It's a slightly used 08 Mazda 3 S Sport

I think it will be at least next summer before I can buy something for the trails

Looks like a nice little ride, I have heard nothing but good things about them. They are suppose to be built on the Volvo/Euro Focus Chassis so you should be in good shape.

sweet.........should be a good ride for you

I payed my truck off a couple weeks ago and have been looking at cars but I can't do it..........I can't stand being that low to the ground.........just not comfortable.

I am thinking of buying a older toy pickup for a DD.........mileage wont be any better but will save wear and tear and miles on my Tacoma (plus keep it out of the salt)

I haven't installed the "zoom zoom" sticker that came with it but I gotta say those commercials are no bs, this thing just begs to be driven hard

Yeah, if I had to get a small car, I'd be torn between a Mazda and a Mitsubishi. Both seem to make really fun to drive cars that are very performance driven for the price. Sometimes I wish that I never got rid of my Eagle Talon Tsi AWD (Basically a Mitsubishi Eclipse). That was a really fun car to drive, although as stated before, it took alot of getting used to being so low to the ground.

I'd probably go with an older Lancer EVO, although it would kinda' defeat the purpose of getting a small car....gas milage would go right out the window.....LOL

Looks sharp. I love the blue. But you know, its not 4wd.

I know what you mean. Everytime I have to rent a car for work, I get a mazda 6. Those just love to be driven hard.

ugly's ok

I agree...I really like the color, and it'll be a nice D/D but we could always count on Terry to pull a wheelstand and blow a CV and make an outing interesting :D
