I Like The Car For My Own Reasons — I like the Festiva for it economy but this one needs a lot of work. Plus, the fuel pump was a pain in the rear to replace. The tires are 12 inch and hard to find. This vehicle needs a paint job, brakes and other repairs. But, when it ran it was fun to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun to drive.

Cons: Old, hard to find parts...  to small

For Someone Who Want To Drive A Lot Oc Cheap Miles — tiny, good on fuel, good runabout reliable motors are hard to find motor lasts into very high kilometers if you dont care about looks and want a reliable car. very easy to work on, maintance is cheep the one that came with 13" mags would be better you could find winter tires manufacture stopped making 12" winter tires which is great if you have a winter vehicle

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fuel economy, most people get over 300,000km on odometer

Cons: hard to find parts, do not make winter tires anymore

The Festiva Spanish For "festival Of Fury" — this 1.3 liter power house of horsepower gets me 40 mpg. running the piss out of it in the city. custom paint colors of red, gray, black, yellow, blue, and a little white really set off cars real dangerous side.

Pros: 40 mpg

Cons: turn siganl doesn't work, crack in windshield, leaks oil, water leaks into car, won't start after it rains, lower control arms are bad, needs a new axle, and of course i get tired of all the girls asking if they can ride with me in it.

I Hope It Lasts Me Forever! —

Nothing more to say than what I just wrote above. When I first got it I thought I would be very crunched up (Im 6'2") Found out I have plenty of room and I can get up to 5 adults in it (long as they ain't TOO big lol) 5-9-2013 Well, Darn It! Little car currently in BROKEDOWN status. Coming home, running fine, stopped for about an hour and a half, then started it up, it sputtered and wanted to die, had to keep feathering the gas peddle and taking it out of gear to keep it going, would not build up speed to go into 2nd gear, then died. Restarted and did the same thing. Tried it 4 or 5 times then called a friend to come and get it and me. As I cant currently aford to take it to a shop, I've consigned myself to waiting for a mechanic FRIEND to check it out for me, and he has designated THIS SATURDAY AFTERNOON as the TIME! (Another friend has ALMOST got it started, but it has stumped him too.) It has displayed the symptoms of BAD GAS, but it was on 1/4 and the first 3/4 did fine - - - and yes, we have put on a new fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs, wires, distributer cap and rotor, and even a MASS AIRFLOW SENSOR ($95.00) I will ALWAYS feel blessed for the 3 or more years I've had this car, and am praying to be blessed once again with its use and high gas mileage!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: this is a fantastic little car, CANNOT believe the gas mileage!  45-50mpg!

Cons: ist BAD thing I found was that the 12 inch tires were hard to find, and seemed to wear out faster than any vehicle Ive ever had (switched the back to 13's)  And I cant carry a lot of the things I used to carry in my old Ranger, lumber, sheetrock, firewood, etc. lol
