New here

Just bought a 2018 Mazda CX3.

Currently own:

2003 Saab 95 Aero Wagon
2001 VW Jetta GLX VR6
1997 Lada Niva
1986 Skoda 120 GLS
1983 Skoda 120 GL

In the interest of honesty... not a fan... too cramped, under powered, the heated steering wheel doesn't even warm the whole wheel, ground clearance is under whelming among a few things. But it is the wifes car... hopefully it will grow on me and this site will show me what there is too love! I do have an open mind. haha

"Under powered"? I'll put my CX-3 up against any of your Skodas ... and the wannabe FIAT
P.S. Welcome to the group √
P.P.S. Skodas and a Lada, where are you located?

Well at least your wife will be safe in her new car where you will be lucky to walk away from anything other than a minor shunt. As for whether you like it, I presume your wife doesn’t care or she wouldn’t be in it. To be frank, I don’t either.

Currently CX5 SportNav 2.2 diesel automatic and AWD.
Formerly CX3 SportNav 1.5 diesel automatic and AWD.

To each there own, but I feel safer in my Saab. And we shopped around, out of all the tiny hatchbacks, CX3 was tied with the Kona we drove in Aussie land. However, not available in Canada yet so we jumped on it.

Hey, I approved the purchase. I like the little runt. Just hate that it is advertised as a sub-compact SUV when it has no SUV qualities. We got it stuck on the test drive in a back alley. haha Still a nice car, which is why I gave the wife 2 thumbs up.

As for my collection, Here are some pics. (I also have a Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 and Kawasaki ZX10) (Don't have any of the CX3 yet, will post soon) *UPDATE* Jetta Sold haha

















And for old times sake... My teams old CRX Ice Racer:
