Cory and I went to City Mazda today to test drive the 2011 Ford Fiesta SEL that we looked at last week and we got great news. As soon as we pay the $750 down payment (they would not accept $500 but we can swing the $750) the car is ours, we have been approved! I am so excited. Here it is:
I asked to test drive it before I made a decision as we did not test drive it when we were there last week. I like it even more since test driving it. I have to say for a subcompact car and a car that is smaller in size then my current Cobalt it is really still quite roomy (the 4 door sedan version anyways). It was really great to drive.
The car has all the bells and whistles that you can imagine. It has heated front seats, its an automatic (can’t drive a standard, though I want to learn some day), rear seat heat/air ducts, halogen head lamps, 16in chrome wheels, driver knee air bags, front/rear side curtain air bags, ambient lighting package w/ 7 colors (the front foot well, cup holders and under the front seats/in the rear foot well lights up with one of the 7 colors), Ford Sync entertainment in-car connectivity platform, Leather-wrapped steering wheel w/metallic spokes, 60/40 split rear seats w/adjustable head restraints, air conditioning, power doors and windows, Solar tinted glass, AdvanceTrac electronic stability control (ESC) and much more!
I put $100 of the $750 down and I have a birthday coming up July 6th, so I am hoping maybe to see if my parents can give me money a little early towards the down payment. With the 2 pays for me and 3 for Cory (he’s weekly) we will be able to come up with the rest of it in a few weeks and then we can pick it up. Llyod, the sales guy said he would get it in in the next few days to be detailed and fill up the tank for us! I am so so so excited! Can’t you tell?
