    All I can say is WOW!! :cool:


    What a hell of a fun drive it was from the dealership all around town. The car handles fantastically... its revvy... and its comfortable as hell! I cant believe I got this thing for 16k. It has everything except navigation, HID's or leather. Everything else, I got ( moonroof, abs, 6 cd indash changer, etc). I am totally stoaked :bigthumb:



    Driving Impression: Like i said, its revvy. All the power is 4k and above. On the interstate, she just wants to go. I found myself doing 100mph on accident several times.. and NOT EVEN KNOWING!!!! She's that stable!!! :cool:


    Handeling: While i am spoiled driving my M3, I am EXTREMELY impressed with this car. It took a nice sharp turn to avoid a piece of tire going 60mph in the middle of the road, and didnt even give me any impression of understeer/oversteer. Very clamped down to the ground, no questions asked


    Interior: WOW. Just go sit in one. You'll love it.

    I want to get either a 6 sedan or hatchback, but I heard the gas mileage for the 3/6 series is shit. :dunno:

    Did you drive it enough to get a feel for the gas mileage?

    I put 400 miles on it today driving from jackson mississippi to dallas texas.


    I filled up once in jackson... didnt have to fill up again until I got to the outskirts of dallas.

    I think it was at like 370miles on a full tank


    The sticker says 35mpg hwy/ 25mpg city

    :werd: I'm seriously thinking of one of those in about a year and a half too---let them get the bugs out of the design.
     
  14. why did you get the wagon?

    i think the sedan looks much better

    I sat in one a while back, they did a great job on the design. One of the better looking cars on the outside as well. Seems like fantastic value for the money.

    The only thing not going for it is that it's not offered as a 3-door hatch... we need a modern CRXish thing.

    they are the best cars in the compact category for the price...rumor has it there'll be an AWD turbocharged version out...because the 3 already has the space for an AWD drivetrain

    Very nice! If they made a turbo/ AWD version, I'd buy one tomorrow.
    Congrats and enjoy it :)

    That'd be tempting... but really, with the WRX and EVO and SRT-4 and Focus SVT and Cobalt SS and the previous Protege Mazdaspeed, they'd be fools to just sit there and do nothing.

    it'll probably be called a Mazdaspeed 3 ...or something along those lines...and my guess is it'll come out in a year to get more people into the dealership. And dont quote me on this...but I think I read that if they do bring it over they were planning to price it at around 22K
