Comfortable and reliable, worth considering.

Great driving car, comfortable for long trips, reliable and decent fuel mileage, has had only moderate maintenance needs and meets my needs well; for being 13+ years old, it runs well, looks good, gets me where I want to go; insurance is reasonable, and it has a good track record for reliability and endurance, I drive it short distances to work each day and also for longer trips between 1 hour and 3 hours without any issues, maintenance costs are reasonable and parts are available, I honestly would buy another Mazda again because of my experience with this car, I have looked at newer Mazda 6's as well as the SUV options from Mazda. I like the Mazda dealership where I have gone for maintenance - very user friendly. I also like the size of the car. Big enough for four people to travel comfortably, can fit five if necessary yet small enough to handle well in traffic. Is fairly quiet especially with good tires. Lots of tire options. Lots of storage areas in the car which comes in handy.

Dependable & very gas modern.

It is a good car that is very good on the gas economy. It has power windows, leather seats, a very decent factory radio with CD player and other features. The trunk is huge. It has been a great vehicle. I'll throw in extra: I needed a tune up that was way overdue; and that is my fault. But even though, it had some miss going on, it stayed dependable. And, after I invested in a tune-up that I caused, with not service in due time, was plugs and wires, core pack that plug wires hook into. And it ran like charm all over. So, I'd definitely recommend the Mazda.

Super reliable commuter car for cheap!

I love my Mazda! I bought it used outright from a friend with 132k miles and in a year and a half am at 170k miles. Super reliable! I drive like a crazy person, and not once has my car broken down on me! In almost 40k miles of hard driving, all I have paid for is basic upkeep (tires, brakes, oil change, battery, etc). Loads of trunk space, and she drives very smooth for me. Super reliable car and a Mazda really can make it to 300k miles no problem if you keep up on the maintenance. I would definitely recommend! Plus great on gas mileage.
