Hey all, I currently drive a 2005 Acura TL and have had it since last March. It's been an okay car and I got it so I could keep the miles off of my S2000 that I autocross. We had a 2011 Fiesta SES in the family a year and a half ago but my fiance traded that in for her current truck; in hindsight I would have bought that from her for my daily driver but at the time I was trying to find a car that had a balance of power & comfort. I'm really hating driving a bloated TL and it gets terrible gas mileage (I average 21-23 mixed city and I haven't broken past 28-29 on the highway). The issue is that the dash cracked on me a month or two after buying the car (yay, typical problems) and I would have to shell out 1-2 grand for a dealer to pay it off. Anyway, I went from looking at newer Focus hatch, then a Mazda 3 hatch, back to keeping the TL for a while to see if I can live with it, and now looking at the Fiesta ST. I finally test drove one this past Saturday and was pretty impressed. The Recaro seats were definitely snug which may or may not hamper it as a daily driver getting in and out (I'm 5'6", 170 lbs, gonna get back down to 150). The only other issue I've been trying to work out is getting my mountain bike to the trails. My fiance's Fiesta fitted a hitch just fine but it looks like the bumper on the ST might be an issue with a hitch. I refuse to use roof-racks because (1) I can be a klutz at times and (2) I'm fairly short and it would be a stretch for me to hoist a 32lb bike on top of a car. Has anyone else moved from a larger sedan to a smaller Fiesta and regretted losing passenger or trunk space? We have two young kids so I think they'll be okay for a while with the back seat; we have an EcoBoost F150 if we need the space. ^_^ Sorry for the TL;DR, but just wanted to spill my thoughts out and get some opinions on whether the car is worth moving to even if I have to pay money to get out of my current car.
