Nice.

I saw an AWD Mazda 3 the other day. Had no idea they were a thing.

Yeah, they added the AWD for '19 I think and the Turbo for '21.

I had no idea about AWD or turbo outside of the Mazdaspeed 3.

Might just be the way you worded it but the Mazdaspeed 3 never got AWD.

It didn’t? That’s on me then, because I honestly thought that it did.

I would love to see that graph overlaid with vehicular accidents. People can barely drive cars, let alone SUVs and trucks, the latter of which some seem to think they can drive at any speed in weather.

You mean Joe Somerset shouldn't be driving 70 mph on icy roads in his pick up? Lies.

It’s like “Pitfall” on the Atari 2600. When it gets to that sidewalk I’m jumping on the mofo

I was never really a Lexus fan, but the new IS500 looks really good:

That's what they get for turning the Cherokee into a glorified station wagon.

lol at this exchange I had with Turner Motorsports.

Their original announcement got no retweets, no other replies, and one favorite. Ouch.

No, nobody is looking to modify their i3. Stop.
Just from a visual perspective that's a stupid looking car.

I loved my 85 Jeep Cherokee. It was a POS with the 2.8L V6, but I loved it. Drove it on the beach in Nags Head, which was pretty cool. My mom had a 95 Cherokee with the inline six that was solid, but it was only 2WD. The new ones look like every other generic fake SUV on the road, which is sad.

So, a week in.... if it is as reliable as my previous Mazdas, when I hand this 3 off to my kid to take to college I would absolutely consider another one.

Mrs. Franchise says it has too much "oomph" and she goes too fast wihout realizing it. That's why God made cruise control.

My first vehicle was a 92 Cherokee with the 4.0 I6. What a tank that thing was. I sold it to buy a stinkin laptop for college.

18,000 tow capacity. *flex*

Driving home from work Monday I looked down and realized I was doing 85mph on skinny snow tires. Got home and one of my hubcaps was missing. Probably decapitated someone in Swissvale.
