To make everyone's time here as fun and informative as possible, please respect your fellow members. The Fiesta Faction community is made up of a diverse group of people. As such, not everyone will see eye-to-eye on every subject. And while we encourage spirited debate where appropriate, we do not condone discourse that becomes antagonistic. If it's clear that you simply do not agree with someone, please just agree to disagree, and move on.
The Fiesta Faction.com discussion forums exist to discuss topics related to the Ford Fiesta or other auto-related topics. An Off Topic forum is provided for other items that may be of interest to forum members (i.e. movies, music, etc.). Please keep all non-automotive topics confined to that forum.
