Never ever buy Mazda, since I've bought this one all I've had is problems. My Mazda has DPF on it and it doesn't matter how many miles you do, the DPF filter will get clogged and will cause engine problems. I know a lot of people who have Mazdas and they all had problems.

Fuel hungry but expected that from a MPV. The spare parts are ok in price - it's just that I didn't expect to have to be buying as many!

I do not monitor mpg closely and expect some penalty for auto transmission and height of vehicle. Running costs seem reasonable.

Petrol consumption is very poor - but it is a 2 litre automatic and is frequently carrying a full load.

It's mostly used for commuting to school but also family holidays 600 to 900 miles each way with 5 adults plus luggage. The car's good to drive, quiet and comfortable, very practical and has never had a problem. There's no traction control and it's a little too easy to spin the front wheels in 1st gear without a bit of practice (petrol version). I also changed the fitted Dunlop tyres for Pirelli winter tyres which were great on a winter trip to Scotland and seem grippier, more comfortable and quieter than the Dunlops even in summer.

Amazed by its practicality - its also reliable & looks modern - could do with more power & gives 90% of sports car fun for 20% cost of 'real' sports car. It did goodwood & lemans tracks within two weeks without missing a beat - fantastic

Disappointing. Great for transporting 4 grandchildren under 6. Expensive to run - poor fuel economy, expensive tyres and expensive services. Road noise makes it almost impossible to hear the radio. Appalling in snow.

Just completed 87,000 miles this month. The car is totally reliable and never let us down. Serviced once a year being the only cost other than tyres. The front wear quicker but for our driving changed every 20,000 miles. Had problems with dangerous spit and worn Dunlop tyres early days but changed to Michelins and solved the problem. When I found the tyre problem I entered into a long diatribe with Mazda UK and found them in total denial and unsympathetic. The DPF filter is a pain if you only use the car for short journeys. I have found driving a few miles at 70 keeps the filter clean. As the general condition of the car is good and still reliable I see no reason to change and intend to continue to run this car for significantly more mileage until problems force a change.

Fuel consumption is not that bad as for such a big car. Spare parts are not expensive. But the engine in my car tends to burn oil, so I have to check it quite often and top it up.

Considering that driving to work in the rush hour, where a 5 mile journey can take up to an hour, fuel consumption is reasonable for a 2 litre petrol. On a "run" it is excellent, with up to 40mpg.
