Talking 6 months and counting till the reno is GONE!

Thank ****ing god I hate the car. Wish we would of never gotten it. It's been nothing but trouble pretty much since we got it. So in about 6 months we will be trading it in on a Mazda3 more then likely. If you are wondering why we are waiting. My fiancee is starting her new job in early july and will be making about 200ish more a month and I should be getting a better job within the next few months. So we are going to pay it down a little more and get a downpayment for the new car(used not brand new). I've already driven one and loved it. Only complaint is that its FWD, but im not to worried about that. Goal is to find one with these options.

2.3 I4 156hp 5spd manual gets 26/34 city/hwy
sunroof(not a must, but would be nice)
power everything

Question is do I want the 4door or the 5door hatch. Which do you like better?



Leaning towards the 4door, but I kinda like the 5door. Another thing that sold me on the car is the NICE interior. Makes you feel like you are in something that cost twice what it does.

mazda 3s are nice... I prefer the 6s' v6/manual trans.... of course the mazdaspeed 3 would be nice also...

Yeah just a DD. I'd love a speed3, but not looking to pay 23k on a new car. Given for the performance it's a good price. Now if only they offered it in AWD then it would content with the sti/evo. I do like the 6's, but for some reason the 3's just seem nicer.

Mustang is not 100% ruled out however me and my fiancee do plan on starting a family in the next couple of years and a mustang wouldn't work.

All I know the passenger will get a nice close up of the airbad message on the sun visor lol. It wont be that bad once the kid is in one of the seats that sit up, but the lay down kind does not work lol. Btw my friend that was in the passenger seat is only 5'5" if that gives you an idea of how close he was lol

****en word!

theyre nice as hell. theyre no evo/sti in terms of performance, but better than most cars out there. 2.3L I4 turbo AWD. motor doesnt like much more boost than its already at but for a DD itll be enough to get the job done.

In Car and Driver IIRC, it beat its 25k Imprezza counterpart, and 3 other cars(VW was one of them). The Mazda was the best bang for your buck in the 25k "sport cars" This is just a week or two old issue too. But if you want a 25k Mazda to compete with a 40k Imprezza, then you are crazy.

Re: 6 months and counting till the reno is GONE!

Have you looked into the VW TurboDiesels? You can get one with low miles for around 20k and they have some spunk. Intake/exhaust/tune and they'll keep up with a GT and still get 40mpg.

The only reason they are so cheap is ppl in the US are scared of diesels. My friend's dad has one with upgraded turbo and a few other things and it's pretty damn quick.

I wouldn't mind one personally. However we are looking to spend under 15k. We can get an almost loaded 05/06 for 15k or less. Also this will just be a DD aventually i'll probably look for a 5.0 for the performance.

nah, i think its because people in the US tend to incorporate diesels with hauling **** and big rigs, big trucks, etc. not little cars.

Agreed. My sister in law has a TDI Passat. She can get from to Chicago and back in less than 3 tanks of gas, that's 55+ mph in a good sized vehicle. I want one but not for the price.
