Hi All,

My Mazda 3 2016 Sport Nav 2.0 is my first Japanese car ever (and I'm an oldie!) and I've had it since Nov last year.

Very little online/forum advice and help around in the UK so I'm glad I found this one :-)

What I like about my Mazda:

- comfort
- equipment level
- colour (Soul Red)
- style
- great economy from a 2.0

What's not so good

- paint chips so easily
- lack of choice when it comes to tyres
- engine could do with a little more "pep" ( but that would probably conflict with economy)

Having mainly been a blue-oval buyer, I'm glad I made the switch.

Phil

Hi Phil
Welcome to the group. I too, have a 2016 2.0l in soul red and agree with all your comments and like you this is my first Japanese Car and I'm thrilled to bits with it. In fact i haven't seen one I would swap it for.
