Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda 323 2003 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Does Mazda 323 use E10 fuel?
Mazda's advice is that you shouldn’t use E10 fuel in your 323. Continue to use regular unleaded.
Mazda 323 SP20 acceleration problem
It's not a problem we have heard about, but I suggest it's related to the throttle position sensor. Take it to an independent mechanic experienced in Mazdas and they should be able to fix it. You're right not to put up with it.
Replacing Astina with Mazda 2?
The Mazda2 is rated to tow 500kg unbraked or 900kg braked, which would seem sufficient to handle your box trailer, but it depends on the weight of the trailer. Other cars of a similar size are similarly rated, so if you want to tow more than the Mazda2 is rated for you would need a larger car.
Ask Smithy Xtra Mazda 323 revs and stalls
If the coil were faulty I would expect it to play up all the time, not just first thing in the morning. Get the transmission checked, particularly the fluid level.
