1993 Ford Festiva GL 2dr Hatchback


This has been my most reliable car EVER- bought in'96 for $3,900-was a impulse buy (bought within hours of looking at) Initially thought I overpaid - but 13 yrs and at 185,000 miles - U think I got a steal on it I dont get mileage others might(is a 5 speed) get 35-38 mpg (with wind pushing me have got 45-48) tho mpg is with usually with car loaded up and 75 mph Gone is rear seat - and many times passenger seat - fit 8 ft boards in it with front seat gone- so cargo room is awesome (use it like was a truck) great ground clearance for N Dakota winters Until real recently could go 5,000- 6,000 miles(oil change to oil change) without adding any oil in between alot of long trips 800mile

Best Features

1. RELIABILITY! starts every time has never broke down on me ever - biggest repair was cv shafts (frigid winter split boots) 2.SPACIOUS - is like clown car - fits more inside than seems possible - will never own a sedan 3. comfort - very decent for tiny car (am 6 ft)have gone 367 miles str8t thru

Worst Features

Have had to repair rear latch quite a bit - the 12 inch tires dont last (squeeze 2 yrs out of them - tho live on country roads) Really Wish had 'luxuries' like AC and espec Cruise Control The sun visors shoulda been alot bigger-the brakes tend to fade quickly Exhaust work -Done myself (welder)
