Perfect for Me-I Miss it!

by Protege Princess from Hixson, TN | July 17, 2010

Bought this car off the showroom. Had the right amount of zip & room. The back seat fold down was a great feature. Hood was low enough to see over; same for the back window. Great style, with just the right details. Everyone said, "that car is you." A Ford F150 backed into it in a parking lot, and it was too costly to fix. Insurance deemed it a total loss. I really am bummed, as I planned to drive it a few more years. It was THAT good.

good vehicle for your money

by City driver from Warren, MI | October 19, 2009

My mazda was a 1993 but it got er done. I bought mine used for 800.00, with about 160,000 miles on it. the only thing i had to replace on it was the radiator (it had a small crack on the top when I bought it) and the distributor cap. but I also used my car for work driving all over Michigan through rain sleet and snow. sometime over a hundred miles in a day. I beat this car and it still would run. if you need a reliable car this is defiantly a good choice.

Geat car for a student

by Student from Bethlehem, PA | January 8, 2009

I bought this car used and owned it for 7 years thru H.S. and college. It was a great car for getting around in and going back and forth to school. Plenty of room in the trunk and the back seats split for carrying skies.
