Best There Is For The Price — iLike: the speed of it, handles well, awesome power delivery, sharp responses, lot more room on the inside than one would assume... iDont like: how parts are hard to come by in my country, lack of boot space for a good-sized subwoofer...

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

Pros: Its a hoot to drive

Cons: parts hard to come by, even at the dealers

Nicely Transformed Macy — Still has nice bodyline after all these years, with a little creativity, you can transform the car to a looker. Had Macy on a heart transplant, complete set of muscles and a complete dress makeover. The price of this car has gone rock bottom in this country. Hence if you can find a decent condition one it will be good.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The well built interiors

Cons: The frameless windows and gear level bushes

Mazda 323 — I`s build like a tank...looks like it`s gonna last forever. the engine is picky, but with automatic transmission you need to floor it a bit to explore the full potential of the engine, with fair modifications as a conical filter and a little bit of advance in the ignition, you can squeze some extra torque, and feel some "growl" in the heavy dutty accelerations. the handling is amazing you can corner fast, faster than you can expect form a car like this (a polite sedan), doesn`t have sport reacctions but it`s quite nice to drive, tends to understeer at the limit, but as i say, isn`t a performance orientated car, has some nice surprieces underneath, a trully wolf on sheep clothers. the design is conservative, looks very 90ish, but somehow dosent look bad, looks a bit timeless now..

Pros: the engine, handling and build quality

Cons: the transmision, fuel consumption (automatic)

Zoom Zoom — MAzda astina,nice V6 formation engine 2 L capacity,puts out a decent performance.The car is tight in the cornors and sticks nicely,goes nice in the turns,makes you wane speed up instead of slowing done. The car is fun to drive,nice torque that it pushes out. The clutch and petrol takes getting use to

Pros: Looks

Cons: Nose

Nice Shape Without Any Mods~ — Got to find the V6 model~ that's the real monster~ this one still powerful but with that kind of weight, a little bit waste of fuel~

Pros: Great looks

Cons: fuel consuming too much

Nothing Special... — This is quiet a nice car but nothing stands out. For a eleven year old car it is fine. But still nothing stands out with this car... Space wise it is not really a four door car, meaning that the seats in the back, i wouldn't want to be in the for a large amount of time. It drives like a 'Normal' Car, handles like a 'Normal' Car, and guess what it accelerates, yep you guessed it like a 'Normal' Car. Don't get me wrong nothing wrong with a normal car but there is nothing special about a 'Normal Car'

Pros: Looks pretty good for a eleven year old car with sporty sedan

Cons: Its a 'Normal' car.
