Hey all! Just purchased a 2015 Fiesta SE with 50,000 miles on, I think I got a steal. Any advice, things to watch out for, problems that are common? Seems like a super clean car, the engine is kind of loud while running and not the smoothest shift but its not a Cadillac so can't expext too much.

The Powershift transmission has quite a history of software and component spec revisions. You don't mention if you purchased a manual transmission or the DPS6. Version. The manual transmission Fiesta is a good car with few glaring issues that with proper maintenance can't be avoided.
I don't think that I am alone in wondering why you purchased a car before you decided to do some research on the car?
The various forums and media, along with the relatively easy to navigate news search engines have given all of us direct access to literally thousands of pages of information and opinions to peruse before even one nickle is spent toward buying the car in question.
If you enter into these kinds of transactions with the mindset that you really cannot expect too much in terms of satisfaction in how the car functions in normal use, you will probably be rewarded with a car that you will quickly grow to hate like your ex wife's mother.

Scotman, thank you for the reply! It is the Automatic.

While I would say you are correct in terms of gathering knowlege with much ease and even apprectiate the rebuke of an ill-informed decision. The transaction that occurred which ended with me acquiring the fiesta was out of the ordinary and did not lend itself time for reseach. That being said I do own the car now (actually got for mother) and apprectiate any advice that can be given; even as ridiculous of a purchase it maybe.

I'm not knocking the idea of a good deal. If the price is right, I can forgive a car that was involved in a drive by murder.
