I averaged about 43 MPG with my Festiva. It was a great little commute car, and I could park or fit just about anywhere. I just hit 218,000 miles when it was hit by individual unable to stay in their own lane. It will most likely get totaled due to the extent of that damage. I wish I could just go out to the Ford or Kia dealership and get another one.
Gas mileage, lots of interior space - I moved an entire dorm room with one back in college.
Start making them again - Kia or Ford should bring this little bugger back with modern safety features.
