    I've been tire kicking for a while and I finally bit the bullet 2011 Mazda Speed3. 5k miles and 5k off list.

    I like it but I need to get used to the clutch.

    Just watch the tires and rotate them every oil change. They are super soft and the front ones get pretty chewed up by the aggressive suspension and of course the cars performance. We get a lot of customers upset that they are toast at 12K miles and they cost about $200 a tire.
    They are great cars for the money and are a blast to drive!

    Mazda styling is hot, nothing I don't like about the 3 and 5's. Great looking front and rears on 'em. Congrats looks fun!

    In driving it I think it is due to a over regulated computer map to extend motor life for people that just beat the snot out of it. In looking at avg mpg on display it shows 25 mpg. But to tell you the truth that is ok with me since that is what most of the others I was looking at are getting. I really like the 3. I'm tired of worrying about what if. I'm pretty sure it is called analysis paralysis.:crazy:
