2011 Mazda 2 Touring: Seeing Red
November 05, 2010
I drove home to Long Beach late last evening and was back in our Santa Monica office before dawn today, which means most of the driving I've done in the 2011 Mazda 2 Touring has been in the dark.
And at night, the instrument panel illuminates like a fiery blossom from hell. (A newspaper reporter I once knew tried to work that description into his stories as often as possible -- preferably as a quote from someone. I'm just carrying on the tradition.)
Seriously, though, between the ruby glow of the instrument panel and the glare of red tail lights in traffic, it was a hellish round trip.
