Originally posted by Eric Smith: drive it forever... when you get up the balls to say something, say it and shut up. I have no clue what some people have against these cars. Maybe jealously, I seriously don't know. I've never bashed anyones cars, no matter what it is. Quite frankly both are paid for, get 40+mpg, very reliable, very nimble, and once you learn to drive them they aren't the slowest on the road.I get offers on both on a daily basis. Will someone enlighten me on this?

I know of several Festivas that went over 200K on their Korean built, Mazda designed engines. I would love to find a low mileage, manual trans, Festiva (or Aspire) to commute with. PS: Eric -what happened to the original engine in the Aspire?
