The interior was the major selling feature for me. Also, here in Canada, we get an unlimited mile warranty, so it's the years that are the basis for coverage. That was also the major deciding factor. No one else does that, so it's great for people like myself who put so many miles on their cars.
I am just about to crest 55000 kms (33,000 or so miles). Car still works well but I am running into some issues which I am sure others are tired of hearing about. My car has been to dealer over 13 times to try and diagnosis a few things. I've had my sway bar replaced, clock spring in the steering column replaced (the new one is starting to do the same high pitched squeak noise the original was doing) and no one can identify a noise in the front strut (but everyone hears it, which is important to note). Strut has also been replaced.
Overall, I'm not 100% happy with my purchase as my previous '16 Mazda 3 GT didn't have any issues for the 2 years I owned it so I was a bit disappointed when this new car started giving me trouble the minute it left the lot. I am hoping it's just because I bought the car so early in production.
I agree with the same characteristics as idrive listed. The car does seem like very good value, has oodles of power, is very nice looking, dependable and is the most comfortable highway car I've ever owned. I can't wait for the nice weather to return so I can get her washed up and ready for summer.
Enjoy your new ride!
