Ford was STUPID to quit making these
Brake Master Cylinder had to be replaced.
Serpentine belt squealed.
This is my second Festiva, and I really wish I hadn't given away the first one. I live in Hawaii, and with gas over $2 a gallon, this thing is a mileage champ! I get 38-40 mpg in combined city/highway driving. I know my Festy will always start and run.
The other one had AC, sure would be nice if this one did. Alas.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
