wouldn't recommend buying a Mazda

I bought a Mazda CX-30 in December 2021. It is rotting. The manufacturer and dealer do not want to replace the unit. I wouldn't recommend buying a Mazda, you'd be wasting your money.

This vehicle is sweet Have the Premium Turbo What is the issue with the windshield cracking near the heater/defrost vent on a 50 degree morning?

Beautiful, finely crafted vehicle.

Beautiful, finely crafted vehicle. Nothing else comes close to the quality and value for the money - or for even significantly more. Great fuel economy. I’m not a CUV guy ( This is my wife’s car ), but the ride and the handling are especially impressive for a “tall” vehicle. In a sea of clunky, uninspiring designs this vehicle is truly elegant. Very happy.
