POWERshift might be appropriate in a Mustang GT, but in a Fiesta? Sheesh . . . . . .

The largest engine is 1.6 liters. How much power can you have in a Power Shift?

Speaking of plaigarism. I glimpsed some kind of new car the other day called "Amanti."

It's all about advertising. The more impact a name has, the better it sells. My impression is that the Fiesta will be a good one for Ford.

The early Ford Taurus I always though was ugly, then came along the Ford 500 sedan. What I under stand is the 500 didn't sell as will as Ford liked so they changed its name to Taurus and the sales raised. It's was the same darn car all they did was change the name.

And the Fiesta haveing anything on it that refer's to power on it is laughable.

The Amanti was a Kia.
