I think alot of women like to sit up a bit. I think that is why compact SUV's are popular. Also color choice rates a much higher degree in importance with females so keep that in mind. Honestly I would have her try a few cars and see what is comfortable in and what she wants. Safer than recommending something she does not like later. Lots of great cars to choose from now.

Mazda recently started topping the charts in reliability, overtaking Toyota's #1 spot. Honda has long lagged several spots behind Toyota yet are still regarded as a holy grail of reliability.

So Mazda is in a unique position where its reputation and brand value hasn't caught up to reflect the quality of its current offerings, making for some great deals on the used market.

Helped my wife buy a Ď20 Mazda CX-5 GT last year. Itís a fantastic daily driver. The interior is more upscale than my momís CRV. The ride quality and NVH are top notch. Have nothing but good things to say about Mazda.

Shit. That's awesome! AND has a heads up display? That's a fantastic deal.

As read through the specs and saw the individual climate control, my instantly went to mazda's old school HVAC system with the oscillating front vents. Something so simple and everyone thought it was the coolest thing ever.

in my opinion the only negative thing about that car is the 2.5L 4 bangers fuel economy. By today's standards that thing is a guzzler. the new accord comes with a 1.5L turbo which is way more fuel efficient.

'19 Mazda 3 hatch manual or auto. I'd go for the premium pack.

After owning one it punches far above its weight. Better than a 3 series, A4, IS and def the Benz.

Mazda design language is better than all these brands as well. Prob the best looking cars on the road right now.

Ladies and Gents, one month later and we have her a car!

She ended up with a 2018 Infiniti Q50 3.0t AWD. Stoked for her. She's never had anything but Ford pick up trucks since she was 18, she's like a kid in a candy store with her first luxury-ish car. We picked her car up Tuesday, since then she calls me every time she learns something new about it.

She finalized all her search results down to 7 vehicles, all where Q50's and most of them where at the same lot. When she narrowed it down to the final two, one had light tan interior, the other black. The tan interior ride had ProAssist which was pretty bad ass, the black interior ride had AWD. Although she loved the ProAssist package, her kids would have destroyed the tan interior.

Thanks to all of you for the recommendations and playing along!

It has 38k on the clock and if I'm not mistaken she gave $24k for it.

Congrats! I don't know how the Infinity brand is doing as of late, but they have always made good looking cars.

Same here. From what I understand, they aren't doing well overall, but don't know much of the details. I had a G35 before I bought my E93 and enjoyed driving it. My problem was that I went from an IS350 gen2 to the G35 and it was a bit of downgrade. I will say, that driving her car has made me take a second look at the Q coupes though. For 300 hp, her car is damn quick in sport mode.
