1989 Mazda 323 GLX 1.3 carb.
Great (second hand) price/quality
-The air tube connected to the tank was twisted so every liter that went in tried to gush out again. easy 1,70 euro repair.
-Rear suspension is a bit wobbly and sounds broken, but passed MOT in that state.???
-replaced cracked right rearview mirror.
-corroded electrical contacts.
-sometimes hard to get in 1st gear (especially when cold)
-rear window wiper motor broke.
This is a good looking car in it's class.
Compared to my previous car ('88 escort) it's much more luxerious; better seats and adjustment (back seats too!), adjustable steering wheel, adjustable dash lights, interior lights that stay on long enough to find ignition.
The interior finish is good, nice fabric (apart from the fake leather)
Minus is the distinct 80's dashboard and the fact that this model doesn't have an RPM clock.
Other minus is the automatic choke which doesn't seem to work properly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
