1992 Mazda B2600 1.6 from North America
Been a very reliable car
Replaced muffler and tail pipe @ 165K.
Replaced clutch slave and master cylinder @ 190K.
Replaced fuel pump @ 202K.
Replaced A/C belt and other belts every 3K-5K.
I have loved my B2600i since I bought it as a demo from the dealer lot in 1992. Engine-wise, it's been great... everything original and no engine problems to speak of, except routine maintenance, oil changes, 2 brake jobs, tune ups, etc.. A/C runs, except on #1 fan speed. However, now that it's passed 200,000 miles, I need a new radiator (crack on top, near left-side corner) and new exhaust system.
The last repair job last month was getting a front end alignment ($60) and replacing the fuel pump ($400). Is this car worth continuing to repair or having a transmission overhaul when the time comes? Every time I take it to the mechanic, it seems I spend anywhere from $100-$350 (labor is $65/hour), plus it currently only gets about 23mpg (city).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
