We have a opportunity to pick up a 2016 Fiesta five speed for a song and dance. It has electric proportional steering. Does anyone flat towing this car have problems with wobble?

By the way, did a search but did not find a thread that actually addressed my question.

I've never heard a single case of it on the Fiesta. The Fiesta is a fantastic car. I definitely recommend one for a toad.

Thank you for your response. I have not either but I wanted to hear from someone else. The fiesta is small but it will only be our tow car.

Not a Fiesta, but I haven't had any wobble with my 2016 Edge. It's probably the same steering.

Yes it is ok to four down on the se model. It is also ok to do the automatic on this model. On the auto you have to disconnect the battery at the negative cable NOT downstream. On the five speed all you have to do is leave it in neutral. Of course they say do not exceed 70 mph which is fine as I always do 65 and under.
