  • Last year's LA Auto Show had a Mazda6 show car that the show put together. It had a custom-made center stack panel with standard openings for an off-the-shelf head unit. It was the entire silver panel from the ash tray to the display. I don't know of anyone that makes that panel.

    Remember that with an 03 you are getting a 1-year-old car.
    I'd take the $1000 off on the 04.

    "I'd take the $1000 off on the 04."

    I agree! Most of the '03's on the lots around here are i's with AT and hubcaps. No thanks.

    A lot of them are the "sand" or sepang green colors too. I've never seen one of those on the road either. Only shadow grey, black, silver, white, and lapis blues so far.
  • While drivin' MY Continental to our favorite Mazda dealer ... there was an accord putt puttin' (@least 15 mph under the speed limit) in front of me. Unable to change lanes, I was "stuck" behind the rust bucket. The driver put on their flashers. Low & Behold...car problems...nah couldn't be, not in an accord! But YES they couldn't make it up the hill. God Bless America....

    What's your point?

    Did I ever say that Accords NEVER have problems? I guess I shouldn't get one then, since you saw one with mechanical problems and rust. Scratch the Accord off my list, someone on the internet saw one with problems. Time to go find a car that nobody on the internet has ever had problems with or heard about problems. This is going to take a while.

    One thing I do know, both the Mazda6 and Accord will rust, but it'll take the Accord about 8 years instead of the Mazda6's 8 months (or less).
  • Nice cleansing breaths...
    LOL, 'tis okay Newcar.
    I remember the 80's, if anyone drove "foreign" their car was keyed (@ the least). The now generation of "latch key children" think it's politically correct to boycott American jobs. Personally, I choose not to commit economic treason.

    p.s. rut roh....Pat is gonna get irked w/me

    "The now generation of "latch key children" think it's politically correct to boycott American jobs. Personally, I choose not to commit economic treason."

    3 words for you:

    Free Market Economy

    I buy what I want to buy for my own reasons without fear of commiting "economic treason", whatever that is. Lol. Any other way of making buying decisions is un-American.

    Besides, most Accords are made in the US.
  • Free Market = Rich politicians.

    "Besides, most Accords are made in the US."

    The money goes back to Japan!

    I love this....this is fun Newcar.

    "The money goes back to Japan!"

    The money also goes to American blue colar workers. "Buy American" is a crap idea, especially when the "American" companies are moving LOTS of production to Mexico. CEOs keep their bonuses and American workers lose their jobs. That's really patriotic isn't it?

    You've been trolled. IGNORE IGNORE IGNORE
  • We're only responsible for our own actions.
  • "moving jobs to mexico".

    Get facts straight before making claims.

    No new plants have been built in Mexico by the Big 3 in the last 10 years, at least. And, the jobs you claim that were "moved there" have been there for at least 15 years.

    In fact a Ford plant had to lay off Mexican workers when the Escort was dropped. This same plant will build the Ford Futura.

    Also, I laugh at the rumormonger who claimed that the Mazda 6 engines are failing simply since they are "Ford".

    "Get facts straight before making claims."

    The Futura was originally going to be built in Atlanta, but Ford decided to build it in Mexico.
  • push 1 for English...and 2 for Spanish
  • no, the Futura was not 'set in stone' to go to Atlanta, it was merely in the running among many plants. No jobs from Atlanta are "moving there", since Atlanta is getting SUV's based on the Mazda 6.

    And if one is for 'free trade', then jobs in Mexico shouldn't be an issue.

    Ford was going to build a new plant in Atlanta to build the Futura. Now, they're keeping the existing plant for the aging Taurus and Sable and people are going to be laid off and shifts are going to be cut as demand decreases for those two. Last I heard, they were going to build the Mazda6 based SUVs in Ontario.

    "And if one is for 'free trade', then jobs in Mexico shouldn't be an issue."

    I am for free trade, I was just pointing out that there is more to buying "American" than buying a vehicle from a Big 2 automaker.

    New--I live not far from the Toledo Jeep plant...I'm sure they're still producing the Liberty. Big2?

    *in a voice too high to sound like Rodney King*

    CAN'T we ALL just get ALONG?

    "New--I live not far from the Toledo Jeep plant...I'm sure they're still producing the Liberty. Big2?"

    But the money goes back to Germany, using your logic, right?

    "Get facts straight before making claims."

    This just irks me, especially since you think Ford didn't have any formal plans to build a new plant in Atlanta, and that the Mazda6 based SUVs would be built in Atlanta. I have my facts straight, do you?
