"I love my Navajo, it is reliable. I had this car for most of my high school years, I could not ask for a better beginner car. There is only bad thing I don't like, the gas, it is a gas hog. I try to keep it filled to at least a quart tank. I drive about 20 miles to work to most of my pay check goes to gas. I never had any big problems with it. I would recommend this.

"I haven't owned this car for long but, I love it. It's fun to drive anywhere. Even long trips. Comfortable seating. Good cargo room. Steering is really easy and you can make sharp turns with ease. Overall fun SUV."
"For a first car the Mazda Navajo is a great one! Mine has 204000 miles on it and still gets up and goes! This particular one had a hard life and I test it every now and then and it never fails to surprise me! The motor and tranny are great and no leaks or cracks in any of the glass! this rig is very dependable and I would trust it driving from Coos Bay to Eugene!"
"The rarest of all SUVs the Mazda navajo is just a ford Explorer... But as few as 9000 ever made this will be one day a Highly saught after gem.
Im Keeping my Navajo as long as my life allows me too.."
"Was looking into the cash-for-clunker trade-in on this when I realized it still has plenty life left in it. Minor problems but has never let me down - even after I submerged it a couple years back. I love this truck!"
"I owned this vehicle for 9 years and when I bought it it had 40,000miles on it. I got rid of it due to rust issues and a leaky sunroof. This suv never let me down. I traded it in with 182,000miles and it ran and drove fine. No oil leaks but hubby changed the oil every 3000 miles unbelieveable vehicle 4 wheel drive went like a tank. Would have bought another one but like everything else when they are good they quit making them. Hope this helps if you can still find one buy it even if has higher miles."
