    The marketing fools at Holden and Ford do not understand the market. It is unbelievable that such hot country (read evaporation of fuel) with such big spaces (read high k’s covered per year) do not offer diesel versions of the Commodore or Falcon, especially in the Ute forms or for taxis. People don’t buy them because they are not offered. They have engine designs from their parent companies that would fit the bill.
    They deserve to go out of business.

    The strange thing about Mazda is Australia is one of the FEW markets in the world in which they sell well…

    I don’t know if I’d call our car market “interesting”. As one of the few RHD car markets in the world, we miss out on some great LHD-only models, mostly from the USA. For example, the Mercedes GLK isn’t available here. But I guess you always want what you can’t have.

    Here in Portugal they sold just 20 ( twenty ) cars in January… It’s unbeliavable. Down 87% from last year.
    I agree with you on the 5, it really is rather unfortunate looking ( it’s already receiving a small re styling btw, but those lines on the side are still there ) and am also hopeful for the CX5. A friend of mine who knows nothing about cars has already mentioned it to me, and if Mitsubishi can sell bucketloads of dull-as-dishwater ASXs then Mazda is sure to have a hit on their hands.

    Mazda is a great marque with excellent reliability. Their cars have charisma and are stylish. I´m very found of the mazda MX5; to me is the most attractive roadster nowdays. The 3 is a solid mid compact and the 6 a great executive. The 2 is cute and has good engines. Mazda have cars that last forever.

    you’re right. the only Mazda that i don’t like is the Mazda5, the old generation was better for me. Here in Italy Mazda sell so few cars for each model: 2, 3, 6… it’s a great pity because they are car so good. I think that with the new CX-5, at least in Italy, Mazda could sell so as good as Nissan do with his Crossover Qashqai and Juke

    Great to see Mazda doing well somewhere. I really don’t get why they don’t sell more in Europe, the 2 and the 6 are really great cars with great looks, and the 3 is a good drive and very reliable ( although the hatch is somewhat awkward i guess ).
