1997 Mazda Xedos 9 2.5i V6 petrol
Nothing at all.
The Xedos 9 is clearly one of the nicest and underated cars on the road. I have had no problems with my car and covered 40K miles in a year and a half. Great and highly recommended car. Low speed performance is a bit sluggish, my one and only negative point.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Unlike some reviewers I have not experienced the reported sluggishness at low speeds. I find the car effortless and responsive to drive and it is certainly one of the best looking cars on the road. Very comfortable and roomy. I do not have long legs so the comments about lack of room on the front passenger side do not affect me. If there is one thing I find annoying, it is the tendency to ground when negotiating speed bumps and I try to avoid these wherever possible. The stitching on the rear seat leather has perished and is awaiting repair, also the walnut trim on the console has cracked and lifted in the recent extreme heat - but these really are very tiny niggles against what by any standards is a really great car - enjoyable to drive and a stunning looker. It is a shame the current Mazda range does not feature this silky smooth 2.5V6 engine.
