    2008 Mazda Tribute Hybrid

    Hybrid warranty and repair not available at Ford

    Pros: 32 mpg

    Cons: A/C demands a lot of gas to run

    I bought the hybrid Tribute in the Mazda limited production program in 2008 in CA. Now, Ford does not honor its commitment to Mazda for hybrid repairs, especially outside CA. I was stranded in Ft Lauderdale because no Ford dealer would use its budget to diagnose and repair the defective hybrid power train part. In fact, I was told repeatedly by Mazda and Ford that no such car existed. I bought with the assurance that Ford would provide the hybrid repairs nationally using the Ford Escape hybrid techs. This car is a lemon and never should have been sold. I do not trust Ford anymore and would never buy a hybrid from them.

    2004 Mazda RX-8

    Great car

    Pros: Body style

    Cons: No low end tourqe

    Good economic sports car. Great body style and interior design. Rotary motor provides good high end speed but limited tourqe in low rpm.

    2010 Mazda CX-7

    Sharp and reliable

    Pros: smooth power delivery

    Cons: recommended to use premium fuel

    Nice curb appeal; seems to have the Mazda reliability I have become accustomed to in my previous 3 Mazdas: the turbo 4 engine performs well.

    2005 Mazda MAZDA6

    Lots of fun in a 4 door sedan

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: back seat room...

    I really like my 05 Mazda 6, it's quite peppy even though acceleration is a bit harsh and the 6 speed auto transmission is great even though I didn’t like it at first but now I’m a convert. Braking and handling are very good for a car this size, but it is a front wheel drive and you can only do so much with FWD. My only complaint would be a little more interior room, my boys are now in their teens and getting tall enough to be a bit cramped in the back seat…

    2005 Mazda RX-8

    Riding on Rails

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Needs more power

    Met the wife's 'family car' criteria of 4+ seats and 4 doors. Handles every situation with poise and conviction. A bit underpowered for the class, but where others get straight line power the RX8 more than makes up for it in the handling department. It would be nice if 6th gear was at a better ratio to help out with highway milage rating. Incredibly quiet considering the 9,000 RPM redline.

    2010 Mazda MAZDA3

    IT'S AN EXTENTION OF ME

    Pros: MANUAL TRANS

    Cons: NOTHING AT THIS TIME

    BOUGHT A MAZDASPEED3 WITH A MANUAL TRANS AND ITS EVERY THING I HOPED FOR. I ENJOY SHIFTING SMOOTHLY EVEN THOUGH IT IS A CHALLENGE. I HAVE CARS WITH AUTO TRANS AND THEY TAKE YOU TO A TO B, BUT ARE NOT FUN OR ENGAGING. IM 75YRS OLD AND DO NOT GO FAST BUT ENJOY DRIVING THIS CAR.
