iv never had anything but good experiance with my dealer, they send me free stuff, give me discounts on everything, and give me paperwork explaining what they did, exactly what it costs, and even offer to let me keep any part they replace. the 1 time they did pull a CEL code they told me the code, pulled it up in mazda's computer(not there dealership one) right in front of me, fixed the problem in more then a timly manor and now it works better then ever. what part of md are you in, and what part of va was your friend in, I go to browns fairfax mazda (one of mazda NA top 10 rated dealers) if you can, just bring it there. go with dave on the green team if you can
I am banned.
