Great car as a Japanese import and in good shape. Nice to drive
So far I have only used it for 1000 km, no major issues.
Only minor issue is the automatic unlock on one of the keys does not work (this is not due to the battery). Will probably get it fixed at the next service.
The Mazda dealer said that I would need to take the other spare key and the car to the dealership, in order to fix the non working key.
As a Japanese import, this car is in very good shape.
This is a very comfortable car. It looks great, there were no worries in getting a tow bar fitted. The seats have half leather, half fabric trim. The vehicle has 18 inch alloys. The rear windows have a tint, which is great to have (never had this in previous cars).
This car feels great to drive, and I'm looking forward to a long haul trip.
Only thing that I won't ever use is the mini disc player. It does have a standard CD player, and I did have to put a band expander in for the radio.
I will update this post after driving for a while.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
