Owned for 6 years so far, now it has
100000 miles. never any problem.
replaced the starter once (30 minute
job) Got 48.5 MPG on highway trip to
new york from virginia last year. Much
more responsive and fun to drive than
my Jimmy or minivan. I would be
concerned in a major accident, but it
should be easier to aviod one in this
car. Highly recommended for any safe
driver who wants a good car with great
The gas milage just amazing. I'm
getting about 300 miles on 8 gallons of
gas in city/highway driving. That is
almost 38MPG! Amazing car. My expenses
so far are: $150 new exhaust, $140 rear
brakes and 3x$20 oil changes. Oh and
not to mention street parking. That is
just simply the second best feature of
this car. It can fit in any spot!
If you like cheap and reliable, than the 1993 Ford Festiva is the car to get. The last Festiva I had was traded in for another in 1998 for $3200 at 32,000 mile. The trade-in had 198,000 miles on it and I found out that it got up to 240,000. I know someone with one at 400,000. I delivered my washing machine with it and later a Drier. The back seat folds real flat. Ford stopped offering this car in 1993 but the car is still made as the Kia Pride.
