    I'd get the TC because I prefer smaller cars.

    But if I had to haul other people around with any sort of regularity I'd rather have the Altima.

    If he's buying new there's no way you can get your hands on a V-6 Altima for the price of a TC.

    I didn't really like the Altima's interior. :hs: I like the Mazda 6 much better... but I guess that's just a matter of personal taste. :dunno:

    i test drove the mazda 3s and to get what i wanted in it, would have been 19k the same shit comes in the tC for 16.5k. and then i went on some mazda forums and the new 3's have a bunch of issues. back rotors being one of them

    I liked the 6 I drove :dunno: it was just the 4 cyl though. One of the two engines is a ford engine and not well liked by many, I thin the v6 but can't remember.
    I think you could get a 6 4cyl for less than a mazda 3 :o

    It's good that the rear seats fold down. The scion is a damn good car for what you get. I personally think the Altima is a bit overpriced, but my friend works for Nissan and can get me one just over invoice.

    What did you TC come out to after taxes?

    I've been looking at the 3 for my GF, my gripe is that the S starts at 17,1 and the i starts at 15,500 or there about, but the i comes with NOTHING, by the time you add power windows/locks, and A/C it's as much as the S. I think hte 3 is a bit overpriced :dunno:
