    I had run into this is real life during my 2yr sabbatical in TX. They were 1/2brother and sister, and had the same deadbeat dad. As happens in Catholicism, it takes a while to save up and get married. They had a couple kids and pregnant with #3 when they got married, and dead beat dad showed up as an invite from one side.

    Genetic abnormalities usually take at least a couple generations of inbreeding to manifest.

    What are the odds there is a lift kit involved. Take the lift kit off and he might get 2 miles a gallon more :D:D:D

    My dude, last few years they've been top of the heap in reliability, I think even beating Toyota and Honda in some cases. CX-5 is great value. Wish I could get a CX-50 4x4 here.
    Not sure which model you tried or where it came up short. They may be a bit behind on electrification however.

    It's not offroading. Subarus are notorious for being problematic and especially so after 100k miles whether you drive them off road or not. My mom had one and it started getting problems around 100k, I remember the head gasket being a notable issue. And my mom mostly just drove to the store and work. If Subaru had Honda/Toyota's reliability (And brought back the Baja), I'd easily buy one. Those things are amazing in nature. One particular experience in Kentucky going up a steep hill with giant holes like it was nothing stands out.

    Problem is, quite a few of my friends that have them have had issues with theirs.

    It was the Mazda 6

    Awful UX for the driver - seriously. I know you get used to it but figuring out how to do basic things was very frustrating.

    Gutless on the freeway.

    Then to top it all off, i went to tank up and it showed only half full, so i filled it till it was overflowing. Nope. So frustrating.

    Mazda owner here. They're killing the 6 in the US, basically because they're more focused on the SUVs and the CX5 offers great value (and they sell 10 times more), if you are not looking for race car performance. I own a CX30 which is fine and fun to drive in semi-auto mode but it's a little underwhelming as full auto. My wife owns a CX9 and that is really fun to drive and doesn't feel like a 3 row SUV at all. And off course they're killing it to go with the most robust CX90.

    I don't like the new setup with the displays and the climate controls are a little quirky plus the center screen display control takes a while to get used to, but once you do, it is better than a touch screen because you actually do everything with the dial in the center console. Other than that, the finishings are luxurious and they feel like more expensive cars, and so far we have had no reliability issues, but our previous CX9 started to act up at around 80k miles, so we got rid of it (my wife's, mine replaced an Altima that also started to become unreliable much earlier). And the gas incident? Really odd, never had that, and if anything my Altima used to show it was half full, only to plumet to 1/16 in 80 miles or so.

    The joke, of course, is that an online poll like this is “ruined” the moment a dumb******** like Lee posts it
