My car was purchased by my parents new. I have driven it since 2000. I was an abusive teenager to the car when i got it with over 170,000 miles. It now has 256,xxx miles and runs great. Very little has been replaced. In the 5 years I have had it I have only had to change the original alternator and radiator. The transmission was replaced at approximately 200,000 miles. Aside from this the car is 100% original. Still runs great, with plenty of power and great MPG. The interior shows very little wear and looks great! I love the car! The fold down seats make the car very versatile. I have a '98 Escort ZX2 and prefer to drive the '90 Mazda.
Fold down rear seats, oscillating vents! Lots of storage, supportive seats. Quality materials throughout the cabin, Great MPG! Smooth power delivery.
Could handle a little better, headlights need longer beam.
