      This....

      I drove a loaded 2015 4 door sedan and I really liked it, even with an automatic. But around here rust is a huge concern with Mazdas.

      Yep, the V6 cars are pretty rare. Even new, I thought they gave you the best bang for the buck. Love the Fender system!

      I did drive a 1.8 TSI and was impressed with the engine. If I could have...

      I bought a set of Kumho Ecsta PA31 HP for my GTI and they are probably the best all around all-season tire I've purchased! Great prices too.
