A respective Japanese car!


Good reliable car. Especially running cost is my favorite advantage:low fuel consumption, easily and cheaply serviced. I have changed the head gasket at 60,000 mile, the radiator at 40,000 miles. The exterior and exterior is kept in good enough condition. It reaches high rpm in very short time. Its accelaration is not my favorite one, but I am very pleased with its torque. A good Japanese car for the eighties... a real respective car plus reliable nows. The only things I have to do are replace the tires and get it in for a service periodically.Finally, I could not say no to an engine replacement with a GT engine (twin curb).I love my old ford even the fact is actually a Mazda!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
