Decent car let down by manufacturer

Had this car from new and owned it for over 9 years with 110k miles before trading it in.

The good points of the car are as follows:-

1. Huge amount of space for both passengers and luggage
2. Decent fuel economy, averaging around the 48 mpg
3, Decent power and performance after having the ECU fixed
4. Bose stereo system
5. RVM very useful
6. Best front lights that I have had on any car
7. Never broke down and always started first time

bad points:-

1. Didn’t handle very well especially on tight bends
2. Condensation issues which were on the border of being dangerous as the car would only demist when car was moving.
3. Constant tracking issues with the front tyres wearing on the outer edges. Rears lasted 60k miles though
4. Mazda dealerships absolutely useless in fixing anything and poor quality when servicing at times. Power steering needed replacing and dealership didn’t properly secure the subframe. This in turn damaged the front lower suspension arms. Local garage had to remedy as I lost faith in Mazda.
5. DPF light eventually came on due to failed regeneration and decided to get rid off.
