1991 Ford Festiva L 2dr Hatchback


Review

I have owned this little oddly shaped car since it had 6 miles and it has been extremely reliable. The only issue I ever had was the ball bearings going out every few thousand miles. It has always work in cold or warm weather and fuel economy was fantastic when I bought it 15 years ago.


Best Features

Overall reliability and gas mileage has been phenomenal.


Worst Features

Ball bearings go out every 10,000 miles or so.

1991 Ford Festiva L 2dr Hatchback


Review

I bought this car when it had 25,000 miles on it. 11 years later, it has 227,000 miles on it and is still going strong. It has only let me down once in 11 years and the cause was just a cracked distributor cap! It has been the best car I've owned. Can it make it to 300,000 miles? To be continued ...


Best Features

Gas mileage and dependability.

1991 Ford Festiva L 2dr Hatchback


Review

I've found this car trustworthy and free from unexpected maintenance. Not recomended for heavy highway driving as wind has effect on car. After 125,000 miles motor is very sound and doesn't burn oil. The interior is roomy and can hold 4 adults with leg room and headroom, or three bales of hay and two adults. I've enjoyed the smallness of the car as parking and turning around is very simple and quick, especially in downtown areas.


Best Features

Soundness of engine. Boxy style that holds bulky items. Fuel mileage. Easy in and out with large doors. Ease of parking in crowded or busy street.


Worst Features

I would suggest that the brakes be larger to better handle a full load. I would also consider bigger tires to increase tire availability and selection.

Review

These cars are great! I've had 5, if
you count Fiestas, all purchased for
less than $1000. I drive them a year
or two, they get a major problem, and
I throw them away. Cylinders have
blown on two, and the front end went
out on a couple. Fixing them would
cost more than buying another, so I
bought another


Best Features

I take out the rear seat and can sleep my 6' in it full length.


Worst Features

Kia should keep making this one.
