Drag a wagon

2005 Mazda Tribute s AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
After being lied to about the invoice price which resulted in paying 26,500.00 we did not get the features we wanted. It took three weeks to get delivery because they claimed it arrived at the dealer with "slashes (keyed)" over the front panel. Then it had to have the windshield replaced because a rock hit it while driving it back to the dealership.by then we were no longer eligable for the $2,000.00 rebate. After receiving delivery, it still has a small dent in the chrome on the hood. It rides like a childs wagon being pulled down the street. It hits every imperfection in the road like a speed bump. It makes it impossible to try and make notes or write in the rear seat.
The poor ride out ways any pluses. The great sound system, is not. Cannot hear the full sound speakers. Same as their 1962 model, old and tired.
Interior is too "plastic" looking. Fix the suspension syestem for a smoother ride.Deliver the sound it claims. Rear doors do not open wide enough to access easy in and out for passengers. Simple items are over looked at mfg.
