2012-reg Diesel, Owner for less than a year

Having previously had cx7 model, I found the car extremely reliable.no issues and care free driving over the previous three years. Early days as the car is less than two moths oldbut indications would suggest very economic. low tax. good mpg and do not expect any unusual maintenance costs.

I have only had the car about 3 months. reliability = excellent. I previously had a mazda 6 estate. I think my new car is more thirsty than the 6 estate though with the same size engine. road tax for the new car is ł30 vice ł145 or so for the 6.

As it's only 5 months old have had no issues with reliability. have been very impressed with the vehicle throughout. Find it very hard to get any where near the manufactures mpg figures for this model.

Issue with the high beam control camera which took several attempts to rectify, resulting in mazda replacing the camera unit. also an intermittent mis-fire. Nothing to comment on apart from fuel.

Difficult to answer as only had car 4 months. but no problems to date. Much better mpg than previous car (rav4) and servicing contract is reasonable.

As car is only 6 months old reliability is excellent, as expected. Have not had to replace parts as car is new, but fuel consumption is excellent.
