Mazda 3 high milage reliablity

Vehicle
2008 Mazda Mazda3 New i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I have a 2.0 liter, 5 speed manual that I bought new in 2008, which I use for commuting to work in a rural area. 175000 miles now and still get 34-38 mpg (depends on the tires and season). The only part replaced was a new power steering pump was replaced as a recall. Other than that, changed tires every 40,000 miles (you have to have frequent tire rotations due to positive camber), oil changes every 5000 miles, coolant flush. I have not even changed sparkplugs, needed an alignment, or even needed to have the brake pads replaced.
Favorite Features
Is a very nice handling car. Good chassis.
Suggested Improvements
I guess we need to blame the goverment, but requiring TPS instead of mandating ABS is crazy.
