In Nov. I purchased this car with alot
of reservations about it. It turns out
to be one of the best cars I have ever
owned. I have had to put a little work
into it but nothing that major. The
worst thing was I had to replace the
head gasket because the previous owner
neglected to put in a thermostat. So I
replaced them both for pretty cheap of
course I do all my own work. The only
thing my car needs now is a clutch and
thats not that bad either. Excellent
vehicle and it's alot of fun to drive
and also alot of fun to trick out GREAT
CAR, GO MAZDA!!!!!!!

When I bought it in 2001 from an old
couple, there is only 20K miles on it
because they said they had been seldom
One cylinder almost didn't work after 2
weeks and I had to keep changing
sparkplugs and adding engine oil
because the idle cylinder burned a lot
of oil. I took it to machanics several
times. They changed all the 12 valves
and used some chemicals to clean the
cylinder, but those didn't work.
Finally I sold it after wasting lots of
bucks on it and before wasting more.
I will never buy a used car anymore.

I bought my car used and have owned it
for 6 years, now. Other than routine
maintenance, the only thing that gives
me trouble is the A/C and heating fan,
although I have had to have the brakes
(rotors, discs and all) completely
replaced once and may have to do it
again soon. I love driving this car.
The 5-speed manual is fun. The car
settles in nicely at 120km for highway
driving, just under the radar traps.
