I bought this car when it had 213,600 miles on it, and it ran great! Even after driving it another 6,000 it was great. I read that this car often survives 280,000+ miles. When I was driving it, I felt like it had at least 100,000 miles less on it. I applaud the designers of this vehicle. Unlike some other car companies these days, Mazda designs their cars to last!
I really enjoyed the oscillating vents when there were two people in the car. As the vents pivoted in the front, everybody was comfotable. The A/C is also one of the coldest I've ever felt. Even if the car had been outside in 90 degree weather, I still had to to turn it off after 5 minutes.
