My mazda drives like a dream. I have a 97 automatic and should have blown up by now and OD out but won't quit . My 98 manual drives like a dream, interior is grey and sharp. It is a comfortable ride and with regular tune up gas mileage is still good. Love to just go for a ride or drive on pretty days.
I love the look inside and out, the bose speakers, the leather interior, sun roof, all electric, and drives great. But love that it don't have the usual tan interior, it is grey.
The front bumpers are weak. Both my 626's bumpers were cracked when got them. The windows could roll up faster.
