    Ownership Verified: 2013 Mazda3i Touring Hatchback

    So I am a terrible cat, but I figured that I'd post an update since originally people were wondering about the long-term reliability and usability of the SkyActiv Mazdas when I first posted the car. I've had the car for about 2 years now, and it's been dead reliable every single time. This...

    Thanks! I'm pretty happy with the job and the car, especially since for what the job is, the job pays reasonably well for the area. And it's mineeeee. Sorry it took a while to get back, between work and the time that I have after work and sleep I just don't have a ton of time it seems like. In...

    Ooh busy dealing with work stuff. Yes, I did get this car for a pretty reasonable price compared to what it was and it was brand new, which is why I also got it. Normally the cost of a Mazda3 with the package it has is around $21k, I got it for less than that (around $18k, which isn't a total...

    Yeah, working with car people is pretty great I think because I can talk about cars while on breaks with coworkers. The majority of my coworkers basically have different types of interests that range from: video games, cars, actual table top games, phones, and technology. Really, it's quite nice...

    Merry Christmas to Everyone!

    Merry Christmas to everyone! (And happy Wednesday to Blayde, haha.) I'll be working until I get a chance to escape and take the rest of the day off for Christmas, like I did today.

    narf: Yeah it may just be an American thing with the Panic button. Not really sure, I'd just hit the lock button to be sure. My Grandmother's Forester key doesn't have a specific panic button, but if you hit the lock button 3 times I believe it goes off as such. On the 3, if you press the lock...

    The ! is the panic button. Basically, if you see someone at your car or you lose it in a parking lot or something you can hold that and your car's horn goes off and all the lights flash. Yeah I agree about the taillight one being a bit lame looking. There isn't really much I can do about that...

    The only experience I had with four wheel disc breaks are from my Grandmother's Forester. That is a lot heavier than the Mazda3, but it is actually very nice. It stops very promptly, unlike the Mirage where it feels like I'm really working to get it to stop sometimes. I had the brakes checked...

    Hi guys! Mooglebunny here, it's been quite a long year or two for me and a lot of cool things have happened. I moved a couple of times, graduated from college, landed a $15/hour job with benefits and paid holidays, bought a new cell phone which is a Galaxy Note 2 (which I took these pictures...

    Ownership Verified: The car nobody's been waiting for.

    Hi everyone! I know it's been a while, but I thought I should update about this car since some awesome stuff has happened in the last year (not related to the car necessarily)! Mirage is at 206,8xx miles! It's still trucking along like nobody's business, but it still has the small leak from...

    Ah thanks Rick! I saw the tale of your old SHO, sorry to hear that. :( But at least you weren't seriously injured. Quite a lot has happened between this whole time for me, and yet nothing is really all that different. Just figured that I'd just post a nice little hello to everyone, since I'm...

    Wow, it's Final Gear. Haven't said hi in a while. Been so busy finishing school and getting a full time job and stuff. Looks like all has been pretty much the same as before. :)
