Wow! Does This Car Ever Drive Well!

My only complaint is the lack of internal storage in the cabin. Other than that, I freaking love this car.

It just drives so well. I guess that's the #1 thing you want in a car. Great on ice and snow, which I have going on right now. I slipped a little bit on a patch of ice but the TCS kicked in and saved my bacon in a way my old Matrix wouldn't have.

The seats are comfy for me (5'8, 190lbs). Really comfy. And I have no issues with the view.

Tight in corners and sticks to the road like a billy goat.

Aye, she's got more computers than the Enterprise. Not found a switch for the deflector shields though - bloody Klingons.

I must say, it's an astonishing little car and I really like mine too.

I have too much fun in mine. A couple times I took a turn too fast, but a little gas and the computer wizardry dialed in the right amount of magic with the AWD and I was back on track. Too much fun.

I mean I can't imagine recommending it to people with kids. But my wife and I are, thankfully, d.i.n.k.s (winning at life!!!) and this car has all the practicality and versatility we need. With the rear seats up the rear cargo is small, for sure. Barely fits my groceries. But seats down my skis or 2 big suitcases or camping gear...no problem.

In the end it fits our lifestyle perfectly...and again...it just drives SO FREAKING WELL! Just a treat to bomb around in. They got everything from the steering to the tuning right. Well done, Mazda!

Yep I just drove in the snow today (we got around 5 inches today) and it was so much fun, no problems whatsoever. Its gonna be icy tomorrow though, I don't know how that's gonna be.

And for such a small car, it has excellent view!

In my opinion, the original tires are great , except when the temperature drops.
