It’s a fiesta with the Ford Fiesta Club Malaysia

Published on March 30th, 2011

Like most car manufacturers here in Malaysia, they are deprived on bringing in their full car line-up due to some governmental restrictions and issues. We were made to believe that the cars imported were scrutinized to their compatibility in various criteria to cater to the existing car markets. One of it is the compact car segment. Ford were brave enough to bring it on with the rest by introducing their supermini; the Ford Fiesta. Although the car has been selling well in the European market, it is yet to be proven the best selling car here in Malaysia but sales has been surprisingly soaring among the rest of its segment.

The first Fiesta on the road were said to be spotted on the road around December last year, months after its launch. Luckily the Malaysian crowd liked the way it looks and behave on the road and by word of mouth and also on those famous social media networks, the little car were slowly creating a fiesta. Up until now, with number of fans and potential owners growing, a forum based club has been created by the name of Fiesta Club Malaysia.

Jason Lim, who created the forum before he actually sat and drive in the car saw the need to have a club to help other fellow owners on matters regarding the new car. Just like any other car makes that have its own forum, frequently-asked questions, topics, tips and tricks as well as opinions from various areas were all sourced from its growing members, be it owners themselves or the future owners. Since then, the need to have its first grand ‘teh tarik session’ came to place when Jason and a few other fellow Ford Fiesta hardcores round up the owners and fans (yes, these cars have a fan-based page in the Facebook too!) at Sakura Kristal Cafe in Taman Melawati. Closed to 60 cars were gathered at the car park making the venue a true fiesta with, what else, the Ford Fiestas.

The event started with a long stretch of convoy from the meeting place at Awan Besar rest and relax stop before they proceed to the venue. Loads of stares came from the other motorist when these little Fords graced the tarmac along the MRR2 towards Taman Melawati. More action came when the Fiestas reached and started to park at Sakura Kristal. Seeing them parking is a fiesta alone with flashes of shots came from every direction from the photographers before treating themselves to goodie bags, good food, free flow of drinks and a whole lot of lucky draws from the sponsors.

As the night went on, everyone was a winner bringing back prizes from the lucky draws as there were more prizes than the owners themselves that night. Fun, laughter and knowing each other was all part of the fiesta where all the members gets face time away from the forum that night.

As for the rest of you who would like to know more about the Ford Fiesta or simply would just like to hang around the happy bunch of Ford Fiesta fanatics, head down to www.fiestaclubmalaysia.com now. Oh and did you count how many of the word Fiesta is in this article?
