I haven't had a single problem with this car. It runs like a champ and looks great. I have kept my car in excellent condition and I keep up with routine maintenece so it runs like it does. I love this car.
The paint job on the 05 Mazdas are unlike anything I've seen before. The matallic flake is amazing in the sun. The new ones just don't have that. It's quite a shame.
I just wish that Mazda would have made an iPod (aux) hookup and variable windshield wiper speeds standard in 2005. The FM transmitter is a bit hard to use with the static. The windshield wipers have 3 speeds. there needs to be an adjustable control between too slow and too fast.
