How many cars did you own before buying a Mazda? 3/6/RX-8...

My first car was a POS 85 Honda Accord. This thing didn't even have fuel injection. Went threw 1 transmission and 1 engine rebuild. My 2nd car was a 93 2dr ex Civic which was fun to fix up. Blew an engine with some NOS. After getting a engine swap and paying off the car this lady ran a stop light and T-bone my $hit. RIP. The 3rd car was another civic coupe. Sold it to get a Mazda6.

- Fiat 850 -73 (37hp ), owned before driving license
- Ford Escort 1.3L -83
- Honda Accord 2.0exi -88 (liked a lot!)
- Citroen Xsara -98

No Mazda yet, maybe my next car is Mazda3 if it feels good and
reseller gives a good offer from it (and pays enough from my old
car).

I don't own a car (for insurance purposes), but drove these cars since I got my license over 85% of the time - guess I can consider them "mine" then

1997-1999: 89 Tercel HB 4DR - NOT a chick magnet by any means - SOLD

1999-2001: 93 Civic HB 2 DR - Handles well and looked good, but was a POS (2 headgaskets, 1 cylinder head, 1 rad, 1 A/C) - SOLD

2001-2003: 01 Protege ES 4DR - The car that showed me what "Driving Fun" means - A KEEPER

June 2003-Now: 91 Maxima GXE 4DR - Since I drive a lot b/w school and work, we needed another car to keep the mileage low on the PRO, so I got myself this one.

Next car: 12-24mths from now - Mazda6GS 2.3L 5spd -or- Mazda3sedan/HB (undecided)

1992 Ford Crown Victoria - Donated

2003 Pontiac Sunfire - New

That's it for me!

If it's on this board, and it keeps changing, it's my fault.*

1 - 1989 Mazda 323 LX - RIP - Thanks to a lady who was cutting across the parking lot of Kmart and decided to plow into me while I was driving in the correct direction in the lane, so she bought me a new car. :-)

2 - 1991 Toyota Corolla - Donated to my lil' bro and he killed the transmission. Sold it to some Mexican's for $400.

3 - 1999 Mazda Protege LX - Still driving strong. Casper's getting sold though. Just FYI, never buy a white car. I don't care what people say about white not showing dirt, but it shows bird shit, bugs, tar, sap, and everything else that has decided to land on my car. Thank god for wax.

4? - 2004 Mazda3 or Mazda6 - Dreaming.

future 2004 Mazda3s Sedan owner

1999 Mazda Protege LX

former owner of 1989 Mazda 323 (R.I.P.)

2000 Pontiac Sunfire sedan.

The 115hp engine is driving me insane, going up hills is about all I can take from the car.

Hoping for a 2005 Mazda 3 sedan with sunroof!

115? Ouch. I'm glad Pontiac upped the horsepower for 2003.
