Without a doubt, the best car I ever
owned. I gave my son this car a year
ago for him to drive to work. Later, I
sold him my truck and he returned the
Mazda. I fully intended to trade it in
for whatever it was worth, considering
it had 122,000 miles on it. The moment
I got in again, after a year, I
realized I couldn't get rid of it. It
was too reliable and too good a ride.
I had a mechanic check it out. It only
needed new spark plug wires. In
124,000 miles, besides the usual
maintenance, only the water pump failed
(at about 30,000 miles) which was under
warantee. Well worth the $22,000 or so
I spent on it.
Great power in the pinch.
