I think that Mazda's recent concepts all look like something from a SciFi show, but their current production vehicles are excellent.

Mazda sold its soul to Ford.

They went from this...

If I had to buy a Japanese car, yes, it would be a Mazda...but only because I'd feel slightly less guilty about it because Ford owns 1/3 of the company.

If I never buy Japanese, it will be all the better. I don't forsee myself ever having a Japanese car in my driveway.

Mazda definitely has some interesting models...though if I bought Japanese, I'd probably go with an Infiniti..maybe an Acura.

So without Ford's help, Mazda couldn't have come out with a new model? Wow, the new model looks better than the old, what a concept.

That isn't even a picture of the latest Protege, that's the late 90's model. The Protege was a nice looking car for its time. And in some ways I still prefer it to the funky bird-ish styling of the new 3.

They went from a sleek 2-seater to a bloated overrated 4 door sedan. I'm not saying it's Ford's fault, but since we're comparing old to new... :AH-HA_wink:

How is it overrated exactly?

Power-wise, it is rated too high. Dyno charts of stock RX-8's read low at the wheels and at the hubs (a car rated to 238 flywheel horsepower reading 180-190 wheel hp is a bit low). To start, look here. Don't you remember Mazda having to re-rate the RX8 because they originally rated it to high? It was something like 258hp originally, now it's 238hp. And no that wasn't due to the EPA testing changes.

It only puts down about 120-125 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. That's less than a Civic Si. :AH-HA_wink:

Mazda is better than Honda but that's like saying:

"If you absolutely HAVE to pick up a hooker at

least do NOT go with Roxette because she's

HIV positive, skitzo & likes to bite a lot."

Yes.

It's also MORE than the original S2000's 115 ft/lbs. of torque.

You seem to always have some interesting excuse as to

why this is acceptable.

Kids & their Hon-Duhs & Aku-Raahs.

P.S. Ever wonder why Acura is spelled with ONE C? :wink:

Mazda has been the most origional and unique asian brand for years now! They have the BEST styling by far and the Miata helped them ALOT!! But I would rather NOT buy a asian car EVER but I can give credit were credit is due!!

You think that bulbous soulless blob of a Honda Civic is better looking?
