I bought the 2.0 V6 Mazda 323 Astina for $4200, it broke down on me 4 hours from home in the middle of no where. The engine leaked oil so bad that it leaked into the alternator and blew it up. I tried to get it fixed at multiple mechanics, but the all-aluminium engine seemed to scare them for some reason and it was never fixed. Eventually the head gasket blew and i traded it for another car.
It had power everything, including a power sunroof, two airbags, abs, it was great for the money, but go for the 1.6L 4-cylinder like my grandfather has, much better engine and won’t do you wrong.
