    Meh. I never cared so much about income. I just want to always be able to afford what I need and want. Whatever that shakes out to, is fine by me.

    Yeh, it's good to not jump on the hamster wheel. It really goes nowhere.

    You just gotta manage those "wants."

    A decent vehicle, land, a decent house, and my firearm collection. Everything else? I'm not too hung up on.

    Didn't get to drive it(wasn't here yet), didn't even drive the GTR..affordability wasn't the issue just didn't want to blow the extra 15 or so.. Found a nice cpo(everything sans i-activ that I didn't want)16.5 w/23k on it and moved on..~50k deep in vehicle purchases YTD That said I think I got a nice garage renewal for what I almost would've been out on a nice loaded AWD Stinger or G70..2 is better than 1 esp when you roll 25+k/yr..

    I was able to do that a few years ago when I retired.

    Of course, the government has a perpetual lien against it in the guise of real estate taxes.

    I guess thats how the rich stay rich...Tax shelter.

    Gonna have to look into rental property under an LLC and if I can get a car payment (or partial) written off as a tax business expense.

    Three pages and no ones driven one.

    I like the low rpm nature of our one. Makes for a very quiet drive) No need to rev it as 90% of torque available off idle. Visits to gas station are infrequent with 35.6 mpg ( longer on trips)
    Combo of reasonable torque and enough power means safe enough overtaking. Very linear acceleration so comfortable for passengers. The price premium for the engine has already been offset but fuel savings in less than two years ( petrol more expensive where I live )

    Don*t knock it until you*ve tried one.

    Yeah but you have to realize that US version CX-5 2.2L diesel is way different from yours in New Zealand. It has added US emission device which requires AdBlue urea DEF. And its MPG (28/27/30 combined/city/highway EPA fuel economy rating for AWD) is not much better than 2.5T. And diesel fuel usually is more expensive than gasoline in the US.

    I agree with yrwei52.
    I was looking forward to the diesel option.
    No more, thanks to the availability of 2.5T.
    Even if it is a no charge option on GT and Signature, I am not sure there will be many takers...
    The 2.5T has similar output curves to the diesel one. MPG diff is only 3mpg with cheaper 87 octane in US.

    Let us see if Mazda can sell more than 500 units per month with $4k premium.
    I doubt it. This is about sales in US. Situation might be diff where you live.

    I get 28mpg on longer trips, and have more torque and way more horsepower, and gasoline is 50 cents cheaper than diesel per gallon where I live. Also, my vehicle cost 5k less than diesel and has 1 less turbo and no def system.

    Exactly. Iím willing to drive it and give it an honest review, however, I still wouldnít buy it even if it was the same price as the 2.5T models. No benefits, if anything, it is a downgrade.
