Review
Owned previous vehicle(Oldsmobile)7 years, owned this vehicle only 6 months. Purchased because we were very happy with our 2003 Mazda Protege. Interior quality lacking relative to Protege. Plastic scuffs easily and rear seat fabric fraying after only 2,000 miles and 3 months. Fuel tank holds 14.5 gallons. Reads 3/4 full after 2 gallons used and 1/2 full after 5 gallons used. Road noise evident. Extremely small trunk relative to competition and other Mazda. As a conservative driver highway mpg is great at 35 mpg, but local mpg at times in low 20's. Audio system subpar relative to other Mazda. A/C does not blow very cold compared to older Mazda. Dealer service was terrible on issues.
Favorite Features
Fun to drive. Sharp to look at.
Suggested Improvements
Very small trunk. Increase size relative to competition. Not good for family travel. Road noise, you hear any grit and dirt on road. Audio system subpar. Rear speakers should be placed near rear window instead of on rear doors for better sound. Interior material quality lacking. Air conditioning.
