G'day all.

Will look at a CX-30 when they are released here.

Current drive is a 2016 BMW X1, just out of warranty - when things get expensive to repair - hence looking into a replacement.

We have a side by side carport and my wife has a CX-5 so I'm limited to the size (width) of vehicle I can have :)

Past looks have been the Subi XV and the CX-5, which was just a little too big for side by side comfort, so the CX-30 might just fit the bill.

Did you test drive a CX-30 as yet? Curious to hear your feedback especially coming from the vehicles mentioned.

Welcome!

Welcome to the forum! How has the CX-5 been treating you and your wife so far? The CX-30 should be a bit easier to maintain than a X1 which should help you.

Mazda has been known for German level of issues. So that might not be true. I'm hoping it won't!

True with the Mazda 3 and CX-5. Both owned by people I know.

Am I skeptical about the CX-30, slightly.

However, even with very reputable brands, issues happen. Toyota being one of them.

That's true, nothings ever guaranteed when you're getting a new car, regardless of the brand. What specifically are you hesitant about with the CX-30?

Reliability.
Mazda, of all Japanese automakers, is notorious for being the worst.

Along with Nissan.

Greetings all.

No, haven't driven a CX-30 as yet, and I haven't heard when they will be released here - early to mid next year? I will be interested in the head room, as I am 6 foot. I hope interior-wise it isn't just as someone speculated, "a CX-3 on stilts".

Re the CX-5: wife is holding off till MY20 stock hit the dealers. She is hoping they might have done something about the paint with the new MY (unlikely .... ) as she's worried about the rust-from- inside-out issue some have reported.

Slightly OT but a friend just picked up a MY20 Mazda 3 which he is very happy with, and says the MZD seems to be a vast improvement over the previous one i.e. it processes inputs faster. I guess that will make it to the CX-30.

Yes, with Bimmers when the 3 year warranty runs out, things get very expensive to repair :(

Welcome to the forum @AUS_Tin_Pusher, Glad to hear people are enjoying the new Mazda3. I really hope that the CX-30's interior is spacious enough to seat tall people too since I'm 6'1".
