Purchased the car brand new. Everything went very well for first 3 and half years. Just oil changes and gas. At around 58k miles we started noticing a cut off or disconnect in the transmission shifting between 3rd and 4th gear. We finally took it to the dealer and we were advised that we need a new transmission. Did that, luckily we had purchased the extended Mazda warranty till 100k, which covered us 100%. Otherwise, the car so far is great.
Looks, sharp car.
It was a disappointment to see the transmission fail like this. We would have expected more for reliability. Car kept going though, it was just the unsmooth shift between 3rd and 4th gears.
