Of course the official order guides have been at the Ford Dealerships since late Feb. I ordered mine Mar.5 but like they always say and warn you, manufacturer reserves the right to make changes, add, delete, etc at anytime. It could be that they want to differentiate the SE cloth interior with the light stone-grey interior with the SEL cloth interior being charcoal-black? But, time will tell. Production is supposed to start Apr. 26.

Chains are REQUIRED on some highways in California in the winter, during bad storms. I don't know where you folks live that chains are illegal, but speak for yourselves.

Speak for myself? I thought I was. What part of what I wrote says that chains are illegal in California?
"...... Chains aren't even legal in most states and that includes mine. "
That statement is as true now as when I wrote it. The problem lies in your reading comprehension skills.

At the dealer I ordered from, the order guide I looked at listed and showed pictures of the three different fabric samples. I'm sure it's just a glitch.

I think the problem was you said "most states" when that may not be true.

Yep, you're right. I Just did some checking and it looks like I am wrong on chain laws. Entirely wrong! Most states do allow them in certain snow and ice conditions. Even my state. I new studded tires were illegal here and thought chains were also illegal.
My bad. I apologize.

OK, got an answer from up the food chain and while it may not let you do EXACTLY what you want to do, it certainly served the purpose of letting the folks who need to know that there's something the comparison probably could do...
We apologize for the trouble you are having comparing a 2011 Ford Fiesta with an automatic transmission to other models. Unfortunately our comparator tool only allows you to compare vehicles at the style level, and the automatic transmission on the Fiesta is an option.
While you will not be able to specify an automatic transmission for the Fiesta in the comparator tool, you can still price out the vehicle with this option:
1) Select a style
2) Click the red Price With Options Button
3) In the list of available options, check the box for the 6-Speed Automatic Transmission
3) Click the red TMV pricing report button
Like I said, maybe not the answer you would have ideally liked, but it moves the ball forward!

Very much appreciate you taking the time to look into this. At least I understand why it doesn't work now. Of course, Edmunds could enter the Fiesta with an automatic as a style level. As it is, someone looking to compare a Fiesta to any other comparable car in it's class might get the impression that Fiestas only come with manuals. Kind of unfairly puts the Fiesta at a disadvantage.
But hey, what do I know? I've been known to be wrong before.

I'm pretty sure that it wasn't done to put any car at a disadvantage in a comparison but thanks for pointing it out. Having all those extra eyes checking out every little corner of the site is how we find out about things that might not have turned out as expected!
#349 of 636 Interior choices for 2011 Ford Fiesta back again!
Apr 16, 2010 (7:14 am)
The previous elimination of interior choices on the Ford Fiesta Build and Order site have been corrected. Both the cloth "light stone & charcoal" and well as the "black stone & charcoal" on the SE edition as well as the Leather option on the SES are now once again available. Must have been a site glitch.
