This has been a fairly reliable car. I had a few minor issues with the car not too long after I bought it. The battery went dead and the axles required replacing. Of course the car was also three years old when I bought it. The only gripes I have concern the seats and the air conditioning. The seats are horribly uncomfortable which make long trips very hard on my back. Also, the air conditioning has gone out three times. I live in Texas where we desperately need a/c during the Summer. I also found out that the car was flood damaged not too long after I got it. So, I do not think I would recommend Jay Marks Mazda to anyone. In any case, I would considering buying another Mazda if Mazda could produce a car that got better gas mileage. My next car will either be a Honda or Toyota because Japanese make the best cars!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
