Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
For what you get its fantastic value, climate control, 6 disk in dash multichanger, leather steering wheel and gear knob, the list goes on.
Fuel consumption is a bit high sometimes, but my first service cost £100 and I've had no problems with it.
On the road
In the dry its fantastic and the DSC can be turned off for a bit of fun, in the wet it tends to lose grip a bit, but altogether its fun to drive.
Quite quick of the mark, though first and second are a bit slow, once you hit third it really picks up. If you have more than two people in it though you start to feel a degradation in performance.
Living with it
One problem, an airbag sensor in the front has a problem, it's not watertight and it gives the airbag warning light now and then, Mazda will fix it under warranty so really no problems and Mazda have a great reputation for reliability.
Not to every ones taste, I love it and theres not a great deal of saloon versions on the road and the front end looks meaty.
There is enough adjustments to be made that can make it very comfortable. The suspension tends to be a bit too firm, over long distance though you arrive at your destination without any sore spots.
Security and Service
Thatcham 1 alarm with deadlocks as standard.
The dealer I bought from, Hodgson Mazda, are fantastic, nothings a problem for them and they are very easy to deal with.
Problems and Ownership
Problem with airbag sensor in front, but gets replaced under warranty with no problems.
