This car is OK. It has a bunch of little problems. (keyless intry works some of the time, CD player's volume goes up when turned down, CD plays some of the time. CUp holder sucks. AC is loud as can be yet doesn't blow that much air. Dealerships don't want to fix things under warranty. They can't find anything until repeated trips are made. No loaner cars offered even for multiple day factor fixes. The plastic clips that hold panels on break randomly and just fall off. This from a guy who Meguiar's his car inside/out + engine. I should have bought that used Toy Avalon or new Honda civic.
intermittent peppiness, larger interior than honda civic, sound system is pretty good when you can get it to play at the desired volume.
fuel economy is a joke, I've never gotten the 26 mpg on the sticker and I baby it, better cup holder, better dealership training, better interior design and reliability, mazda should own up to mistakes and fix them, comfortable seats w/ adjustments that do something, keyless entry to work everytime
