1991 Ford Festiva GL 1.3 from North America
Best bargain I ever had
Replaced brake pads at 62,000 miles.
Replaced muffler at 69,00 miles.
Had thermostat replaced at 74,000 miles.
If they still made these cars, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. For a car this small, it was surprisingly comfortable. While not a hot rod, it had pretty good zip for such a tiny engine. I bought the car from a friend who had rescued it from a junkyard following a wreck. The car was tough, I drove it nine years with almost no problems. It got terrific gas mileage and could handle almost any amount of snow. I'd still have it today, but an encounter one morning with a deer was its sad end. It took being totaled a second time to finally do it in.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
