Best car ever
Alternator and radiator had to be replaced at about 100,000 miles. Everything else is still fine at 165,000 miles.
I changed the timing belt at 120,000 miles, but not because of a problem, just regular maintenance (and I pushed it much longer than manufacturer's recommendation).
This car has performed beyond any expectations. AC still works, had to be recharged once, and could maybe use a recharge again.
It handles great, does not use much oil unless pushed hard (80 mph or more) for long drives. No engine trouble or transmission trouble ever.
The car still looks good, paint held up great, and so did the upholstery. I plan to put another 100,000 miles on this Mazda.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
