Anyone bought a new car or truck lately? I already have 4 cars in the driveway (Honda Element, Toyota FJ Cruiser and two Scions, all paid for) but came across the mazda cx3 and fell in love. Test drove one and thought it was awesome. Went home and figured out a price then called them and made an offer. They came back $750 above my offer and I turned it down. A week later they called me back and met my price so I bought it. Mazdas make some beautiful cars, the interior of this one is like a plane cockpit. Unfortunately you cant get the AWD in a manual but the transmission is so smooth and in sport mode with the shifter in the manual position you can pretend its a stick shift, lol. Picture was taken down the street fom my house.

Mazdas are nice, but no, I haven't bought a new car since 1982.
Inherited my Dad's '97 Ford Taurus wagon. A bit cosmetically worn, but it has only 86K miles. Good roof racks. (Tired of using soft racks) Will make a good surf vehicle.
Had a tribute, now got a cx5...both great. Cx5 gets 32 hwy & 26-28 city, it's great...but with a 4 yr old, a 5 mnth old & a 1yr old boxer I can feel a Honda Pilot is not too far off...I really don't wann la spend equal to 1/3 my mortgage on a fokin car though
Anyone drive a pilot? Review?

Zippy - props on the FJ. What year?
That's a nice looking whip. I was looking into those last year but went with a factory custom built jeep. I don't know if I'll ever drive anything but a wrangler again. I love it. It's my first manual too. Don't think I'm ever returning to an auto nowV__1559.jpg
Why you hoarding cars?
The fj is a 2007, its my main business truck. Runs great, hate the bad gas mileage though. Thats the main reason I still have the element, when i dont need tow power I drive that to save money.
