I bought this car when it was 2 years
old and had 30K miles on it. This is my
second Mark. Had a VII before this. The
ergonomics of the car are fantastic.
And I thought the VII was fast. Doesn't
hold a candle to the VII. In my
estimation, as long as these cars are
maintained properly (mine has been
maintained by the dealer since new)
they will last a long time. Mine is
garage kept and just turned over 90K.
Burns NO oil. Only draw back of the car
is the interior size. Not really a
comfortable 4-seater. The road feel of
the car is great. I can hit a dime on
the road and tell whether it's heads or
The powertrain. I love the feeling of
the power the DOHC develops. Shift it
manually, and you'll get excited about
