Good looking, but definitely NOT reliable
Within a week of owning the car, the AC went out. Horrible timing, because it's the middle of the summer, and it's like 100 degrees outside!
Then on the way to the mechanic, the engine starts smoking. Nothing on the dashboard said anything was wrong with the engine. The temperature of the engine was normal. The mechanic said it could be due to the alternator. Now need a new alternator.
Both problems happened within 500 miles/1.5 weeks of owning the vehicle. Carfax had a clean history of the vehicle as well.
I don't know why all these problems started within just 1.5 weeks. I drove the car like how my grandma would drive. When we test drove it at the dealership, everything was fine. It was fine for a week before this all started...
The only thing this car has going for itself is that it looks good. Both inside and out. But Mazda and the dealership really let me down.
Not only is the car unreliable, the dealership is now avoiding my calls. WTF!?!
Can I return this car back to the dealership? I've only had it for 2 weeks now. It's just been sitting in the driveway and I'm now back to driving my parents car :( BTW I live in Illinois. Is there a buyers remorse law here? I gotta do some Google searching I guess.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
