Rugged, tough and reliable
I started to use a lot of oil and then I had the engine overall-ed at 154000 km - Mazda F8 1.8l spares used.
Seats are not very strong as I had them repaired frequently. The Speedometer is very incorrect against my GPS about 15 km/h slower!
I love this vehicle for its purpose- off-road and SUV. it is not designed to be a family vehicle.
I found a new mechanic who tuned this car to give top performance- what a difference it made on economy and performance. Spares are hard to come by- maybe someone can let us know who to find it in South Africa. This Rocsta of mine is very reliable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
