Hello, I'm from Canada and just bought a brand new 2018 Mazda 3 50th Anniversary edition (CAN) in Snowflake White Pearl. :grin2:
Although this is not my first Mazda it has been a very one time since I last owned one. About 30 years ago and it was a B series that tried to kill me twice. (Although I did help it along quite a bit)
I currently still have a Ford Focus, a Subaru, and a Volvo. I drive a lot of k's and need a car with good gas mileage, is comfortable and not to boring to drive. I heard a lot about the Skyactiv tech and was sold on the driving dynamics and leather seats.
Welcome to the forum! I also picked the Mazda 3 because of its good gas mileage! You should get better gas mileage as you drive your car a couple thousand miles. 41mpg on first drive is already good. Have a good day!
