This CX-30 is my first Mazda. I have always wanted one in the past, but could never find the ones at the used car dealer that I liked available. I'm talking some of the older models from before the days I could legally drive. Some of those 80s and early 90s models were neat.
'81 RX-7 (still have)
'98 Millenia S
'99 Protege (wife's that I helped buy used before we were married)
'06 RX-8 (wife's)
Quite a few others in our family who have Mazdas, pretty much all based on my recommendation. I have always loved how fun Mazdas are to drive, and for me the value for what you spend is far above anything else in the class.
2017 - purchased 2010 mazda 5 then got totaled by a careless driver in 2020 (gained $400 from insurance after deducted the car purchase price)
2020 - purchased 2015 mazda 5 sport with 70k miles on it. Hasn't put 1k miles for the past 4 months because of C-19.
