#216 of 219 Ford Fiesta or Focus rear visibility
Jul 23, 2012 (2:37 pm)
I'm beginning to consider buying a hatchback and am attracted by the relative quiet of Ford. I also want a stick shift car. At the moment, I'm traveling and driving a rented 2012 Fiesta SE, which is fairly quiet. I do not like the "view through a tunnel" to the rear. With a small window and wide pillars, the rear visibility is poor.
We also need a gentile clutch spring for my wife who has knee damage.
I'm surprised not to find any complaints about this issue. Is the Focus any better? Any other suggestions?

If you have knee trouble, I highly recommend not getting a manual. I love manual transmission, but my knee problems are not good with the clutch on a 2010 Camry, which is light.

Hi all... new here.
Although I've had my Mazda Protege 5 for a few years now, I just found this place.
Love this car!
