is your 929 M/T or A/T?

I have a friend that gave me a great deal on a 929. I wanted to check them out before I even considered, but all I've found is A/T :mad: 929s. Is it that they are all A/T, or are those the rejects?

Also, while I'm at it I might as well ask:
Are there any common problems with this car? I've heard they are built like a tank...

if you are talkin about the later models ie: 91 and newer (the new shape)
they are all auto, only made in auto, its called LUXURY!! mmmmmm, chicks luuv leather

ok, here are the probs i've had

A/C compressor blows up on all that i have seen, costs $1200AU new, or alternatively you can fit twin thermo fans on it instead $600AU approx.

front arms needed new oil filled bushes, $150AU for the pair, mazda was gonna charge me $250 each!

window motors are crap! these are a major fault, keep that in mind.

they are a tough car strength wise, they do weigh 1.7tonne. The engine is very good, transmission is ok from what i've heard, usually go at around 200 000 miles

about it
