2000 Ford Festiva Trio 1.3 from Australia and New Zealand
Great cheap run around!
Only problem is a too small windscreen wiper blade installed, but that's easy fixed.
This is my first car and boy is she a gem to drive!
No power steering, does have driver assist steering, but you hardly notice the heavy steering unless your parking.
Everything in the car is stock-standard but mine came with a JVC CD player which is a fantastic extra to have in this little car.
First time driving the car, it was raining cats and dogs, the car handled perfectly, not a glitch in this area.
Around 110 km/hr the car starts to get the shakes and tremors however its not annoying nor can it be classed as a 'fault', it's a small car for goodness sake!
I would recommend this car to ANYBODY getting a first car or even a cheap run around, very good on juice.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
