Fiesta Test Drive: Power-Shifting and Cornering
Agent Mandy's brother was a bit skeptical about the magic of the Fiesta. He just couldn't take his little sister's word for it. So we gave him the fob and let him tear it up. His reaction is pretty priceless.
You'll also enjoy tasty nuggets from Mandy like, "Was it anything what you thought?" Yup. You can see why her brother thought none too highly of her opinion. But now? He just might be changing his tune.
Thanks, Ford Fiesta!
