On a scale from 1-10, it's a 7 in every category
Valve cover gasket leak developed at around 160,000.
The brakes glazed easily, and in my opinion they were designed too small for the car.
The most reliable car I have ever owned, and it's the most fun per dollar as well.
I've owned over 200 cars in my lifetime, and the festiva isn't the best at anything, but it's good to great at almost everything.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
