About bloody time! Have spent way too much money lately just trying to keep my 8-year old Peugeot 206 running, and without much luck it seems. Last straw was last week when the exhaust literally committed suicide and scattered itself all over the street. YAY FUN. This is just a couple weeks after I get the ABS brake system fixed and I know the transmission is on it's last legs and the engine block is pissing oil. So, enough is enough! Decided to get rid of the old girl while I could still get some moneys worth out of her, and after some browsings, price comparisons and (most importantly!) test drives, I picked this one: Mazda 3: ZOOM-ZOOM! It's slightly bigger than my old 206 and thus I can't help but feel like kind of a soccer mom driving it, but it drives like a beaut and the inside looks every bit as pretty as the exterior! Yah....recession and bankruptcies and whatnot going on, and Bimma goes and buys a new car. Insane, no?
