pay attention to the cars in front of you man, the SUV is the frame bender in a rear ender. At least you didn't get hurt, count your blessings, it could have been worse.

lol that's a funny statement. I can't rely on mazda quality ever again....imagine driving one of these glorified minivans on even a dirt road? I'd give the cars 10 minutes before something broke or it got a CEL. There is a cx7 in my complex and the guy already wants to trade it in after owning it only about 6 months.

True, assfaces who mistake drifting with powersliding usually hit stationary objects and get taught a lesson physically and when they destroy their thrashed and beat 15 year old 240SX that they call a Sylvia that people like my buddy sold them for 10K.

Only an ass would try to slide a FWD car anyway.

Rear ending someone is not a good habit, be more alert next time.

Another reason why no one should buy SUV's except the CX7 and CX9

lol quite the assumption there. While not a 'glorified minivan' I've taken a base 90' protege down some northern dirt roads (with big 4x4 travel only signs posted at the entrance) during heavy rains. The only thing that I managed to knock loose was the exhaust system (which was still on but had been knocked off the hangers ;) from one too many airborn episodes. The car was covered in about an inch of mud/clay but never once got anywhere near stuck, and did get airborne at least twice ;)

either way, the cx's are not sold as offroad vehicles but as crossovers, so they will handle a 'dirt road' like any other vehicle, just fine.
