Comfort and stylish good looks along with a smooth and safe ride with minimum upkeep makes this a dream of a car. Handles like a quick sedan but has unequaled roominess in the trunk which allows me to pack it full of antiques and large canvases and my parent's wheelchairs. Wish the newer models had an equal amount of rear space. Forgot to mention - terrific gas mileage!
Did my research, waited for the '14 model, and bought it a month after its debut. It hasn't disappointed me since. Spacious inside w/ a large entrance fitted well for both my 80+ yrs old parents. With back seats down, can throw 2 bikes inside. Everything work well, supportive power driver seat w/ nice panaromic moonroof. Small display, but get used to it. Glad I waited for '14 vs '13 model. Mileage was surprising good w/ the new CVT trans. Love it!
i'm 88 yrs old. the car travels 60 miles hiway driving once a month at 70mph to ckeep engine clearded out
Great vehicle except for all of the recalls.
This car is the best car I have ever owned. It does not get good mileage in the city, but that is not what I bought this car for. It is our go to highway car. Love to take it to Mammoth to go skiing. It handles the curves better than any other car. You can go 75 around a curve that is marked 55 mph with no problem. Going up a upgrade, no problem. Pass cars like they are standing still. We get around 21 mph on the highway and that is not at 70mph.
I was driving an SRT8 Challenger when I bought one of these for my wife. After driving it 700 miles in a day, realized that I had no back pain, had really enjoyed my drive and got a fuel economy of 32.5 mpg! On cheap gas. i loved my power car but it was low, costly and loud even with the super stereo fitted it was nothing compared to the awsome Bose system in the Mazda. I switched and have enjoyed over 16,000 miles in it, and although small in size my 6 foot 6 inch son fits in without problem.
This is a nice vehicle. Good quality, great ride, good size for me. After that: reads only blackberry texts?? The UBS port has to be plugged in out everytime you change modes or stop. Your can't access your phonebook while the vehicle is moving even by voice commands. So you either have to stop or look at your phone to do this. Acura calls this a safety feature? When you access the phone, the voice prompt says the name of the first person in speed dial. Every time! Very irritating
