in Canada than the US. Before taxes..

    We pay 1,000 more in fee's/dest charges... And taxes are like 3.5k for my car (12%) . (I don't know what taxes down there would be or how that works).

    Now, even though our money might look like monopoly money for you guys down south, it's 97 cents to the dollar at the moment. :p
    And since our beer is better, we have to have different colored money... How else are we to know how much we are paying the cab drivers. I can't imagine getting home if all my money was green !! Be some happy waitresses & cab drivers, that's for sure... lol

    Still paying a couple piggy banks more for the Fiesta's up here.

    And then comes insurance time for those of us unfortunate enough to be in BC... ICBC is nasty & expensive. And you don't get a choice in going through them or not for the primary insurance coverage.

    I have maximum discount & I think my insurance is going to be around 2.5k for the year. If I remember correctly, insurance on my Camaro was 5 or 6 k for a year. That was disgusting!

    Funny about the money....when I go to Cabo each year I hold out a hand full of change and say, "don't hurt me...."

    Its not all doom and gloom buying a FiST in Canada....with employee discount (at the time ) mine cost 26,000 fully loaded.( nav,rado wheels,moon roof & recaro's). Add to that 0 percent financing for 72 months with nothing down, so using Fords $$ interest free ;) As well my insurance works out to payments of $118.00...not too shaby :D Taxes and dealer fee's ,well can't do too much about that.

    Taxes and dealer fees were extra.

    The writer obviously does not know the significance of a "blue" Ford? Ford does not call it "Performance Blue" for nothing..
    Red Ferrari?
    Green Lotus?
    Silver Mercedes?
