With my experience, all four door panels have cracked right down the middle of the door. Also, the fuel pump went at 109, 000 miles. I just bought a 1993 Mazda 929, and have been happy with my purchase. The engine is strong, dependable and gives me a sense of comfort as well as safety.
DEAR MAZDA 929 OWNERS (June 2006) :
Keep waiting just a little while longer... keep restoring, upgrading, maintaining and keeping those cars running and looking hot! Drive very, very carefully to avoid collisions, since the auto insurance companies don't consider this car of any special value if it needs major repair after an accident.
I'm betting on our having a very valuable ($$$) Import "Classic" by 2008. The current (lousy) Book Value for this car will begin to increase, and someday, someone will profile this car in "Robb Report" Magazine.
My daughter has a '93 929, which was previously a one-owner car owned by her aunt who put about 63k miles on it, and gifted to my daughter when she got her driver's license 2 1/2 years ago, and her aunt bought a new Chrysler 300. The car is nearly perfect except for some problems with the trim coming off the door panels, visors, and posts on the windshield, and a few dings on the exterior. We are in the process of gluing the trim back on. We've recently put new tires and rims on it and new shocks. She loves this car and we've taken it on a few road trips, leaving our new Nissan Pathfinder at home. It's very comfortable on the highway. She's in college now and drives it home often - about 370 miles r/t. Never had a problem, knock on wood. We maintain a AAA membership for her, but haven't had to use it.
