I Wish Mazda Was Still Making This Car In It's Orginal Form. — This car is a true Gran Touring Sedan. It goes when you step on the throttle, and stops when necessary, quickly. Other than what is required to keep a car in top mechanical condition for it's years and mileage, nothing extraordinary has been required. I continue to get raves about the appearance and the quality of workmanship, interior and exterior. Cost of ownership has been what is expected for a car of this type. It is a BMW eater. They cannot stay with it on the interstate, and they cannot beat it's economy of operation, 22 to 28mpg! I have driven many other cars, and this one is the best value and fun to drive regradless the cost!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handles as if on rails.  

Cons: If you desire it, no convenient place to hold a cup.

626s — Actually Ive had two of these in white. Both served as a temporary transportation. Did their part well and without problems. First one was a 2-door automatic sport saloon and the other a manual liftback 4-door. Both with 2.0 liter carburetor engines. Fuel economy was not good but as I said both cars were reliable and good to drive.

Pros: Worked like theyre supposed to

Cons: Thirsty carburetor engines especially with automatic gearbox

Love The Space But Not The Under-squared Engine, Great All Round Gt Crusier — Sips fuel if you are lgiht footed and provides decent handling a car of this age with all the electronic goodies you expect cars of today to have... Great long distance crusier but soft on the acceleration

Pros: Space, electronic gimmicks

Cons: under-squared engine

Sleeper — This was ny first car and it was a good one... the Turbo was kikking at low torque so it was giving a lot of power for a long time... a 4 dr that does 0-60 in less than 7.0 sec... that was rare back than...

Pros: I4 12V Turbo... need to say more

Cons: alectronic suspension was so expensive to repair
