1991 Ford Festiva GL 1.3 from North America
A great car
I have a 91 with a 4-speed, and regarding the mpg... When I drive 55mph (I know, who can actually do this for long periods of time any more?) I have got up to 48mpg. I've driven my Festiva across country many times, and I can consistently get these numbers. I believe with a 5-speed it could do even better.
I did own a Metro XFI with a 3-cylinder, and it did get 58mpg on the freeway. The Festiva doesn't do quite as well due to the 4 cylinder engine, but if you keep your foot out of it, and drive strictly for mpg... they will do high-40's.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
