Favorite things Performance looks colour silver
Would i buy another if it stays reliable certainly
Any warnings Make sure you get a spare wheel. In my opinion no car should be sold without one !
Purchased with 9000 on the clock now 17000. 8000 pleasure miles.
Economy For the performance Great far better than the two 2.2 toyotas i had before
Driveability Always a pleasure !
Performance.For a 2.2 deisle auto of that size STUNNING ! Far better than the 2.2 Toyotas i had and equal to the 2.5 V6 petrol Mondeo and 2.3 supercharged mazda xedos 9 miller that i had previousley.
Equipment Everything you could want although mine has not got the saftey pack and i think you need it because it definatley has a blind spot on both sides.
Comfort. Oh Yes !
Practicality. For me it is the boot is large enough but i wish they had kept the hatchback like the mondeo for the extra height but it may have spoilt the looks.
Reliability. Only had it 6 months just one problem the turbo inlet pipe blew off meaning a recovery even with mazda assist ! Dealer said they had never had it happen before blamed a weak clip replaced with much bigger and stronger one the also made a complaint to mazda assist as this should have been a simple road side repair and not a recovery guess i was just lucky. WILL REVEIW AGAIN WHEN I HAVE HAD THE CAR LONGER.
Anything to note The infotainment screen could have been larger as it is on the facelift model although i think they should have blended it into the dash better as Toyota has on the new Avensis. On the Mazda as with Mercedes and the B M W it looks like a bit of an afterthought. SHAME. But still looks and is a great car overlooked by many.

performance: Acceptable
equiptment: All one needs is there (except heated windscreen)

The car has full main dealer service history, and has done less than 60k.
