I have had an excellent experience with my car. A couple months after I got it I was hit hard on the driver's side and I was not hurt. The car protected me like it was supposed to. I feel safe in it and very comfortable. People are always surprised when I tell them how old it is, and I owe the newness to the excellent paint quality by Mazda. Though it was rated average for reliability I have not had any major problems with my car, knock on wood.
