1978 Mazda 808 1.6 from Australia and New Zealand
Reliable, cheap running, cute gem
Faulty alternator, caused many headaches and flat batteries.
Muffler exploded on the way back from auto mechanics who fixed the alternator, arc welded a Camry muffler after removing what was left of the old one.. first time using an arc welder for such a job.
Door light does not work, can't figure that one out!
This car is wonderful. Despite its age (20 odd years old) it performs like a trooper, even when my kiwi friend belts the hell out of it.
Great stereo, not the original, but wowee nevertheless.
Starts 1st go on very cold mornings.
Quite a lot of leg room, in fact the most leg room in a car I have ever seen.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
