I purchased my little 323 6 and 1/2 years ago. It had about 160,000
kilometers on (over 100k miles if you prefer). I had expected to get a year out
of it. Nothing except regular maintanance. This little bomb still looks like it
just came out of show room - after all these Canadian winters. In addition it
still gets about 45 mpg (imperial gallon)....... an absolute gem.... It is the
first Japanese car that I have ever owned and it will not the last. The concern
I have about new Mazdas is the amount of Ford content..... my mechanic
says they over built these 323's and I tend to believe him...
