Just hit 100K :D


Driver of Lina: Mazda3 5d
'04 Mazda3 5d, Titanium Gray
Something wonderful occurred in my titanium gray 2004 Mazda3 5-door 5-speed today:


Yep, 100,000 miles, and I got the car in April of 2004 new so that's almost 20,000 miles a year.

Otherwise, the car has held up remarkably well over the years... the only new parts are the rear brake pads, a new intake temp sensor, and the intake manifold (but that was replaced under warranty so I barely consider it).

Otherwise, the interior and leather have a few small scratches (my fault) and the dash has a crack since I used armor all on it (don't do that, it makes plastic dry out and crack). The exterior is very clean, the moulding peeled off on the passenger side, but I cleaned off the left over adhesive so you barely notice, and for some reason I don't have that many dents, I guess people are nice to smaller cars.

My only real complaint is the cheap, thin felt carpet that has a few holes worn into it... I think I am going to ask the dealer to replace it soon (hopefully it won't be too expensive) and then I'll go behind them and velcro/sew on a few pads in the sections I know are prone to wear. I might also just go to an upholstery shop and get it replaced there with something less chintzy.

Either way, I am hoping to get another 100,000 miles out of it, and it hasn't given me any indication that it won't be able to.



in progress...
