Walking Away Is A Good Thing
NOV
09

I’m a big guy, and the 2011 Ford Fiesta is a small, but awesome car. I was driving a lot of miles, 17355 on my Fiesta between July 2010 and January 2011. I loved that car almost as much as I love my family. I was sad to see it go after I slid into a ditch and smashed head first into a concrete drainage culvert at 45 miles per hour, BUT I got out of the car, and WALKED AWAY! I suffered a pretty bad bruise from the seatbelt, and a broken sternum from the seatbelt/airbag combo, but that’s it! I would surely have been worse for the wear if it weren’t for the superb safety features built into the Fiesta, including the drivers knee airbag. To this day, I mourn the loss of my 2011 Lime Squeeze Fiesta SES, but at least my family doesn’t have to mourn my loss. Thank you Ford!
