323 Se — This 89' 323 SE is my first car, it equipped with a 1.6L SOHC engine, with about 85bhp. car is under power , brake is adequate, handling is good, steering is sharp. The build quality is good, no major problem during the ownership. The exterior styling is ok, interior is spacious. The gas mileage is good, and it is fun to drive ( i learned most of my driving skills from this car....)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Easy to drive, great commuter car....

Cons: Nothing

Mazda 323 Turbo Awd — Mazda 323 4WD Turbo 1600cc DOCH Original: 148 bhp 195 Nm Recently: Enough to outrun a Nizzan 350Z 280BHP! ;P Now: Won't run properly/misfiring. Probably broken crankshaft near the bolt. The funniest car I ever driven! =D http://www.carfolio.com/specifications/models/car/?car=29733

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Small, fun, light weight, direct steering. Its like driving a Go-Kart!

Cons: The transmissionfluid can overheat if you play to much. The crankshaft is to weak for heavy tuning.

Great Fun To Drive. Love The Pop-up Headlights. — Pretty good off the mark, smooth braking - not too touchy. Handles well - great fun around the corners. A few cracks in the plastic trimming, apart from that still in great condition. Engine rattled but was fixed with an oil change.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable and still stylish despite its age.

Cons: Nope...get one

The Best Car I Ever Drove — it is the best car to drive and easy to tune but hard to find parts which is the worst part of it. * Performance - best (carburetor modification) * Build Quality - still good after 15 years * Appearance - popup head lights * Cost of Ownership - maintenance is quite alot * Fun Factor - performs the way you want to

Pros: response, appearance,quality

Cons: hard to find parts
