I've owned many cars in my 30 years of
driving. This car is the absolute best
in reliability. With 144,000 miles I
think this car will never die. I did all
of the maintenance myself which was
minor. Oil Changes, Spark Plugs, Brakes,
a rear axle seal went at 33K, rear air
shocks, alternator, battery, tires. This
car has towed my 2500lb trailer every
summer all over the northeast with no
problems. I was sorry to see that Mazda
decided to make it a front wheel drive
in recent years. I have never gotten
stuck in the snow even with just 2wd.
Rear Wheel drive, Rear side door opens
outward, Automatic load levelng,
Comfortable front seats.
Mazda already improved the front and
rear bumbers which were not very good at
first. The A/C is a little weak bit it
gets there after a while.
