I found a good deal on a 2016 ST. Anyone own a model from this year? Have you had any issues? I read that 2015 and earlier models had clutch problems, sometimes after only 15k miles. Thanks for any feedback!

I was going to buy a 2018, but it turns out the ones that will be offered in the states are no different from 2017s, and the engine will still be 4 cylinder, unlike European model; in addition, there won't be a panoramic sunroof option.

Hey Myke,

I myself just picked up a 2016 FiST, I did some extensive research and like you found the coolant and clutch problem with the 15's. I didn't find anything alarming with the 16's however. I say test drive the vehicle, give it a good looking over, let the salesman know about your concerns, and don't be rushed and let the excitement influence your purchase. It may cause you to overlook things. I've had great cars come from Private Sellers and Crappy Lemons come from Certified Dealers. So just take your time and if it's a deal. DO IT!

Nice. I got a 17 with colors I wanted (Orioles fan) Orange Recaros and black exterior. Dealer said you can still factory order a FiST with any colors/options you want, but maybe only for a month or so. The 18s in the US might just be the leftover 17s, and the car might not be sold here in 2019.

I hope they still sell them in 2019. I'm looking at getting one this fall. If not focus st could work
