Must say that after 164,000 miles and a whole lot of rust in 16 years of existence,this car is still driving strong. It's fun to drive and it hasn't given the last owner or me any problems. Love this little car!

Bought our 93 GT 5 speed with 36,000 miles in 1996, and had to let it go in 2008 due to rust. Was a great car, peppy 1.8 engine gave us no problems except for slight lifter noise and general maintenance. Dist. O-Ring, thermostat and sending unit ,radiator, hoses, small things. Tranny went through 2 clutches, and a 3-4 shift fork and synchronizer. Fun to drive; seems to want to go through front ball joints and outer tie rods though. Ours was blue with gray interior, started rusting around the rear wheel lips, and went like wildfire since. The back half of the car is so rusted in the lower rear panels, and the frame rails are severely rusted. Rear strut came thru, and found more rust on the towers.

Used to drive my mom's 96 LX around
with the weak 88 hp engine, my GT makes
40 more hp and the difference is
unbelievable! I drive this car around
100 miles per day for both work and
school and at 100,000 miles, it still
refuses to leak a drop of anything.
The only repairs have been the
replacement of maintainance parts such
as brake linings, and rotors. The
mazda engine, 5 speed, and sport tuned
suspension makes this car a blast to
