According to a Reddit thread, it appears that a 2016 Ford Fiesta ST owner has been experiencing some air conditioning troubles with his vehicle.
Radicalhabz, the Redditor, clarified that he had purchased his new 2016 Fiesta ST back in February when the weather was pretty cold.
That eliminated his need for the air conditioning up till today as the weather temperature has increased. Unfortunately for him, when he tried to turn on his air conditioning, it refused to work as expected.
The frustrated Ford owner had turned on the air conditioning to full blast for about 20 minutes yet it continued to release only hot air.
Other owners chimed in with their own experiences which shows that this is an ongoing issue across the model. However, some owners said that their issue was fixed by turning it off and on again but this wasn’t effective for all.
Well, if you are an owner of the 2016 Ford Fiesta ST who is facing this similar issue, it’s best that you take the car back to the dealer as they will aid in updating the software to rectify the issue.
The 2016 Ford Fiesta ST comes equipped with a 1.6L four-cylinder mill capable of churning out 197hp and 202 lb-ft torque, mated to a six-speed manual transmission. This model can hit a 0-60mph in 7.0 seconds with a top speed of 143 mph.
