Update to an older review. I know this car will go to 250k+.I love this car, At 150k I had to do the timing belt, when i got it done the guy said this isnt your first one is it? I said yeah... he said you should have had 2 done already. The true cost of ownership on this car is really low. All I have done is the timing belt, water pump, oil, tires, rotors, just basic needs of a car. I would recommend this car to anyone I have had great success with it and bought my wife a Mazda 3
Sporty car compared to everything else out there. Fun to drive. Great gas mileage I don't baby it and it still gets 29-32 city and 30-37 hwy. I have the 2.0 with 5 speed
Cup holders are in a bad spot, 6th gear would be nice for increased mileage. little more power, but the M3 has it with the same gas mileage.
