I have driven this Mazda from Wichita, Ks to Kansas City, Ks almost every weekend for a year. The car handles very well but has a few electrical problems. The overdrive light blinks off and on occasionally and the enging light is always on. The transmission is slow sometimes. I also had to have a new coil. I like the way it handles and would like to restore this one.
I love the sun roof. The size of the car is just right for me. My interior needs to be totally redone. I have had very little problems with not starting.
The transmission seems to be the biggest problem so far. And the coil has been replaced. The front end may also need some attention.
