I love my 2007 Mazda 5 - see my post dating back to July 2007.
None of those opinions have changed.
However, a few months ago my a/c compressor failed - a very big deal in Southern Arizona.
My mechanic learned it was defective & Mazda acknowledged it and paid for a new one, which was appreciated.
Then my brake discs rusted - my mechanic explained this shouldn't happen in a 5 year old car. So-o-o-o-o, I guess this explains why this car was such a good buy!
It's given me pause about the Mazda brand & next time I may go back to my tried & true Honda, Nissan, or Toyota.
Defective AC compressors, poor quality brake discs.
