Im looking into both to see which used car is best to buy NEED HELP and for best price

Hi Oni. Thanks for contacting us today. Generally speaking, Toyota has a better reliability reputation vs. Mazda. However, the key to purchasing any previously owned vehicle is routine maintenance and service. If a vehicle has been taken care of, it tends to last longer than one without on-time service completed. If you’re buying a used car, you might want to have a professional mechanic complete a pre-purchase inspection, to ensure you’re buying a car in good condition.
