I agree 100% they are hard to find. Especially in smaller towns. I posted in another thread how a number of dealers in my area don't even have an order in the plans as of now. And one sold the only one they are getting for a while to an employee. I can't fathom them selling by customer order "only" as someone mentioned. They would sell so few that way compared to having them on the lot. Curious OP, what dealer in Ohio has the blue with no options? That's EXACTLY what I'm looking for! Did you get a price? By the way, anyone looking for a no option black model, here is one at a nice price: http://www.darcarslanhamford.com/new/Ford/2014-Ford-Fiesta-16131b5e0a0a00497601992038d98f79.htm I don't know if it's BS or not. I called and they said the $18,700 online price was correct. I don't think anyone on here has purchased one that low. All of their prices for Fiestas seem low so I'm thinking something is up. I surely can't order one under $20k from nearby dealers. Let alone $18,700. Nor could I get any dealers to match their base "S" model $12,544 price. Anyway, hoping more ST's hit the lots as time goes by. Not looking good so far. Good luck OP and to everyone else.
