Hi All,

New to the forum & Mazda, the purchase being a Mazda3 Sport Nav, Fastback, 2.0ltr 120ps, traded our "Friday Car"  :-[ Hyundai i40 tourer, so downsized at the same time as the Mazda6 would be to big, looking forward to many years of fun driving "Mandy" (do people still name cars??), unlike the time spent at the Hyundai dealer  >:(

Thanks for the "Welcome"  ;D

Glad I'm not the only 1 that names a car  ;)

My other ride (to work & back) lasted bit longer than a day before she broke down....  9.5yrs to be exact :D , just set me back 2.5k ... damn 1.5dci engine  :-[

I can see where ya coming from "Red Ruby" by any chance ;)

I don't get to drive her much, being a trucker all week the Mrs gets all the fun  >:( I just get to wash her at the weekend   :P

wasn't to sure on the power to start with (probably cos I'm so use to a diesel), but now just shy of 2.5k on the clock, jumped in her at the weekend and was off, maybe a few more miles needed on the clock, also, averaging 36mpg at the min  :-[ was hoping for a bit more, I know she's still a bit tight and the Mrs don't go that far during the week  ;D
