I have agreed not to divulge details regarding my agreement with Mazda, but I believe it is safe to say that we have come to a reasonable agreement. As such, I sincerely hope I don't have any reason to write about any new incidents with my 2007 Mazda RX-8 GT. 🙂
I believed it helped to bring the Better Business Bureau into the mix, and if you are having problems with a car I recommend that you do the same. Having a third party witness the events and communications tends to make everyone more aware of their actions.
In the end, I did not have to engage a lawyer; so I am probably going to replace it with another RX-8. I had sworn that if Mazda made me 'fight' to return my car I would never buy from them again. While I feel that I was given unnecessary run-around when I first contacted them about repurchasing my car, once my case was passed along to someone with the power to make a decision things were resolved quickly and painlessly.
If all goes well, this will be my last post about my 2007 RX-8.
