2007 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Purchased this car 6 years ago, car has 50,700 miles on it.
Overall it gets me from point A to point B, however I have had to replace brake cable, calipers, rotors and brakes as well as the rear and front supsension.
Apparently this is a not uncommon issue with the vehichle.
Car warranty should be better as well only 3 years 36K miles
Good sound system, manual transmission, heated seats for cold winter days
Better warranty offer, use better rotors/brake pads.
All issues you listed here are about things that need to be replaced regularly on any car, ever. If you drove the car too long before replacing the brake pads, which someone might do if they are not entirely aware what regular maintenance needs to occur on braking systems, it could screw up things like the rotors or the calipers.
