    We traded in our 2011 Aquatic Blue 2 Touring today for a 2017 Subaru Forester XT. Was certainly sad to see Aoi go, and the decision was made more out of a need for something a bit bigger. We test drove a CX-3 and it certainly felt like it kept some of the 2's lineage, but the Forester was simply more comfortable, offered better visibility, and is *way* faster.

    I'm not going anywhere though, and I'm still part of the Mazda family...we're keeping Shiroi, our 2013 2.

    I'm still here, but more of a browser than a contributor. There's a huge crossover in the Subaru/Mazda owner's groups. It surprises me that the two companies haven't hooked up yet for a joint-developed project.

    I was looking at a 90, 91, and 94 Miata this week, but decided to throw the money at the 2 instead. All year, I work full time and coach a sport that has a fair amount of equipment for me to lug around...Can't do that in a Miata. A little dress up, Intake stuff, some ECU work are definitely in store for my future.

    It does bum me out that a lot of forum traffic here and elsewhere has migrated to FB. I'm sure it helps law enforcement immensely, though.

    Oddly, I have a Mazda/Subaru connection, myself. The folks at Subaru were leaning on me hard to go with a WRX, but I went Mazda6 GT. 'cause Canada still gets it with a manual. Comfort over performance, I suppose.

    Still have my 5 speed Mazda2 GS. Will be interesting to see what the demand is for the top trim with manual when I sell it. But yes, I was saddened with how little love the 2 has received in North America. It really was/is a fun little car to toss around.

    DrWebster: That XT shouldn't steer you wrong. We really like the motor in that model. The visibility, comfort and sure-footedness of the Forester are big plusses. A friend has a mid-trim '15 Forester and he still loves his car. He's not a "car guy" so the straightforwardness of the middle trim is all he wanted, and it works for him.

    I'm back after a few years away from the forum. I've been through a Fiesta ST and an MX-5 Club, but I just bought another 2011 5 speed Touring 2 and I'm loving it.

    I'm still here watching the activity die down. I just hit 30k and changed the oil. She's still basically new! Except for all the parking lot door dings
