Well, the 200S V6 was a good car for us, no problems really. But a few things pushed us to trade, we wanted a car with color, was tired of the billet silver even after we vinyl wrapped its roof red. And it didn't have the AWD or upgraded infotainment. And we don't often haul anyone in the back anymore. So we started looking at the compact class. First Japanese car I've ever bought, but the domestics have abandoned sedans mostly. So we drove this, a Jetta, a Civic, and an Impreza. The Mazda3 was better in most of our personal categories. So, we got this fully loaded Premium one to catch all the bells and whistles.Welcome. Good trade to make. Your Mazda is far more reliable. But then I'm biased. Was forced to constantly repair an old neon for my parents years ago. It became very personal. Mostly it kept telling me that I'm a piece of human garbage every time I worked on it.
You're a lucky owner! at the right time and place. Turbo with AWD has been the envy of many Mazda owners, which were during the dark ages (no-turbo) 2013-2020.Hello, we just got a 2021 Mazda3 Turbo AWD in Soul Red. We are very impressed with the car so far. Traded a 2015 Chrysler 200S for it.
Agree that they dropped them just as some were getting very good.I rented a 2014 Chrysler 200S on a trip to LA once when they first came out, and it was an attractive car and handled well. It was a shame that Chrysler, Ford and GM abandoned their sedan models just as they were becoming dynamically more competitive.
But your Mazda is definitely an upgrade, so congrats!
Yeah, that can be a mess. Sorry that happened to yours.Remember to keep bird shit off the Soul Red. My wife's car is painted SR and a 2 week old dollop of bird shit ate through to the bare metal. I'm probably up for a full door repaint after the panel shop looks at it.
