I hate this car and can never escape.

I hate this car. It's everything I don't want... and I can never leave. My payments were keeping up with depreciation, until Mazda decided, "hey 2016 Touring buyers, get bent." The 2017 Touring has so many better options and features a 2016 Touring is all but worthless now. I'm so glad I stuck with Mazda. They're a great company. I will never buy a first year run of any car ever again. And I will never buy a Mazda, ever or tell anyone I know to even look.

I wouldn't care that they were offering new stuff if the car was good. But it's got the worst aspects of a cheap econo-box, a cramped sports car, and an unwieldy SUV. Tell me one upside about this car.

A car purchase is a big thing. So despite reviews, interviews, and I'm assuming you test drove yours that it would help set the tone on whether or not this is the car for you. In the end you pulled the trigger on getting this car so its on you dude. For all my needs this car is nearly perfect for me. Clearly this car did fit your needs and yet you did keep it.

So, you're going to die owning this car? I mean, never is a pretty long time but I figure you didn't take out a 30 year mortgage on it.

2005 RX-8 Sport Sunlight Silver under Cone Rash (because racecar!) -- SOLD!

what's so different between 2016 and 2017 other than the lower trims get the GT wheels?

Slev, don't know where you're from, or what you do ... but I gather you've nobody to blame when you second guess your decisions.

For most of us on this forum, the CX-3 is more than "just a vehicle." But with all due respect, it might be for you, that's exactly what it should be.

Seiv, the replies you received from your "I hate this car" rant were all spot on. I didn't detect any sympathy in them. Please add me to that list.
