YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4

Poor reliability with constant problems on oil consumption and turbo. Well known issue with this car which Mazda are aware of.
2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Ours was an early build model and experienced many powertrain issues within the first eight months, with the car spending more than three weeks cumulatively sitting at the dealer waiting for various parts over the course of two months.
