I think there are better cars to be had for $21,000.

I tend to agree with you on this. I do want a Fiesta, it looks great, but for 21k, you can get a Honda Fit with Navigation, and not have to deal with the resale value plummeting of the Fiesta.. I'm not a pro-honda sort of a guy (just the nearest thing in the same class of cars), but 21k is tough to stomach when you look at how hard hit Fords are with depreciation. Personally i would have trouble walking past a low miles MS3 or GTi to get into a Fiesta. Now wait a year or two when Fiesta's start showing up in the "certified used" lots and i'll be a buyer!
