I bought my car (a retired demo model with 3K miles on it) straight from the dealer. In addition to being extremely reliable, my Mazda is fun to drive and a real beauty. Whenever I pull up to a glass-front store, I am taken by the beauty of my car. :) This car will keep going as long as it is properly maintained.
Acceleration, handling, oscillating vents, placement of buttons (horn, etc.) and great style.
I bought this car about 12 years ago,
and I have had minimal problems with
it. I have loved owning this car, and
transport everything from plants to
antique windows and doors. I've had a
few problems with the A/C, and the
antenne mast, but otherwise, this has
been a fantastic car that has never
left me standed.
I've had my MX-6 for almost 12 years,
and it has been an excellent reliable
vehicle. I have a 5-speed with the
original clutch! Kept the oil changed
about every 4k and timing belt every
75k, and now have 198,000k miles on
mine. The AC did go out about a year
ago, and the paint job is fading badly,
but the engine still purrs like a
kitty. I plan to buy another Mazda.
Gas mileage (still 35mpg hwy),
dependability, sporty look,
oscillatiing center vents.
