It's a Toyota at least...

They seem like a good car, a buddy of mine has one and loves it. Same color, same year I think too.

I got one back because I've driven festivas for a DD. Actually I love small cars. I was torn between a Mazdaspeed 3 and a Scion FRS until I seen this in the used side of the Toyota dealer. I was in love.

I have a couple friends who had a Yaris. They were driving on the highway doing 70-75 when they came over a rise to find a vehicle stopped in the middle of the high speed lane. No time to stop of swerve they nailed the stopped car. The Yaris was totalled, but they got away with a couple minor scratches. So, yes I would drive a Yaris. They went and got another one after that.

I can't get over how the instrument panel is in the middle of the dahsboard. To me, that screams cheap and lazy

I assume so it is so there is less work involved in adapting it to different countries that drive on the other side of the road

anomoly, what sort of mazda bits are you using to add 80hp to a festiva?

I had a festiva a loooong time ago - it was a great little car. it was an '88 so it still had just a 4spd stick. I went from it to a '66 Fury complete with a big block. talk about a night and day difference in vehicles

fwiw, some of the yota 1.8l parts swap down to the 1.5. The throttle bodies swap and are bigger bored

heh, speaking of mazda engined blue ovals . . . my '03 Focus is one of the early PZEV ones - so it has the 2.3l mazda based duratec. basically the same engine as in mazda3's, but without the variable cam timing. Mine has ~125k on it and is ticking along just fine - a buddy of mine just turned 300k in his pzev focus

VW diesel. Old 1.6L turbo with a 5 speed, much better. Why not a matrix?
