  • Hi Guys

    I have a mazda eunos presso 1500cc - 1995
    Automatic transmission and Japanese import.

    Mine is silver and in superb condition - 40,000 miles only

    It looked as though it had come straight out of the show room.

    The only fault I found was a defective distributor lead which caused some panic at first and heavy fuel consumption for a while. Now that I have this fixed, it practically runs for ever on a full tank of petrol and goes like a little rocket.



  • yea the 1.5 is a great car! not dissing the 1.6 or anything!
    are all the 1.6's SOHC? im going to bore my 1.5 out t be 1.6 by throwing in pistons from the 1.6.

    anyway heres why i think the 1.5 rocks! ok this is my model and not all the 1.5 are the same spec but take a lookey!
