Do you not have the space or time or the know how to do it yourself? this alone would save you alot of money in the long wrong, and the job it's self is pretty easy, just takes some time...
I don't have the space, but that has never stopped me....I don't have much time, have one full time and two part time jobs.....I have the know how. I have been rebuilding 4 x 4's for years now. Currently have a '73 Scout II and a '62 Scout 80, built a ****** Jeep with small block chevy, etc. Seriously, my back hurts often, shoulder is strained.
My plan is to sell the '62 Scout to pay for the Mazda, and open up parking in the garage. After that, I can see doing the work myself. Might restore it to some degree, eventually replace the motor when needed.
I will never use a stealership, the smaller, established shops are preferrable. Don't get me started on the stealerships. Estimates of $700 to fix my wife's Jeep, I fixed it with a $3 can of throttle body cleaner, for example.
