Well here I am again. Now my little white wonder has almost 268k and is still running. I bought a new Dodge Dakota in 04 and I like the truck, but with gas prices determined to stay $3 a gallon I drive my Festy to work most of the time. I recently retrofitted the a/c to 134a and it's nice & cold now. I basically use no oil between my 4k oil changes and just recently changed the timing belt, water pump & transmission fluid. So all in all this little car has far surpassed my expectations. You big suv drivers can laugh all you want, but I get 35mpg and didn't pay $40k for my commuter. My annual insurance costs are probably less than one of your car payments. So who's laughing now ha!ha!
Gas mileage& impeccable durability that makes even Toyota blush! I'll get back with you all at 300k!
Again for $6000 brand new and 35mpg/40 mpg with manual, who's complaining except OPEC. if all Americans owned Festys OPEC would be crying the blues!
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
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.
Gas milage and overall reliability.
Good visibility also.
Needs cupholder, more power, and
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 !!!!
milage, easy driving, EVERYTHING
when engine is pushed it is way to
noisy, should have a little more power,
but still a great car
