Saturdays 10am – 12pm
So why buy a Mazda CX 5 when there’s so many Toyotas, Hondas, Fords, Chevy’s, Hyundais, KIAs, and now, even Mitsubishi’s to choose from?
Looking for economy and utility….on a budget?
I’m going to call Mitsubishi the Rocky Balboa of the automotive industry. Once a player, then beaten to their knees in the downturn ten years ago, Mitsubishi is trending back up these days.
I thought I tested a great car last week. Beautiful interior…..great feel….good acceleration and braking….and mid-30 MPGs on the highway…..all for under 35K. And it was a great car.
If you’re reading this, I’m guessing that it’s for one of two reasons. 1) If you’re already one of Mazda’s faithful, you’re just hoping that they haven’t messed it up.
When I young lad ( long ago ) a Swiss Army Knife was every kid’s ”gotta’ have.” A pocket knife with something like 19 functions. 3 or 4 blades…some that doubled as screwdrivers, can and bottle openers, files, corkscrews….yeah….as if an 8-year-old needed a corkscrew…
So what is this?
A small luxury car?
A stylish economy car?
A road racer’s everyday driver?
It seems to be a forgone conclusion that in another 5, 10, 15 years, our cars will be driving us instead of the other way around. And they’ll likely be electric…and we may not even own them. We might just hit an app….decide what kind of vehicle we’re in the mood for today….and rent it by the hour, day, week or month.
OK….I’ve rolled my eyes more than once at Matthew McConaughey and his Lincoln commercials over the past few years. And I’m not sure if both he….and a couple of those cars….didn’t deserve it back then.
I was parked next to a guy in a Tesla. He got in and drove off….silently, of course….and all I could think was “Poor guy….his car has no soul.”
