    Hi all. Just hit 2500 miles on my 2022 2.5 Preferred automatic. It's superb! I'm looking for input from other owners as to the smoothness and responsiveness of their automatic transmission.

    I bought a 2007 hatchback 2.3 back in March and it’s been amazing to me. I drove it across country, and I also use it for work, but I’m afraid my neglect is catching up to it. I’m not super knowledgeable on cars beyond changing brake pads and oil, but I’m broke right now and I’m going to have to...

    I took my Mazda3 CPO back to the dealership a week after purchasing it since the shifter vibrates while accelerating in the 3rd gear.
