I now have 128,000 miles on my 24 valve 2.5 V-6 engine and since this car and engine were made by mazda they have been very reliable. This car drives like a more expensive car and holds the road as if riding on train tracks. Great acceleration combined by good fuel economy + above average construction. Very tight car which i intend to drive into the ground.
Power confort well built reliable economical
None, if you get the mazda built car (cousin) you will only only pay more. Tho discontinued, this car was never properly marketed. A small v-6 is now required for the times we live in. High fuel prices are here to stay. Most people don't know the name but like the looks right off when they see one!
