The latest IIHS test is the small front overlap, which places just a fraction of the front end with the brunt of a full-force impact. Itís made automakers sweat the details a little more. And some have done a little better than others. The IIHS announced its new test in 2009, giving automakers plenty of time to make their vehicles safer.
A vehicle that came out all-new in 2011 might not have had the time to undergo any changes, as its design was locked into place years ago. But a new car only takes three years to reach the market. Thereís really no excuse for any of them to perform too poorly, even if it is an all-new test.

Our Mazda3 s just hit 115k miles yesterday and we predict that we'll be keeping it until at least 150k if not longer. Sure, we've had to put some $ into it this past year but it sure beats having to spend almost $20k on a new car. And with the motor mounts repair, car drives like brand new. Mazda's are as reliable and will last just as longer as the other Japanese brands in my opinion...and we have never kept a car past 80k miles ever before...this Mazda is a great car!

Wondering if this is a good deal:
They threw in guards and wheel locks. Put a deposit down since they didn't have my color. I might need to call them about the tax. Bought in VA but live in NC, it seems a little low.
Shopped initially for Acura TL and Audi A4, but I loved my Civic and stuck with Honda. Used carwoo.com to help with the offers.

I am still scratching my head in a way. Specially as a dealer offered me $750 less. The total would be like $16,860 for my OTD for a 2013 Mazda 6 isport automatic. I will meditate until Monday and see what's best. Again the 2013 accord won't go for less than 22k OTD. So I am still somewhat debating.
I guess you would go for the Mazda.
When I test drove the Mazda, for the first 2000 feet or so there was clucking clucking noise that went away completely after that. It wasn't the car color I wanted so it wasn't going to be that one anyway. But the reviews about engines failing and transmission going bad were what made me wonder and pull back. By the way the dealer is in Easton PA if anyone is interested.

By the way my hopeful philosophy is that I will keep the accord for 120k150k saving me $2600-$3500 in gas. Plus Resale value and hopefully less money in maintenance, and the accord extra features: back up camera, bluetooth, alloy wheels, better crash testing will pay in the long run.
On the other hand with the Mazda I would save now and if reliability proof to be good, I wouldhave saved a lot of money.
The really odd thing about the Mazda is that I found out that they stopped production of that car in August 2012 and they still have leftovers. There were about 7k as of December.
They won't make them in Florida and they moved them to Japan for 2014 because they are not selling and don't get me wrong, is a hot looking car imho, and for those prices it makes me wonder why not more people are driving them.

HOnda's warranty does not cover the tires. If you check the documents you were given, you will find the tire manufacturer's warranty.
If your flat tire was caused by a road hazard like a nail, your flat won't be covered. You will only get something back from the tire manufacturer if there was a defect in the tire.
