Is 130,000 miles a lot for a 2012 Mazda 3 Skyactiv manual 6 speed?
I broght it last October and I hope I have this car a good long time.

Well, 130,000 miles is a lot of miles. However, most cars these days go over 200k without an issue if maintained regularly.

Amazing how it's changed, that. I remember when a small car at the least would need a valve grind at 50,000 miles... and even with a domestic V8 - anything over 100,000 mi. was "gravy".

Cars have come a long way and soo has Donald J Trump....
I love my Mazda...
I have seen many cars online before I bought my 2012 Mazda .......Cars that had close to 200K miles selling for 7-8-9 grand.....
Most American cars suck but foreign cars last forever....
One of the main reasons I bought the 2012 Skyactiv was great gas mileage..I get around 450 miles on one tank of gas.

My 2013 skyactiv 6MT has 112,000 on it and I have just had to do regular maintenance. About to do brakes and rotors all around, belt tensioner with belts, and front struts. I have done consistent oil changes and the only other thing I need to add to my list is pulling the intake off and cleaning the intake valves.

I am also changing all my fluids soon too. No major issues to date so that's a plus.
