Review

My wife bought her MX3 GS new in 1994, and it still has under 40,000 miles on it and is still like a new car. Granted she has not put a lot of miles on it, and it is garaged all the time, but this has honestly been one of the absolute most trouble-free cars I've ever seen. Add to that that it is fun to drive, looks good, it's comfortable and relatively economical. After 18 years of ownership my wife still loves her MX3 and never even considers that she might want somethng newer. Only regular upkeep (oil changes, 1 set of tires, 2 batteries, 1 tune-up and we did the 60K scheduled maintenance at 30K just because of its age), and 1 minor repair (cracked air hose). Hard to beat


Best Features

Fun, comfortable, reliable & economical


Worst Features

I do wish the driver's seat would go back another inch. Otherwise the only issue I would suggest is improvement of the window weatherstripping, it's not really formed right at the curve of the window and tends to sort of kink up there

Review

This is a great little v6 engine. I bought it used with 183,000kms and it now has 200,000.... i have not had a single engine related problem and it runs good and pulls hard. Also has original tranny, and at 200,000 kms, thats one good reason why imports are great and GM's SUCK !!!


Best Features

Love the interior,,, comfy front seats and tons of room up front for a small car... i hear the back is quite small and uncomfy, but what do i care, im the pilot :) Also the exterior is way ahead of its time... people aways think my car is newer than it is.

Review

this car is SO fun to drive. while it has its fair share of mechanical issues and kinks. it is still incredibly reliable, and should last a longggg time if maintained properly. if you plan to buy this car do your research! mx-3.com has a tech forum which details most of the common problems found on this car. most of the problems are minor. that aside, the car is zippy, its sporty, and its FUN. it handles like its on a RAIL. not only that it gets good mileage, and it's easy to maintain. i wouldn't trade my mx-3 in for anything out there today! :)


Best Features

overall aesthetic design, handling, size


Worst Features

quality of the parts. a lot of the parts mazda used on this car have been known to wear easily. with proper maintenence though that is not even that big of an issue. :)
