  • Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    Getting older but still a child at heart, at least on occasions

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    My 86 year old father says it's the best car I've had and as good looking as any on the road but then he's suffering from dementia! Others probably think that I've too much money (or else spent it)

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes because it's a great all-rounder, except that I can't attach a tow bar

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Intend to keep MPS for many years and maybe never change

    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    February 2007

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Yes, it was a demonstrator with 230 miles and £6000 under list price

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    I've had Mazdas for years now with no problems so intended to buy a six TS2 but after driving the MPS my wife and I were hooked with its looks, accessories and ease of driving

    What was the dealer like?

    Good but made a mess of registering the car

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Brilliant. As stated before, it can doodle along with Sunday driver attitude or really fly. The faster it goes, the more stable it feels

    What's it like to park?

    A largish car but similar to all cars if you can drive! Mine has rear parking sensors and these spoil me now when I change to parking other cars.

  • Living with it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Mazdas like Toyotas are almost bomb proof and there's not even a tiny rattle. Yes, I smile and this is the first car for years that's made driving a joy. Thankfully, I've only been stopped once by the police but I believe that they really wanted to look at the car.

    What's most practical about your car?

    You can doodle around all day or really go when necessary - engine really sparkles, even in 6th gear, when pedal is pressed

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The Bose, six CD changer and electric seat memory
