    19 is extreme. I am thinking 15-16% is doable for non turbo models. Mazda may have done their research on turbos and stock enough to meet demand which could keep transaction prices higher.

    Shocks and Struts were preventive or they needed to be changed?

    I got my rear TSB done and after that, when the EPB is engaged and I press the throttle it does not disengage. It used to do that before. I just went out of warranty.
