    Wagon (Nissan, Toyota)

    Mazda BJ5W - Famila SW( Sports-Wagon), would be a decent choice too. Handles great.

    Mazda BJ5p - vvt engine - RS

    Do yourself a favor (Before taking your car to so-called Mazda experts, go to a Recon Spare Parts shop and get the part. Try to get the entire throttle body (Recon) and put everything back, It will cost you around 8K-10K for the throttle body with sensors. I believe it was VTCS valve or something. ZL-VE repair manual is a bitch to comprehend.

    Mazda bj5p RS special edition

    I am an owner of a BJ-5W RS not the 5P. This car was an upgrade from a Glanza S. So, my comparison is limited. IMO, this is one of most underrated great cars in today's market. Fast, comfortable and reliable. Parts are averagely priced, and definitely cheaper than new Toyotas. Few specialist/dealers in Pachikawatta stock most of the parts. The car only once broken down (the clutch cylinder gave up) on the road i.e 2 years ago (immediately after purchase), no any issues ever since.The manual did not have any gear box issues. Cannot comment about the Tiptronic as i haven't driven a single car. To resell : You will have to wait for the right candidate to show up.. may take time to resell.

    Mazda Bj5 Ecu Problem

    I too have a BJ5W car with ZL-VE SVT engine (manual transmission).I too faced the similar situation approximately six months back. Ran to few mechanics from whom i got false diagnosis, decided to do it on my own. After a few trial and error, found out that two out of four ignition coils were faulty. M***A asked 27k for a recon set. However, managed to find em brand new(genuine) from Panchi (D*h*n*y*k* ) for 15k. In my case, I suspect the cold weather during December, and parking the car under a broken roof gutter caused this, So, check your ignition coils as well. Just my 2 cents.

    Buying A Toyota Mark X 2007

    The OP perhaps had his eye on the car that is advertised on the QUICK site. . One must read this advert. Sure it has been posted by someone who has a very good sense of humor and high IQ
