1992 Mazda 929 3.0 V6 from North America
Luxury trash can
When I got it, all four struts were bad. had to change them all, about $200 each for original Mazda parts. but still after I changed them, it still rides terrible.
Had problem with engine performance, kept on hesitating. fixing it is expensive so I didn't bother.
I then had problems with idle rpm, when its cold, engine rpm goes up to 3000 and fluctuates rapidly. which is very frustrating and annoying.
Decent acceleration from 0-60 about 8 seconds for a big car like this one, but I can still beat a 1996 Chevy blazer LT. (sorry dude, I had to put it)
Top speed is bad, I don't think it could go to 115 mph.
It's a gas guzzler, about 13 mpg,
It looks really nice though, it turns heads, but I wouldn't advise any body to get one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have the exact same problem when starting my car on very cold days - RPM goes up to 3000 and fluctuates. Have you gotten yours fixed?

I bought my 929 new in '92 and still have it with 96,000 miles. The ONLY problems I have ever had was a period when the engine idle would not go below 3000 rpm when coming to a stop. One can of Motor-up fixed it. Never had the problem again. This year, 2006 I had my second problem. The fan clutch went out and I had to replace the fan.
Other than that I LOVE this car. BTW it WILL do the 140 mph that the speedometer says... I have done it on a deserted highway.
If they had continued to make these cars I would be buying them still.
