I purchased my Mazda as a second owner. It had 30,000 miles on it. It was a lease turn in. I didn't have any problems at all with my car until the timing belt went out. That was after about 125,000 miles, got that replaced and have been going ever since! That is the only major issue I ever had. I now have 209,000 miles on it and it's still going strong.
Love the handling, very smooth ride, love the sound system, Bose
paint on the outside mirrors began to chip off after about 5 years of owning it
I have had my Mazda for 9 years. I replaced the transmission at 100,000. I have had a number of other parts replaced. The engine has been pretty good. But the parts are very high and mostly have to be ordered. The resale value is is kinda low. The car really looks good but in terms of durability, it leaves a lot to be desired. Mazda really needs to step it up a bit.
Looks great. Sporty look. Fast car. Good sound system.
P1195 EGR BOOST SENSOR, this will kill
your pickup and gas mileage.
engine makes noise after 100,000 to
solve put 2 quarts of karosene and
idle it for 5 minutes, change oil and
filter, use SAE30 the noise is gone
for 20000 miles.
Discontinued because of bad rep. after
FORD bought MAZDA, their vehicles went
down the toilet. I remember my 1984
626 ran over 300,000 miles, you could
never find that now !!!!!
Mazda dealers overcharge, dont buy
Rotate tires after every oil change.
I rated the car so high because I sold
it for profit !!!!
looks luxurious, but is cheap
IF FORD MOTOR COMPANY SELLS MAZDA ,
THE VALUE WILL GO UP.
