I am very pleased with my decision. I had a '93 MX-6 with the same engine (2.5 V-6) and it is terrific. Wasn't sure what to expect with the automatic but it provides good power. The interior layout is very good, I'm a big guy 6'3" 280 and have no problems. If it had the Honda nameplate it would've won every award, but I like Mazda because you can usually get a good deal and their build quality is good.
oscilating vents, roominess front and back, trunk space.
fog lights, heated seats, 6 speakers instead of 4.
