This is my first car, and it has gotten me through my first year of college back and forth 20 miles each way 5 days a week. It is really reliable, it's quick and light, and very fun to drive. For it being a '94 it still has that up to date look. Mazda really did well with this model.
Excellent gas mileage for a V6 engine. Great acceleration, and reliable with regular maintenance of full synthetic oil diet every 3000 miles, and 93 octane fuel.
Shouldn't have been downgraded from the Japanese motor which has 200hp stock as compared to 165hp here in the US.
