Great Reliable Car

I got this car as a graduation present. It runs like a dream with routine maintenance. It's comfortable and the interior is roomy. The 4 cylinder engine helps to keep fuel costs low.

The car is worthless. It will cause nothing but trouble. The biggest fault in the car is the transmission. For some odd idea, Ford sticks a Ford transmission with a Mazda engine. Outcome of this, transmission overheats!!. You'll end up driving the car for about 30 miles then the Overdrive light will start blinking, causing the car to change gears roughly. You'll soon find that this is a costly repair because Mazda can not fix this problem and only suggests to buy a new transmission at $2,700, just for the parts. AND THIS PROBLEM IS NOT CONSIDERED A DEFECT. If you like wasting money, then this car is for you. Search the internet regarding this problem and you will see many complaints.

I purchased this vehicle for less than $2500, it semmed like a fair idea. The car had one previous owner and I bought the car from that owner. Within six months of the purchase I replaced the battery twice, distributer and wires, alternater, and headlight relay switch. I have totalled more $3500 plus the price of the vehicle in just getting the thing to run well. So as for this car I would not ever recommend this to a friend or even foe for that matter.
