A comfortable ride with many convenient features and great storage capacity

It is very comfortable and has enough space, however not as much as other SUVs. It feels the same size as a 4 door sedan on the inside, just raised higher off the ground. The amount of trunk space is excellent and the back seats fold down to get even more bulky things inside. My only wish is that it had a seat memory button to make adjusting the driver's seat quick between driver A and driver B. I am now the only one driving it, so that shouldn't be a nuisance anymore. I love all other features, such as leather interior, moonroof, heated seats, button controls on steering wheel and touch screen radio. It's a reliable vehicle.

Don't buy it. Not worth the money. The company has misleading information in the large print. Do get gap insurance though.

The paint was bad from start. Damaged but they repaired the damage surfaced again. Warranty bad. They touted 100000 bumper to bumper. You think this is U.S. that means miles but when it comes up at 80000 with problem first they say yes covered then it's sorry yours is km. The back windows can't be open alone. There's a loud thrumming noise. No vanity lights over mirror or in glovebox. Lots of buttons on dash, radio area but they don't work. I thought we had nav and satellite radio, but no don't work. Very misleading. My transmission went at 80000. My brother's engine blew at about then too. Neither is covered.

It's reliable, affordable, and gets great gas mileage, while being able to tow and haul reasonable packages.

I love the amount of space and the fold-down seats; I can transport a lot in a relatively small vehicle. My primary complaint is that the factory-installed radio doesn't handle MP3s on memory sticks well; the shuffle algorithm is apparently hard-wired because if you start at the same track, and hit shuffle, you'll always get the same "random" tracks played in the exact same order. Nor can it "remember" where you were between turning the car off and turning it back on. Other standard car radios have these features and more, so I can only conclude that Mazda was working with a substandard supplier.
