I've only put 15,000 mi on in 3 yrs. But have enjoyed every mile. Lots of power and comfort. It has 2.85 gears in rear end and 32 mpg highway w/ summer time gas is a constant! So far I've replaced brakes and $60 starter from e- bay. Nice car and reliable so far .

I bought this car as a second car. I use it as my daily driver for my 48 mile roundtrip commute. I bought the car from an elderly gentleman who had taken very good care of the car. It was in very good shape and even had a fresh paint job. There was one problem that he was unable to figure out. The car had very rough shifts generally from 1st to 2nd gear. He said he'd tried several shops but to no avail. I took the car to a transmission specialist who said the problem was the throttle positioning sensor. I had it replaced for about $200. No more rough shifts or smoke. The car has a very good ride. It's very comfortable for me at 6'2" and about 270 lbs.

my white 88 929 was my first car. i
had it for two years. it had 97000
miles when i bought it. i just traded
it in on a newer mazda millenia, but
it will be missed. it was everything i
wanted in a car and then some.
extremely good for long trips. not the
most stylish for young people, but
anyone who ever rode in it appreciated
its quality and design. it wasn't new,
but it really was the nicest car in my
high school parking lot...way better
than a '99 cavalier or '96 jetta
(honestly). but toward the end, it
started needing more oil than gas, and
i had to say goodbye, but all good
things must end.
