I'm planning to buy fiesta, i like the HB, but wife said guy should ride sedan..

HB looks more solid than sedan.

I'll test drive this saturday
I made this letter longer than usual because I lack the time to make it short

Seven airbags in the sedan has to be a good thing.

The HB has sports suspension which will give it a firm ride. It's great for zipping around the corners but not so great for taking your mum to Tesco. The sedan has 'standard suspension' so the ride will be softer for those who don't like to pretend their are in the WRC.

Just a little advice; if you want to buy the sedan, test drive the sedan. If they don't have one available at that showroom, go to another. If you aren't happy with the SA, go to another. Test drive the car as many times as you need to make your decision. You should probably test drive the car's rivals too to see what you like and don't like about the cars in your price range.

Cars are very expensive in Malaysia. It's a big decision so take your time and don't let the SAs push you into something you aren't sure about.

mebbe ....

1. lotsa lazy drivers + lazy drivers who wanna yak/sms/mms while driving - i'd suspend their licences for 3-5 years
2. no margin ... so, might as well concentrate on versions that'll bring in more profit

I tested this car last year; really loved the handling and I'll do it again because I'm really interested in the newly repackaged 1.4 manual Fiesta. Hope I can find one, give it a spin and report to you people here smile_big.gif

Btw, one thing missing from the manual version, much to my chagrin, is the USB port. Why, Ford, why?! Yes, and also Traction control and stability control, so it's like a Proton dry.gif

just buy the auto version...1.6 dualclutch...had mine for close to 2 years now....still fun to drive...love it to bits...the suspension is not that hard as some have mentioned in this thread....its just right...and its more quiet inside compared to jap rivals...sound system is better than jap rivals...usb port is a plus! no problems at all so far!
