1993 Mazda MX3 V4 from North America
Mx3's are lemons
The brakes have been replaced twice.
The clutch has been replaced twice.
The water pump has been replaced.
The driver's side window motor and grips went bad, and were replaced.
The rotors have been replaced.
The ball-joint broke.
The front springs cracked and broke.
The automatic seat belt motor is going bad.
This car is a very sporty car and gets 30 miles to the gallon, 40 on freeway.
However, the MX3 is very expensive to repair and is time to retire only at age 10.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

There was a recall for that issue. I have the same issue and it was already looked at by dealership in 2000 (previous owner). The dealership does not want to fix it for free, but I did call up Mazda and they said they could reopen the recall case and have the issue resolved.

I own a 1993 no problems at all with it so I must be the lucky 1 I think.
