The best possible car.
July 11, 2018
The best car I've ever owned or driven (I've driven large variety of vehicles, including trucks, SUVS, compacts, vans and midsize.) Roomy first two rows, 3 row a bit tight for anyone tall (excellent for German shepherds, or kids.)
I've got the Grand Touring edition so it's got quite a few fancies. That's makes it better (sun roof, leather, seat warmers). It has the little outside extras too (spoiler, fog lights, and such.)
It has over 100k and runs like a dream. No major issues, only routine maintenance needed. Has a nice kick when you hit the gas (typical Mazda zoom zoom). I drive a ton (can vary from 40 miles/day to 100+/day) for work and it's great on gas.
I can fit the whole family inside (2 kids, 100lb shep, husband.) It's a 6 seater. Second and third row seats drop. I hauled wood, everything from Costco, and even a couch.
The one down side is when I hauled lots of adults (full grown) the car weighed down so the kick was gone and was much slower to build speed. You could feel the difference.
I LOVE this car.
