Close to three years of ownership, and now with 100,650 miles recorded, the engine remains as sweet as it ever was. The car has 12 main dealer service stamps, and arguably it is this care that makes it drive so impressively. Clearly it has been looked after both before, and since I bought it from Mazda specialist. Acceleration is quite swift and more than adequate in most conditions, but it is the cornering potential that exceeds all expectations. The car is kart-like when out on country roads. I also have the electric roof lowered on even the coldest days, with the dash vents on a warm blow, and if necessary, the electrically heated seats, covering the chilliest of days. Generally I get between 35-45mpg, with fully comprehensive insurance less than £200pa. This quick little car has brought enjoyment back to being on the UK's poor roads.
