Reasonable handling, good comfort levels
One the front wheels have had to be balanced three times now (at my expense) as car veers to the right. Dealer assures me no other car has had this problem.
The front passenger window very often opens with a "clunk" which occasionally is so loud that I fear it will break
The metallic coating from the top of the gear knob has peeled away (at 18 months old 12,000 miles) Mazda claim no other car has had this problem and I have made excessive use of the gears.
Although a reasonable car in most cases, the niggles and poor dealer service means I'll have to consider seriously before I buy another Mazda, which is a shame because this is the fourth Mazda I have driven.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
