Default New daily!

Hey all,

Just picked up a 2012 Mazda 2 with 5 speed manual as a new daily. Car has 68K miles, new clutch, motor mounts, and budget tires. This car is slow, but has a great shifter and handles awesome with tons of confidence even with lots of tire squeal. These cars are a bargain in the used market. While it cant touch the s2000 in fun factor it makes a great companion car to my AP1. It weighs less than a new miata at ~2300 pounds.

Nice!

And yea Mazda's are underrated as far as I'm concerned. I bought my fiancé a Mazda 3 hatchback back in 2016; 2.5S model w/ 13k miles on it, paid 14k OTD. It's got nearly 100k on it now and we haven't had a single issue with it, just general maintenance (tires, brakes, oil changes). Great little car, she's very happy with it.
