"It just keeps going. Has leaks since I bought, drove it to Texas, Las Vegas and back to California. Kept maintenance on it. Sixteen years later, still runs GREAT. My friends say it is time to get rid of it, but it still runs great."

"I purchased this car with 88,000 miles on it two years ago.. I love how it handles. I love how big the trunk is for this small type of car. It also gets really good gas mileage as well. This car also handles good in the snow/ice. I change the oil every 3,000 miles and its wonderful. The only thing i do not like is the road noise. I feel like its too loud in the cabin. This car gets really good HP. It will pick you and go. I travel a lot in my Mazda and i am so glad that i bought this little car."

"I purchased this car from a dear older woman who had to give up driving. I bought it in 2006 with 10,070 original miles with a rear spoiler on it. It currently has 79,213 original miles. I have been quite pleased with the car. It's great on gas mileage around town and long distance. The only negative about this car and I've seen with another in the complex I live in, is that the driver's side passenger door wheel well rusts. It's a defect in the manufacturing of the vehicle, otherwise a great car. Here's my unfortunate thing, a person speeding rear-ended me, and in turn I hit the car in front of me. I am hoping the insurance company does not total my car and it can be fixed, if not I'll be so sad as it's been such a wonderful compact car for me!"

Best Car Ever!
