    Agreed. My wife has been driving her Lexus hybrid with CVT for more than 14 years now and I'd say that these transmissions are among the most reliable out there. Many of their vehicles have 250,000+...

    I owned an 89 MX6 GT for 14 years and one of the reasons I sold it was because of engine and transmission oil leaks. The cost to fix some of them was well north of the car's value. That is typical of...

    Very nice! I am curious as to how much those houses sell for in your area.

    I agree that the 2.5 (which is the same engine my 3 has) has plenty of power. However, after driving a rented McLaren 570S (0-60 MPH in 2.7 seconds), my 3 seems to be a bit slower. :)

    I drive to work, very early (6:00) in the morning. Closer to work, there's a mile long, super wide road that has two lanes per side. I was driving my MX5 with the top down on one of those mornings...

    Did your CX have the deep cycle battery for the super capacitor? If so, what kind of battery did you buy? I had my battery swapped at the dealership, this time. Doing so requires a specific sequence...

    If handling is your priority, consider the Porsche Macan. It is certainly a step up from your CX5.:)

    I wonder what putting your gear selector in neutral has to do with the backup lights. Traditionally, there would be a dedicated backup light switch. Perhaps the neutral safety switch does double...

    I rented a McLaren 570S twin turbo V8 in April. It's 0-60 is in 2.7 seconds. Needless to say, not many cars would impress me after that rocket ship ride. :)

    He does get some things right, like the high cost of German vehicle maintenance and repair, but he tends to say things like "I had a customer who **". You should not use a very small data sample to...

    I think the 2.5 is an excellent engine. Would I buy a smaller, turbo-charged version with better fuel mileage and sportier seats and a quieter interior (compared to my 2014)? Yes, but not when my...

    The fluid level in the master cylinder goes down over time because pad wear allows the caliper pistons to move further inward, pulling fluid from the reservoir.

    Under most circumstances, it's not the power, it's the torque that is the key to driving enjoyment. One of my coworkers has a diesel Colorado and he tells me that the difference in fuel mileage...

    As a general rule of thumb, I have the brake fluid replaced at every brake service. The average humidity here in southern Cali is typically high when the car is in the garage - night and early...

    My 2014 has been stellar with 24,000 miles on it, as is my 2008 MX5 with 60,000 miles.
    You really can't go wrong unless the maintenance schedule had not been followed. Always verify before buying.

    My guess is that the sensitivity is set too high. My 2014 has the Tech package and has never done what you described.

    I used ArmourAll on the dash of my 68 Corvette for over 22 years and it never had a crack in it. I now use the matte-finish ArmourAll wipes on my cars' dashes and all is good.

    Really, if you, as all of the magazine and youtube writers/testers have done, compared all aspects of the two cars, you'd find that the Mazda 3 is:

    Much quieter
    Better riding
    More reliable...
