Mechanically very reliable
Rear window washer motor seized (My daughter has a Escape and same thing happened)
Front left and right rear door mechanisms broke. Had to order parts from Mazda. Car was unusable for a week. (Again same thing happened to left rear on daughters Escape)
Radio sometimes shows strange looking hieroglyphic type symbols (but it still plays fine)
Rides very nice and is very comfortable.
Feels larger then it really is.
Interior feels too "plasticy"
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
