This is the second Mazda I have owned; but this one has been the best car I have ever had thus far.
I have had five cars in my life.
I have replaced brackes, had some suspension work done (tie rods etc); but having had it since it was brand new I find it stellar.
I don't off road with this; I drive on roads only.
I travel with it almost annually; and it is our primary car on weekends so I average about 14k a year.
I am very disappointed with the newer designs; if i wanted a Jeep I would buy a Jeep; not a Mazda look alike.
I am replacing the stereo this year by choice so I can keep driving this one for many more miles.
Most reliable I have ever had.
The windshield blower is not all that great as it never gets to the edge.
