1993 Mazda MX-3 2dr Hatchback


Review

I purchased this car used in 1999 with 104,000 km and it was the 4 cyl. At that time I didn't have a lot of money for a car as I had just taken out a mortgage and needed a car. I am not sorry for this purchase, as the car has lasted me until now September 2010 and is now showing it's age and I am replacing it. I've pretty much driven it into the ground and other than maintenance, had not put money into any repairs...it's been very dependable.


Best Features

Love the look of the car when I purchased it and I still think it looks nice in 2010. It has been very good on gas. Driving and handling has been fun.


Worst Features

Because it was only the 4 cylinder, there wasn't a lot of power, but I won't complain as I bought it at a very low price when I purchased it used and it came through with flying colors for the next 11 years that I've owned it.

Review

I can't say enough about this car. It might not be the coolest car on the road but I owned this car for over 12 years, put over 110,000 miles on it, and it saved me a ton of cash. The reliability of this car is off the charts. I might have put $3k into it the entire time I owned it, and that's replacing consumables like brakes, exhaust, etc. The car never failed me once and is probably still on the road somewhere. I sold the car with 139,000 miles on it and it was still on the original clutch!


Best Features

Comfortable for a small car, nice design, visible instrumentation, plenty of room for 2 people but no more. Great paint - required very little wax to keep the clear coat in good shape and black paint black. Great gas mileage and never burned oil.


Worst Features

No complaints - this is a pretty basic car. If you take care of this car it will run forever.

Review

this is a great car I have had mine for a little less than 6 months but i love it i had a little electrical trouble but that was because whoever i bought it from could nt put in a stereo. my car has 190000+ miles on it and still runs like a charm, mazda did great.


Best Features

The four cylinder version gets upwards of 30 MPG which is great for rising gas prices. i have had this car up to 110 with no problems a really sound car


Worst Features

Weather stripping usually goes bad and dries out after a while, a definite improvement needed

Review

I absolutely love my Mazda MX-3. I don't think for what I paid I could possibly find a car thats more fun to drive, and easy to find information on too. I recommend all MX-3 owners and future owners go to www.mx-3.com for all their mx-3 information. I've had the car for about 3 months its the best car I've ever had. The car has fantastic cornering, and really good acceleration. The seats hug you when you drive all and all great car.


Best Features

Sport Seats, Hold Button For Incliment weather, Great Handling, Great Aftermarket Part Availabitily.


Worst Features

Rear Windshield Wiper, No Cruise Control on Base Model, Bring Back The MX-3
