I'd buy another one
Odd thing, my Mazda shut off once in a while when driving. But it was a manual, so I just put it in neutral, and turned it back on and kept going. Good thing it didn't have power steering to begin with.
Brake lines and fuel lines rusted out bad, but I live where we douse our roads with salt, so that is expected.
Best car I've ever owned.
Economical and cheap to maintain. Buy the manual; gives it more pep.
Water leaked in the back hatch.
Never came with power steering or a radio; it was a factory option (ha), but that's the reason I loved it so much. It was no frills, just money saving and fun.
I owned a 2006 Mustang. Bought it new, and after 4 years I sold it. I will probably never buy a new car again. To me, I enjoyed my 323 more than the Mustang. But I guess money saving factors into what I enjoy more.
Great, reliable 323, no real issues, always got us to where we needed to go. Amazing in the winter with our snow tires on. So light it would cruise over the snow, even when we had a big snowstorm. Gas mileage was amazing, city and highway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
