1994 Mazda 121 1.5 from Australia and New Zealand
Low cost motoring, good for running errands around town
Rear seat clips have snapped off and so have the ones that hold the sun visor up.
'Hold' button for the automatic transmition stopped working, and me and my father had to take out all of the plastic panels in the interior to open it up and find the problem, which was that the hold button cable was snapped in half due to being designed poorly (this was because it was in a position that would let it move, and over time fray, and it snapped in half)
CV joints are starting to crackle when I corner.
Paint on the bonnet and boot is down to the clear coat, and is almost ruined.
Car has never let me down, if it doesn't start the first time, it will definitely start the second time.
Its somewhat average on fuel, it gets around 330ks on 30 litres of 91 unleaded fuel.
Very spacious for a small car, has lots of head room as well, however the seats are somewhat uncomfortable because there is very little foot room, even with the seat fully back.
Has an acceptable amount of power considering the engine size is, can get you to the speed limit in no time, however it's my opinion that it should have been made in a 1.8 litre because it needs extra power on highways.
Comes with good speakers for a car its age.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
