This was my first vehicle and i wouldn't trade it for any other out there. Standard maintenance is simple and cheap, and this is pretty much the cheapest vehicle out there to insure. It is also amazingly reliable and fun to drive. It is a real economy vehicle (mine has no power steering, power windows, power locks, rear bumper, A/C, bucket seats, etc.), but it's still so much fun, especially with a manual transmission. Note though that it only makes all of 93 rip roaring horsepower. Oh, and the suspension is virtually non-existent.

Bought in Sept. 1993. Now has 99k,
nothing has gone wrong. Did the timing
belt thing at about 60k, did my own oil
and filter changes every 3-4k miles,
replaced plugs and plug wires, tires
(once) and batteries. Probably 3
batteries. Very reliable, fair gas
mileage (22 around town), just keeps on
running. Doesn't use oil now, interior
getting kinda rasty now, but little
problems for almost 100K. 93 was last
year of Japanese make Mazda PU's, been
Ford Rangers since, don't know how Ford
models have done, but the Japanese Mazda
trucks are very reliable. My 4th one.

i've driven my mazda for five years and 90000 miles now. In all that time, i have done nothing to to truck except change the oil, and at times i've gotten behind on that. with 120000 on the clock, i can't complain about the truck. it gets the job done.
