New Fiesta

I collected my New Fiesta last month (1.6tdci Titanium) I have been pleased with it, bar for one thing a couple of days after taking delivery I noticed that the mirror that is normally on the drivers side was fitted on the n/s ie. this was has the convex piece on the end ( helps to prevent blind spots when overtaking) I assumed that as the car was built in Germany being LHD it was fitted on the n/s by mistake I queried this with my dealer who informed me that Ford was aware of this as a number of owners had reported and that didn't feel it was a problem and therefore would't change it

I contacted Ford Customer services they informed me that they hadn't had any reports of owners reporting this to them but it would log my complaint I would add that if you look at most modern cars they all have the split ( flat glass /convex on the outer part ) on the drivers side

Has anybody else had this with there New Fiesta?

Have something to contribute?

Mine's the same and I thought it odd as my previous car had it on the driver's mirror which is where it should be!!!

Not too bothered about though..........
