Compared it to a Honda Accord DX and
bought the Mazda for style, ride and
handling. Very willing dohc 4, very
happy at 75mph. Great mileage 26/36
(five speed) No serious problems. Very
trustworthy even today at 8 yrs old.
Great power from 4cy. Loves to run,
especially above 3,000rpm. Great
handling-Bridgestone tires. Still sexy
to look at. Love the oscillating center
Dash over air bag. Seat belt
occasionally tangles in lumbar knob. No
problems to speak of. Mine is a manual
so no auto trans. problems.
