Review
When we bought this care from a private party, it hadn't been well cared for. It wasn't garaged and it had some body rust on the roof. Within a year it required a 'mini- overhaul' at about $4,000. But, we loved how it drove and the power was good for the size of the car. Since that first repair, we've only had one other incident: the guides and pulleys for the engine belt assembly failed and shredded the belt on a trip. Fortunately, Mazda engines shut down when that happens (some don't and the engine is destroyed). We had the roof replaced, the exterior completely repaired and we repainted it the original 'sand mica'. The engine runs strong. We're keeping it!
Favorite Features
Interior materials and workmanship are superior quality; exterior car panels feel 'thicker' than our other cars have been; "Hold" button on directional signal arm keeps downhill speed constant by downshifting and upshifting depending on decent; gas mileage is good(25 mpg hwy)for this size car.
Suggested Improvements
Engine roars like a 747 at startup, then quiets down; valve arms (tappits?) make loud clicking noise (can't be helped very much by oil additives); needs another side door on driver side for back seat entry.
