My wife and I are sold on Mazdas. She has a 2017 CX5 and I just purchased a 2018 3 Grand Touring with 6 speed manual. They are designed well, good workmanship, up to date electronics, and very reliable. The 6 speed manual is great fun, an easy and tight throw to the shifting and very responsive in every gear. On highway trip yesterday got 37.1 mpg.
