And it's been exactly 6 months since the LT intro. You're on target for exactly 20k miles for a yearlong test.
"But that's probably fitting since our little Mazda has been quietly getting the job done since day one."
Well, quiet unless you count the [non-permissible content removed]-ton of road noise you've been complaining about.
It's quieter than the previous generation, which itself is not objectionably loud (to me, anyway). Sure, it would be nice if it were quieter, but not at the expense of weight and MPG.
The noise complaints are not really justified IMHO...is it Lexus quiet? No. But I don't have any issues hearing the radio or carrying on a conversation, and I don't get in my Mazda3 planning on taking a nap at the wheel. It is no more noisy than any comparable car.
