Ultron,
I'm here learning about the IA. I have already asked two dealers for quotes and am going to make my move to the IA this Spring. I have read that the car is very reliable. Reliability is my biggest reason for buying anything. For the most part can you tell me about the car's reliability? I just read that Mazda is now in the top 5 for reliable automobiles. I believe it was #4....Honda slipped to 8. Lexus and Toyota were 1 and 2. Anyway, what is your take on the car. I'm excited to get one. I weeded out the Mitsu Mirage Sedan, Honda Fit, and Hyundai Accent. let me know what you think. The best price I got so far is $15,200. That includes the $499 tax fee everyone pays, and destination charge.
thanks,
joe
I bought mine for 11 or 12 otd new something certified pre owned don't take the depreciation hit on a subcompact car they don't hold value well. Look at civics or corolla or mazda 3 if you want something like a ia my door moldings falling off and mine is a 16 and other various problems

mikemc422 So would I... that's bs. And no, you definitely shouldn't need to seafoam the car already, you shouldn't have to for a long long time. That's not something that should be done regularly, I've seen it eat away at engines from people using it too much. I just put it in my fathers truck at 499k for the first time, and it barely effected the way the truck runs, just raised the mpg from 4.2 up to 4.9 mpg and gave it a little more power, but didn't help with the rough idle at all. Only use it if the car isn't running right and it's an issue the seafoam should fix, other than that I'd avoid it as long as possible.

Ultron There is no reason in heck you should need to seafoam your car so early ?! If you're using regular fuel, octane rating that is recommended from the manufacturer, there should be no reason for any of that to happen. I would go on a serious rant in that place man

christianrenae So update: Dealership said the coil pack and fuel injector for cylinder #1 failed because of sludge build-up from bad fuel....

They goodwilled the coil pack and injector thankfully!!!

I'm struggling to understand how my car built up sludge already. I was going to seafoam it around 25k-30k miles but this is crazy early.

Ultron That's ridiculous. How can they expect you to pay for something that failed, which can't be caused by driver error btw, when you're vehicle has only 17.5 miles on it. I would demand they fixed it or go above them

mikemc422 The coil should actually be covered by warranty... Don't pay for a new one, if this dealer refuses to fix it under warranty I'd take it to another dealer if I were you...
