You know, reading the title of this thread... I was really freaked out and expecting another "Walker Incident"... glad that wasn't the case!

Yep, congrats Chilly. Kind of a coincidence on the car thing. I just bought and picked up the Mazda 3 touring S flavor yesterday as well. Traded in my 02 Jetta turbo. Going to miss the speed of the jetta but didn't really want the hatchback version. Kind of suprised they don't offer the turbo in the sedan.

What's even a better thing is the trans was going out on the Jetta but the dealer doesn't know it yet. That was a $5k fix at the dealer or $3k at a transmission shop. I friggen loved sticking them with that little surprise after they dig deeper into it! I've never traded in a car before but couldn't be the d!ck who sold that on the private market.

When I traded in my Protege, it needed a couple grand in repairs. The check engine light had come on, and they found lots and lots and lots of little problems. Some dude at the dealership that had done all the work showed me how to reset the check engine light, so that I could trade it in without the light on. It kept clicking back on - I kept resetting it (think that was just a problem with the catalytic converter, but there were lots of other issues). The new dealership looked the car over pretty thoroughly, but didn't come back at me with any problems.

desertBrew, Is the Mazda 3 touring S the NA 2.3l? That's good motor even w/o the little turbo on the backside. My MS3 has way more pull than the new gti though it is a little harsher in ride/power delivery. Soon will be the intake, catback, BOV, and boost gauge (none from stock, wth??). Well, as funds permit, of course. I've got a kegerator to build, too. Good thing some OT is coming my way @work.
