1992 Mazda MX3 1.6 from North America
The Devil Car
Car started off with just an idle problem, turned it up and thought I had a sweet car. God, was I wrong. Overheats, Idle goes up and down, car alarm wouldn't stop going off. Never wants to start, leaves me stranded all the time.
The car looks great, I love the way it handles. For the first five days I loved it,then this car went down hill fast. It started overheating and wouldn't throw any heat. My idles goes up and down. Car alarm goes on and off all the time. It is a tiny car which dosen't bother me that much because I saw it before I bought it, so I knew this, but over time you will find this car harder and harder to deal with. It should be a two seater the backseats are about pointless. The trunk area is very nice and surprisingly large. The 1.6 is a gutless engine on the highway would definitely try to get the V6. Fuel economy is great and that was about the only thing I liked about the car when I got rid of it. Now I have a 1995 VW jetta and I LOVE my jetta so much more. I've heard great feedback about the MX-3's and I really wish I would have had the same luck others did. Worst 1000 miles of my life.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
