#355 of 636 Press embargo ends Monday!

Get ready for a bunch of Fiesta reviews on Monday. Automotive journalists have been testing the NA car for the last few weeks and can publish their data on the 26th. I'm guessing Edmunds will have their impressions ready to publish also. I really hope MPG numbers are as good as Ford has been saying. If you surf the web you can find some photos already released of the actual NA Fiesta.

Already Ford is baiting and switching the car's options....LOL.
What a great car company huh? They can't even hold to their word about what sort of car they are going to release.
The 17 inch rims options is no longer available.
I wonder what else they are lying about.....

Settle down. Ford dumped the 17" rims a couple of months ago because no one ordered them. They were a $2000 ($500 a rim + the tire upgrade) option. No one was going to pay that anyway. I don't know why you would call that bait and switch.

What a hoot! If early pre-orders showed NO INTEREST in the $2000 upgrade to the optional 17`` Rims and Tires, can you fault the manufacturer from dropping the option? Perhaps they should still offer it for the few dozen people that decide that (they) want to pay for the wheel/tire upgrade? Why not offer an optional (pink or violet) paint option for a few hundred dollars extra and perhaps they might build 2 dozen of those as well! They also dropped the European Auto-Climate Control for heat/ac for a regular simple manual system, lets bitch about that too while we are at it! Funny, the biggest "Bashers" are usually the same folks that have NEVER purchased a NEW vehicle in their entire lifetime, but love going around throwing shots and kicking tires on new cars while they drive around their 10 year old demolition derby clunkers!

Actually quite a few ordered them...and besides...it should still be an option.
Ford's official position was that they could not find tires that met the ride quality for the car....what nonsense.
They offer 17 in factory rims for a stupid Focus but not this new model?
Give me a break....let's not make excuses.

Yes indeed...how dare they...especially when they are using the images of the sportier rims on their website and yet don't offer them.

In other words, you're upset because you wanted them and now you can't get them. Why don't you just say that instead of making baseless accusations. I'm sure you and the other 3 people that wanted them won't hurt the sales numbers.

No....I'm saying that if I option out a car that is supposed to come here and they begin to change things around, I'm not going to buy it.
If others want to deal with a car company that cannot sell what they claim they'll sell, I'm not going to be the big idiot supporting them.
Not only are they modifying the options available, they're now changing and limiting interior/exterior combinations at the last minute.
Why would they do this if they want to make a good impression? When all other car manufacturers offer what they advertise, what would possess me to buy this now other than being an outright fan-boy who doesn't mind getting screwed over?
What's your excuse?
