This is the fourth Mazda PU I have
owned, starting with a '89 model. I was
originally interested in economy and
utility of a small pick-up and Mazda's
extended warranty(then, 50,000 miles)
was the deciding feature for me. The
first two('89 & '95) were driven over
80000 miles, the last one('99), over
100,000 with no problems. My '03 is very
sporty and came with a 100,000 mile
warranty, which I plan to use to the
fullest. Economy ranges from 23 to 26 mpg.
Sporty styling, reasonable gas milage,
and confort(on smooth roads!!) are
favorite features for me.
The only improvements I can think of are
a little more power and little smoother
ride on rougher roads.
