I purchased this car used with about 50,000 miles on it. After 2 years and 25,000 more miles, I had absolutely no issues with this car. I couldn't have asked for more for the money that I spent. Leather seats, in-dash CD changer, sunroof... even the stereo system was good. To top it off I averaged around 30 MPG with mixed driving (I thought it would do better but couldn't complain). Unfortunately, I was just rear-ended and the car was totaled. I am seriously considering buying another Mazda as I was very happy with this car.
Very reliable, leather seats, in-dash CD changer, cargo rack, cargo room.
Better gear ratios (the engine was at 3500+ RPM at freeway speeds). Engine noise was a bit high as well.
