"My friend owned an 89 for 6 years. He never changed any of the fluids. EVER! He put oil in it when it would start to knock. The only actual maintence he did is change the brakes and tires when they showed wires. It quit running one day. I took a look at it, pulled the air filter out and it ran again. He didn't feel like buying an air filter so he gave me the car. I drove it 2 hours to the city. While I was down there I replaced the spark plugs and found 2 loose. I mean flopping around loose. Its never ran better. since then ive hit 3 deers, fell in a ditch, and got rear ended. And all it needed for repairs is a roll of that yellow lens repair tape for the front blinkers. Its still running and I still show it no mercy. I seriously can't kill it. and I keep trying!"
"i have abused my festiva for the last 2 years it servived a horse, six deer, and me using it as a tow truck. I use the car 2 load vehicals on to my trailer that dont run and i haul scrap metal w it. the best thing about my car is it never lets me down or leaves me stranded, if it has gas it will run"
