1993 Mazda 323 1.6L 4 cylinder
Excellent and reliable part of our family, and 24 years old!
We redid the brakes and rear sway bar, which really helped the handling. Mind you, the sway bar fell off from rust. It was a cheap fix.
Overall getting everything redone has been amazingly affordable with our good, local small town mechanic.
Replaced the gear box... drives like new now. Also new front struts. Handles so well now. Really fun to drive.
Changing the winter tires in the driveway is also easy.
We hope to keep it running regularly.
We love this little car. It's been named Maggie and is part of our family. The hood is a different colour from the teal green body. And it's taken us on road trips all over British Columbia where we live. For a 24 year old little hatchback, it's just so versatile and reliable. Fun to drive, and it gets looks... as it's got the retro look now.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
