1990 Ford Festiva Hatchback L 2dr Hatchback


Review

Both are excellent little car very dependable, one engine has about 375,000 the other 185,000 both still running strong. They both get about 40 miles per gallon, plenty of power. Getting a little hard to find 12" tires, and because of the smaller diameter the rough roads tend to break the belts on them but most likely this is because there from China now. If your lucky enough to buy one keep it! One of them does have a raw smell inside the vehicle which I can't find


Favorite Features

Gas mileage, dependability !!!!cheap tires


Suggested Improvements

Can not find any new parts for the interior and exterior of the car, no problem with engine parts from what I've seem. Wish someone would make a replacement fuel tank sending unit

Review

I bought my festiva from an old korean lady for 1000 dollors it had everything AC,AM/FM,auto,new paint and low miles about 40K on it now it has 100K and a now sun roof on it. It is the most reliable car we have, only problems were the vacuum modual and the brakes would wear quickly.But very cheap to maintain.


Favorite Features

I love the way it handles very nimbly though can be quite tippy at fast speeds, very roomy and pretty comfortable seats.Fun to Drive


Suggested Improvements

Engine too noisy when pushed,needs more HP. Steering is hard without Power assist. More sound deadening.

Review

I have had my 90 for festiva for a couple of years now and not once had a problem with it. It is comfortable to drive and comfortable to be a passenger in. Though it may not be the biggest looking car it has the most roomy interior. It also gets great fuel economy It gets an average of 50 mpg. Most 17 year olds want sporty cars i wouldn't trade my festiva for anything in the world. It is the best car ever made.
