>tfw just signed off on an ND
>tfw even though it's better overall than every previous generation, the only reason you bought it over a used one is because you couldn't help but be inspired by the amount of engineering, thought, work, heart and soul that went into bringing it back to it's pure 90's sisters
>tfw absolutely head over heels for her and the future of Mazda
>tfw gonna keep her forever till the day you die
They deserved every single penny I spent on her. I really hope Mazda continues to grow and brings us better and more powerful versions of this same type of design philosophy in the future.
>his car was built outside of america with parts imported from china
roflmao, by supporting "american companies' you are also supporting the theft of millions upon millions of tax dollars, dealing a fatal blow to the welfare of your nation as a whole.
Honestly man, I would buy an American car
But none are light enough for me. My goal/dream car was a 2000lb Lotus. Mazda is the only company making cars that even come close to that weight and analog level of handling.
Maybe one day we will get a lightweight Foxbody, who knows
Accord coupes suck because the accord is a great sedan. The coupe version is not any sportier. It lacks any sporty features a sports car has. And it's missing rear doors a proper sedan has. Get a V6 Sedan. Looks are w/e, it's an Accord btw
I bought a Chevy Cobalt in automatic because:
1. I had no interest in cars 4 years ago
2. I thought buying a 3 year old car was a good idea 4 years ago
3. I felt satisfied with going from A--->B with no excitement 4 years ago
There is a nearby dealer with nearly the exact same car in year/model/trim/mileage except it's a sedan and a manual. I'll see if I can swap cars with them until I'm fully independant and can get something I want.
What do I want? Not sure. Evo, Miata, Toybaru, SN-95, something like that.
>I really hope Mazda continues to grow and brings us better and more powerful versions of this same type of design philosophy in the future
This. Not trying to shill for Mazda here but they made/make some of the most driver focused sports cars. One of the last few car company's that I have any hope for.
>Was the cheapest least fucked one in the area
>most important thing previous only owner was a mechanic and only had work done by decent shops in syd
>was almost immaculate
>never saw a car so clean/well garaged
Literally the thing was detailed and smelled looked like new when i got it
was only 4grand had 200k ausmilage
Mazda and Ford are really the only 2 automakers I'm interested in supporting right now. Everyone else is getting worse and worse with each passing year and at a rapid pace. They're probably going to be the last 2 high-volume companies providing manual transmissions and driver cars.
That's weird I could swear Mazda in the 90's was making Fords their rangers for them under the name b4000.
That probably the only time a major American auto maker has had a massive deal with an Asian or European auto maker right.
Should have waited a little longer...
I see a lot of miatas posted on here. Where is the fuel relay on my 95 miata? I did not see a qtddot.
It's the same car except better looking, a factory turbocharged motor and more storage space.
Do you not like torque??
>why did you buy your car o?
I really wanted/needed could afford another mx5
I absolutely loved my NC1 until the day it died
I couldnt justify another NA or NB. I have a NA in storage; there were no decent MSMs in the area
my car was absolutely babied by an elderly couple for 45k and still smelled new when i bought it
hope you love the ND, OP. i'll be getting one once they start saturating the used market in a few years
I traded for my current car because I needed a highway driver and the wheel bearings on my previous car were so fucked it was causing me to burn through a set of tires every month. Traded down to a car half it's value, but those are the hits you have to take when you don't have a dime to your name.
>Still doesn't handle as well as the Miata
>Powerplant will be unreliable Fiat garbage
>Front end is way less aerodynamic
It will still be inferior. What part of Mazda is better at engineering performance from this car do you not understand? A few extra horses doesn't mean anything if the powerplant is shit (which it will be) in the first place
>Miata engines have always been terrible.
pfffff- HAHAHAHAHAH!!! Good one anon.
>Abarth engines don't have any issues
>I had what I though turbo problems. I would not make boost about 1/4-1/2 throttle, which NEVER happened before. Now there is one cylinder knocking. I don't know if it is a spark plug or injector or what...GREAT. I am going to call the dealer tomorrow and have my car towed to the dealer hopefully monday or tuesday
>not make boost
Fixed It Again Today
>learned to drive in the '94 and the '05 but the 94 had 2 dead cylinders (still passed Ca. smog despite this) and was driven into the ground before being sold at a farm auction, so I bought the '05 from my dad because I can load everything I own into it and drive across the us for work.
Not really impressed with the current generation of 150s, but i'm needing something with 4wd for getting to and from work (usfs), so i'm thinking for my first actual vehicle i'll go with a 04-08 f150 or a tundra since iirc I can get factory new with manual like the '94 was.
Never owned a RWD before, and didn't want a Mustang/Camaro/Charger/Challenger, things are everywhere.
The car isn't even out yet, how do you know how it handles?
Look, I get you have a hard on for the ND, but it isn't that great of a car of the box. Even the club model is soft and requires an upgrade for the track.
The miata will always be a great platform, but you need to put money into first. That's true for all miatas.
>tfw only buy asian, latin american or european products just to fuck up american economy
Because it was made in the glorious nippon nation, it's AWD, and it was $1000
