I just bought a brand new Honda Civic and it's fantastic. *You know, this thing is a bit snug and lacks a little power, but it handles great, shifts great, gets decent gas mileage, and I just love it. *The handling is what one me over.

In addition the assembly quality is spot on and the dealership was enthusiastic about the car, as it was the whole product line. *Lots of young salesmen truly enthusiastic about their brand.

The only inconvinence: *I had to drive an extra 40 miles to get the car....

....past two Honda dealers.......

...To the closest MAZDA dealer.

I bought a 2013 Mazda2. *Don't say it's not a Civic because I owned a Civic in the past (1995) and believe me, this thing is no smaller. *After I bought it I went to the Internet to get on some forums. *All they talk about is modding the suspension and engine, getting more performance, just like Honda guys like me USED to.

If you go into a modern day Honda dealer, it's like a funeral home. *Safe, conservative, with safe conservative cars. *They make a product that will exist in the market, then use marketing and good media relations to sell it.

Sad, because honestly, I like my Honda dealer. *Too bad they are selling Buicks down there instead of Hondas.

PS: *I did consider the Fit but as well as the Fit handles and drives, it's no match for the Mazda2. *The 2 handles better and on the expressway is composed while the Honda is a mix of road, engine, and wind noise. *Oh, and I drove the 2 off for under 14K.

RIP Honda. *It was nice knowing you.

I see what you did there...*

The Mazda 6 review here on TTAC drew such a huge number of comments and so many various opinions. When I'm car shopping I can't wait to try out a Mazda 6 Touring with a stick.*

The list of manual trans family sedans is very short and even shorter when you'd like to pay less than $25,000. I'm going to do some test drives and put my enthusiast money where my mouth is.*

Wouldn't mind meeting Sweet Caroline but I can't get to SC in Feb. I'd love some professional photography of my 1967 Mustang Convertible (even if it is a bit of a beater) but that car's not leaving NM until the restoration gets further along...
