1984 Mazda 323 Review
Mazda 323 1984 1.3 5 Door — Cheap motoring fun, Quicker acceleration than many modern 1.3s with it's SOHC 68bhp engine, and due to the fact it weighs next to nothing. Had non-original 1980s spoked BBS alloys on the car I drove which looked fantastic (different car in picture), and around only 40k miles. Usual bombproof 1980s Japanese reliability. They can rust quite badly though. Fun car to drive if you enjoy back to basics motoring.
Pros: Cheap, Nippy, Reliable, Economical
Cons: Doesnt even have a FM radio, No rev counter, No other luxuries of any kind, Can be stolen very easily

Good Looks, Good Handling Not That Much Poke
Own a Yellow SP20 version of he car. It's okay but it is a pain that it uses 95RON fuel. Great grip and brakes but there is a few reliability issues with the mini coils and the we've had the gearbox... Read More
