I'd love to own a Brat, but I'm looking to buy a car that is a little newer. I'm leaning towards an older Focus now. Good on gas! Small, but has all the creature comforts I don't get in the Festiva! :)


Every so often I think about having a "newer" car than the Festiva, but every time I fill it up, I change my mind. Last tank was 41.5 MPG. Not to mention, I have a few friends with cars that are in the 8-10 year old range and they have all kinds of issues with their cars. The Festiva has been trouble free for the most part, even with it being 22 years old and 257,000 miles.

The mileage is nice, but I have a girlfriend that live 230 miles away and driving that two times a month is kind of a pain in the Festiva. No AC, loud (wind noise), no cruise control, seats aren't super comfy.

I'm actually looking into purchasing a Ford Focus SVT. I used to own a ZX3 and it was a great car. The SVT is a 6 speed and has advanced suspension. Gonna test drive on Thursday.

I'm a member of NASIOC and another Subaru group (got there during the Mark's Subaru hullabaloo when they sold a car on Ebay and tried a bait and switch) Seems like they don't work on their own stuff much and if you aren't primping or building for the (illegal) racetrack, they ignore you.

I have two Subaru SVXs. One I am trying to sell. So I can repair the other. Which has a 5 speed swap, but needs a lot of little things to finish it. I will take some pics later. They are fun and get looks, but also drain the wallet.

It's hard to find a good friendly forum to go to, I only cruise this one for the most part at the moment, but when I had more time, I was an active member on a few nice ones (similar to here, go figure, lol).

So, needless to say, you weren't Impreza'd with them?
