Wow almost sounded like you dealt with the same dealership (But I know you didn't ). Mazda's customer service experience?Funny you mention rust on the Mazda. That’s the reason the sedan we had was traded after 7 years. Just started to rust I n a hurry but they were famous for that. Funny thing is I went and had the car looked at. They said ummm yep it’s rusting...looked it all over, gave me the keys, said someone will make a decision if it’s warranty or not and call you so I left. Decided at this point time maybe time to trade. Got a new Civic and a month later the phone rang. Your new parts are in to fix the rust issue on the Mazda lol. Said good thing you told me you were gonna fix it.....oh wait you didn’t. Well it now belongs to Honda so call them. Told her she should get the body shop to communicate with the customer a little better. She wasn’t impressed with my suggestion
Nice .I owned 125 car .110 new and the rest second hand .I owned Corvette Camaro Tran am Road Runner and 15 mustang But nothing beat the MustangI have owned over 200 cars and have had a few
bads ones more than the average person.
Even some of the bad ones had some great stories
or adventures along the way.
This car was none of the above. I was convinced to sell
a truck I had to buy a good 2nd car that made sense.
Sold my truck and preceded to buy a low Km
1991 Volkwagon Passat, This was mid late 90's
Car was in great shape and low k's, bottom of car was
a litte rustier than I would have liked ( should have been a clue)
I paid $5500 cash and away we went. It looked good, drove nice,
4 doors, fairly well equipped, I thought I did well
Then it began, 2 weeks something broke, $800
Ok, 1 week later, $600, 10 day $900
and so it went for 6 months and close to $6000 later.
We determined the rustier bottom, meant it sat outside somewhere
in a bad spot and this did not help.
I found out after buying, VW Passats were more expensive to fix
than Mercedes I finnaly got tired ( fed up) and sold it.
Some may think, I fixed everything, might have been true
maybe next owner drove it for years LOL, but I had enough.
in 6 months I drove it less than 2 and spent more on repairs
than I did car
