1993 Ford Festiva L 4 Cylinder from North America
A great long distance commuting car
I can't really say that there has been anything "wrong" with the vehicle, other than the normal wear & tear.
Seats wear @ 100,000 miles.
Wire fuses were gauged too small from Manufacturer.
Easy to break into without smashing windshield.
Horn will sound sometimes and sometimes not. Usually lasts for a month at a time.
Car is very peppy and gets great gas mileage.
Parts are dealer only. Due to the ease of totaling the car in an accident, the junk-yards are full of parts (i.e. alternators, starters and interior parts).
I can get a whole set of tires with lifetime mounting, balancing and rotation for @ $140.00.
The air conditioning compressor was sized too small from the factory, even when fully filled with Freon, it still would not perform. This was true when I purchased it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
