This has been a great car. Has more then paid for itself over the years. I got this car just as a joke but now the joke is on me.


Best Features

Turning ratio.


Worst Features

Take the back set ash tray out; makes a great cup holder.

1990 Ford Festiva Hatchback LX 2dr Hatchback


Review

This thing won't die. It's ugly as hell, but it runs great still with basically no maintainence. In the past 6 years I've only put a clutch in it aside from tires and such. The rear wiper went out a couple years after I got it, but I don't miss it much. The paint is also starting to oxidize. I'm finally giving up on killing it and just getting a new car. Need a little more get up and go, although it is pretty zippy for 63hp.


Best Features

Gas milage and overall reliability. Good visibility also.


Worst Features

Needs cupholder, more power, and stiffer suspension.

Review

now the festiva was made by kia, and i dont know if the new kias are as good as this car but it rocks. This is my second festiva, I was in the michigan Rally league and raced a festiva, that car took more than any car ever should, and still runs !!! Now i have my second one, and it is just great, even if something goes wrong its so easy to work on, I LOVE FESTIVAS !!!!


Best Features

milage, easy driving, EVERYTHING


Worst Features

when engine is pushed it is way to noisy, should have a little more power, but still a great car
