12 Years of owning a Navajo.
By Sean_Riggan on
1991 Mazda Navajo 2dr SUV 4WD
I bought my Navajo when it was one year old w/20,000 miles in 1992. In the intervening 90,000 miles, I have found the Navajo to be unusually reliable. It has never required any major repairs. Car has tow package w/3.73 rear end gears and has always towed very well, even large loads (albeit usually not much faster than 65 MPH). 112k miles, and the engine has literally never burned a drop of oil!
Doesn't look exactly like the 2 door Explorer. Different front grill & headlights help. The tweed seats are much nicer than in the Explorer, and hold up well over time.
Gas mileage is so-so. Various handles and levers tend to break over time. So far I have replaced the int. drivers door handle, drivers seat recline lever & center console arm.
