What an affordable V6 hot hatch!
Broken CV joint had to be replaced at around 60k.
Engine oil had to be replenished even everything was checked to be OK!
This car is the perfect cop bait (mine is a red one), even when driven non-aggressively.
Nice look, nice exhaust sound, nice engine - too bad Mazda doesn't make it anymore.
I owned both 4-cyl and V6 model - get the V6 by all means, it's well worth the money.
The roof held in place exceptionally well even my MX-3 rolled over. (Yes, I crawled out from the rear hatch unhurt!)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
