Fun, little, really cheap, reliable
Radiator fan stops, but able to run the car half the summer.
Rear brakes don't work well.
Windshield washer pump died.
This is my second Festiva.
Not so comfortable, but a perfect little cheap student city-car. Not really stable on high-way, but so slim it can be parked anywhere in the city.
Cost me 800$, replacement pieces cost nothing, gas costs nothing, insurance costs nothing, and you won't find any car so simple and cheap to repair around!!!.
Manual trans-axle make it fun to drive up to 50km/h because the car is very light.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
