At the end of the day these transmissions are programed to best the EPA cycle with little regard to how it drives in the real world. They error on the side of economy and not good driveability. I am not picking at you but lets get realistic instead of dropping more money to fix what should have already been fixed.Hi mk7,
Welcome to the forum!
My name is Noemi and I'm the residential Ford help.
I understand the desire to see your Fiesta kick in with some performance. However, at the end of the day, it is built with a 1.6L engine geared towards fuel economy and not muscle car performance.
Of course, Ford recognized there are Fiesta lovers who are looking for a certain, ahem, kick. So keep a look out for the Fiesta ST. I know it will have more of that invigorating response you desire.
it's not sluggish at all IMO/EUnfortunately, this is an area that the Fiesta needs improvement, in my opinion. Anyone know of some mods to improve this?? I have a 2011 SEL w/ Powershift. I should have gotten a manual, but I let my fiancé talk me out of it. Oh well.
Anyone have a list of ways to improve my throttle response??
I'm tired of flooring the pedal and waiting a full second to get any sort of invigorating response, haha.
As always, any and all help is very much appreciated.
agree 100% with going with partial throttle on take off. Gently roll into the throttle instead of just mashing it to the floor.mk 7, you have a 10 sec. car. 0-60 that is.
I find often that partil throttle on lift off works better than full throttle.
Once you ar moving, then mat it.
As Cobra said, they are a little different and take some learning or getting used to.
Telero doesn't have problems keeping my attention. (;So Telero, how's that dungeon coming along for you? You keeping your nose to the grindstone in an effort to keep Audrey's attention away from the evils of Diesel?
