Re: Reliability Q's? Motor mount? Clutch?
2.0 and 2.3 has the same motor mount #3. So it's both problem but can be easily fixed and replaced.
I drive atx and it's pretty reliable. Just need flushing every 30k-40k though. Idk much about the manual though.
Another issue to look out for is the weird idle that occurs to everyone here. Mainly just clean the TB and MAF every time you change air filter. OEM Battery on Mazda usually die faster than any other car, another thing to look out for.
