I'd be surprised if that was the case. I've bought 3 Mazdas from this guy. He's always been straight up with me. I've only seen AWD showing up so far but time will tell.Longhorn I think you're being hustled. It may be that this first shipment is only AWDs, but more CX-3s coming and I wouldn't be surprised if FWDs are in that batch. Anything less and it would be a shabby ploy by Mazda to get an additional $1250 out of buyers and that would set them up for unwanted negative publicity.
On a related note, Honda only allocated AWD HR-Vs to areas of the country with adverse winter weather; the Northeast, for example.
That was one thing that drove me nuts when I was initially shopping in the CX-5 sized category. You could not find a FWD Honda or Toyota anywhere in the Northeast. None.On a related note, Honda only allocated AWD HR-Vs to areas of the country with adverse winter weather; the Northeast, for example.
This is pretty convincing! What I'm wondering (and just commented on in the video) is whether the gas mileage will be similar to the FWD whenever the activesense does not initate AWD? In those cases is the drivetype considered FWD?
I was told by my dealer that only AWD CX-3s would be sent up the Northeastern Seaboard. They didn't want to gut the sales of the 5 door Mazda 3 which only comes in FWD. Also, given the snow that's expected, I guess that's a good thing?I'm told this to hear in nj only awd for now, I figure we could use it,
