It's a very long car and quite awkward to park as a result. I got the sports tourer as we have dogs and kids but the boot is quite low and actually quite small in comparison to the Vectra estate I had before. The engine is strong and the gearbox slick. It really does munch up the miles on the motorway with ease but can be quite uncomfortable because of the stiff suspension. Other than that I'm pleased with it.

No real problems ,door seals seem to be a weak point letting in wind noise and small amounts or water even after replacing,tyre noise even with good tyre brand. Very good on fuel if driven right,tax and insurance prices good,a bit heavy on the front tyres, service intervals good ,but I would not leave it as long to have the oil changed.

Hasn't missed a beat. starts first thing. stops and pulls away well has developed a noisy squeak from the passenger sun visor and road noise seems louder. Cheap main dealer servicing. michelin tyres are expensive though.

Very good, but less than six months old so would expect no trouble yet. Very happy with tax cost, diesel is about as expected. have recently gone from two to one car, so insurance is yet to be compared.

have had several vauxhalls and equally as many Mazdas but this model has so far given the best ride comfort ,performance and drive and the overall feeling of being built to a very high standard.

Overall I'm pleased but there are just too many blind spots created by pillars and rear window size . The model I have has no parking sensors

To much emphasis on style over function. Too blingy. Does not fit in with rest of range. Not up to AUDI/VW/SKODA QUALITY

Really pleased with the car. It has the most comfortable seats of any car I've ever owned in 27 years of motoring

So far nothing has gone wrong. I expected the higher fuel costs due to it being a perfomance engine.
