"This is my first new car great handling never had any problems with it except for the front seat had horrible squeak but mazda fixed it right away and had me on my way. just wish the 4cyl had more pep to it, it does very good just as powerfull as the v6 2.5 leader in my old 626 but sometimes its lacking on back roads with the auto shifter."
"Detroit-Toronto cruise set at 75 mph burned 7 gallons and make 215 miles. Do the math 30 mpg. Great, great, great...
From Toronto to Detroit 2.5 hours throught the dens fog vehicle performed great. For the mid size sedan it has best styling mixed with great performance. Nice experiance in winter, too. Set of new tires recomended for winter driving (goodyear Eagle F1-all season)."
"This is the best all-wheel drive sport compact on the market. Although larger than the Evo IX or the Subaru STI it is still a fun car to drive. I test drove every sport compact on the market, this was def. the best one out there and for a price less than the STI and Evo. It is not as quick as the other 2 but at $3,000 less than those you can add just a few performance parts ( catback daul exhaust and MazdaSpeeds CAI) it will put as as much power as the 2 before and hang with them. The 0-60 times on this car are way off from MotorTrend before the mods i could do 0-60 in 5.7 seconds and i am no way a professional driver. With the two previously mention add ons i am now down in EVO STI territory with 0-60 nin right at 5.3 seconds. Would recommend to anyone that is wanting a sporty all-wheel drive car with out the boy racer looks and all the performance!!!"
