In their own words

Several design faults but all problems exacerbated by attitude of dealers and Mazda UK. Apparently we shouldn't be surprised if the battery is flat after 1 week of not using the car and are recommended to buy a solar charger to sit in the windscreen. After 1 year it was discovered that a cruise control software fault drains the battery when the car is left standing. We are now told that the drivers footwell floods and the boot because it must have been parked under a tree. We expect the same problem each year and teh interior must be removed to correct it £600+ each time! After repair dealership didn't re-fit boot compartment correctly. I will never buy another Mazda
