Power is quite good and the engine revs quite good as well. Yes Review Date: 5th October, 2005 Faults: Alloys need refurbishing. Looks and feels newer than it is, still running smoothly and efficiently at 200k on the odo, no engine faults or breakdowns so far, comfortable driving, reliable, easy to drive and park Surprisingly large turning circle, a bit rough on the suspension but nothing major, dash area vibrates a lot on rougher roads Cheap to run, easy to park. The only problem we've had is the air intake hose had a tiny hole in it. Great style, with just the right details. Fairly easy to service for the most part.
They are made in Japan and are very well made, i change the oil my self and i almost never need to bring the car to mechanic, nothing ever goes wrong with these. Primary Use: Family transportation Its Worth The Money You Spend On It. Only had to replace the clutch once. The back seat fold down was a great feature. Noisy, very noisy, and high revs. My only 3 problems are: - No cup holders - No Cruise control and, - No Remote Boot hatch release. Slightly shorter but roomier, they offer comfort where the previous range concentrated on kerbside appeal.
No problems what so ever with the car, drives smooth very economical and reliable. Yeah you must have the import version; only 200 came from japan sold around the world, you're very lucky. Normally returns about 30mpg if driven normally it will suffer if driven enthusiastically though! Generally, the bane of compacts has been a lack of interior room, but interior spaciousness has long been the hallmark of the Protege line. For this reason Mazda have blown it with me. I thought I needed a small car, but believe me, I now wish I could go back and not have signed that contract, she has been an absolutely beautiful car to drive, an absolute dream, haven't had one problem with her.

It happen many times on the highway and during busy traffic in the city!!! Early pre-ford 1997 Models better equipped. General Comments: Best car I have owned in 30 years of driving different vehicles. With 17 inch tyres and exhaust it is still Very fuel efficient and easy to maintain. General Comments: This is my first car, but I'm not that innocent. Interior space, road performance and quality are all of a high standard. The latest 323s are more anonymous to look at, but more practical cars that iron out the rough dynamic edges of their predecessors. Not the most common car on the road, and certainly not the first thing that would spring to mind when thinking of buying a fast car.
After he made me wait forever he then basically threw me the keys and said see you later. General Comments: Fast comfortable small family car. Nobody seams to know what the problem is.

Both 4 door sedans with 5 speed manual transmission. This car was serviced throughout its life at a Mazda dealership, with the servicing cost very high, so I didn't expect these problems.

The car handles well, but has a slightly hard ride, but this is to be expected on a sport model.
The shifter isnt very good and the shift gates are very close together. I guess this guy was not getting any of the commission from the deal so he was not interested in me. Lacks cruise control which I only need for long trips. I have a standard bright rich red Mazda 323 Astina, but I've modified it; 17inch chrome rims, lowered, chrome tail lights, full body kit, neon lights exterior and interior. I regularly service the car at the main dealer which is a bit pricier than a local mechanic, but worth it in my opinion.

The only problem I find is that the indicators are on the wrong side on the right , which gets confusing.
