We've owned this car for 13 months and have put 30,000 miles on it with no mechanical problems or breakdowns.
We bought this car because it was larger, better equipped, and lower in price than a Ford Edge.
Great performance, comfortable, decent MPG.
The only annoying thing is the keyless entry/ignition system.
The remotes occasionally will not work. The local dealer replaced the remote batteries one time, but says there is no problem.
Still have the problem every couple weeks.
Love the car, but the dealer service department is condescending and blows off any mentions of a problem.
Don't know if that is a Mazda thing or just this dealer.
3rd row seating is roomy, and cargo area is large when not using 3rd row.
Get rid of the keyless entry/ignition or make it work 100% of the time.
It's very annoying to be unable to get into your car, or once inside having problems unlocking the ignition.
