Practical price with all you need and comfortable as well.

Purchased this car used and thus far it has proven very reliable and have had no problems. It is a comfortable ride and has all the features I want. The negatives would be that the cabin is loud, as if the seals around the doors and windows are too loose, and the controls on the dash are not very intuitive, there are some things that just don't seem to make sense.

Love hate relationship with my car Mazda 2012.

My car has leather seats and it is really comfortable. The only downside is the gas consumption. Every week I put $40 of gas to fill the tank. It is has a backup camera that is very helpful when reversing. Another issue is my brakes after owning this car for about 4 years the brakes are really loud, I had it fixed before but the problem keeps recurring.

The car is shaped like a bullet and compact. But it has 3 row seats.

The car is spacious and comfortable. The starter or something else is acting up. The car is a blue/gray color. It has 3 row seats. No back up camera or side sensors. Leather interior. Compact car. Good gas mileage. Great family vehicle. Great working ac and heating. Plenty of room for family. Great car for beach trips and road trips.
