A new Mazda MX-5 owner had the unfortunate fate of crashing his car only a few minutes after getting it.
Miata Forum member SCSM and his wife took their brand new MX-5 Launch Edition from Tom Bush Mazda dealership, but shortly after a Ford F-150 rear ended them. Luckily, they got only minor injuries, but the vehicle itself suffered heavy damage.
“At around 4:00 PM or so, BAM. BAM, and our beautiful new LE was no more,” the owner explains. “We were shaken, Joanne took a ride with the EMT’s to the hospital and I was left dazed, amazed, stressed, and whatever emotion one could experience. I also quickly realized that we were both still alive and functioning, thank you up there!!!”
Surprisingly, a couple of days later he got a phone call from Mazda North America and was surprised to hear that a replacement car will be sent shortly.
“Then, yesterday afternoon, I received 2 calls from MNAO informing me that my name was on a replacement LE 6MT that is in transit and will dock in Jacksonville around August 15. On to Tom Bush soon after that.”
