GREAT CAR extremely reliable!
Exhaust replaced at 228.000km.
Now experiencing problems while riding, it seems like my Mazda is choking and it stutters if I accelerate at 80km/hour, at 110 and 120km/hour.the more I accelerate the more it looses power. if I let go for a sec than it all comes back to normal. this problem occurred after the one time when oil lamp went on and than I had to fill up the motor with oil. I m still looking for the cause and solution. (its pretty hard to find honest service guys around here)
Extremely reliable!!! I bought it for 500 euro and it was every cent worth!
It's a standard model, no extras beside the radio. no power steering (it sure keeps my shoulders in shape) and until the recent problems it used to accelerate like a bullet. its my second Mazda. its spacious inside I can even put 4 kids in the backseat.
Consumption has been OK till now.
I'm looking for a bigger car now cos I have 9 kids, but till than we're hoping its gonna give us a few more 1000s of km of pleasure.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
