1992 Mazda MX3 1.6L Gasoline from North America
A sporty fast compact that fits into any budget
I bought this vehicle in Sept. of 2003, when I drove it home, I noticed a miss-fire in the engine. I thought that it was only the spark plugs or wires, so I replaced those and that didn't help, but I gained horse power. I just recently found out that the miss is caused by a faulty Fuel Injector for my third Cylindar.
Other than that, I have had no problems out of this car.
The Mazda MX3 is a great car for the soon to be racer, what it lacks in take-off it makes up for in top end. I am only running on 3/4 Cylindars and I am still able to run 140Mph. on the Interstate.
The handling of this car is outstanding, with this Sport Compact design, the Mazda MX3 is by far the best handling vehicle I have ever owned or driven.
This vehicle is very dependable, easy to maintain, and cost-efficient.
I highly recommend this vehicle for anyone who wants a sporty car with excellent gas mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

MX-3 4 banger tops out at about 100 mph...MX-3 V6 (which I have) tops out about 125. That and the mx isn't geared to go 140. It'd be cool if it could go that fast, but it would probably take flight by then lol.

I agree, could just about get 120 out of mine, and even then I feel like I'm flying through turbulence.

Actually, I have a 4 cylinder mx-3 and believe it or not I got that up to 145 mph and it has 181000 miles on it. maybe my speedometer is off, but I don't think so. boys get your cars looked at, there might be something wrong with them!!
