1994 Mazda 323 GT-R 1.8 turbo
Hard to find pocket rocket
Radiator replaced at 42000.
Shaft cover (rubber) blew at 55000 and 62000, replaced with a bmw part.
Clutch wore out, replaced at 48000.
A veritable pocket rocket with 189 HP under the bonnet. Handling is superb, due to all wheel drive and hard suspension. Designed as a rally car, this is even better on dirt or other loose surfaces. The stealth factor is fun too, such speed and power is not expected from such a small and unknown car. The rarity has a price though, some parts are hard to come by. Uses a lot of fuel too, but an enjoyable sports car nevertheless.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
