if all my kids were graduated

this car has so much bang for the buck. If i didn't need room for a tuba with my son in the band, I would buy it in a heart beat

LOW QUALITY car everywhere except under the hood

Mazda really cut some serious corners on these. The paint is so obnoxiously thin that my rocker panels were speckled with chips at 800 miles. You absolutely have to get it wrapped or painted if you want it to be decent. At 15k miles now, the paint is trashed. The seats are horribly uncomfortable. The dash is hard, easily scratched plastic. No armrests on the doors (not really). Horrendous body roll. But it’s reliable. So there’s that.

Fun Car!!!

This car is a blast to drive and when the weather is nice outside just press a button and the power top automatically folds up and slides into a compartment behind the cockpit. Ergonomically excellent especially with the information/Nav display control dials at your fingertips behind the shifter. The Bose stereo is amazing in this car which also includes headrest speakers for music and communications.
