Default Mazda is in the *******

Oof


Among other automakers, Subaru extended its streak of year-over-year monthly gains to 89 with April volume rising 7.7 percent. Hyundai's sales rose 0.7 percent, Kia gained 1.6 percent and Mazda fell 15 percent, extending its streak of monthly declines to ten.

Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today reported total April sales of 19,702 vehicles, a decrease of 14.5 percent compared to April 2018. Year-to-date sales through April saw a decrease of 15.4 percent, with 90,535 vehicles sold. With 25 selling days in April, compared to 24 the year prior, the company posted a decrease of 18 percent on a Daily Selling Rate (DSR) basis.

Do they make anything "fun" anymore outside of the Miata? They killed off all of the "Speed" trims, right?

i'll be honest, my ignorance is contributing to Mazda's poor numbers.

I've never once seriously considered purchasing a Mazda, purely due to the fact that I perceive their offerings to be inferior in quality/resale value to the other Japanese brands.

Also, their zoom zoom campaign and changing their flame logo to the current one was somewhat off putting.

They'd really need to offer something beyond special to get me to buy.

The new 3 is supposed to be an absolute improvement over the last one (interior materials, chassis dynamics, etc) and some reviewers have the interior as borderline luxury status

Time for Mazda to merge with FCA. Mazda stocks will fall. FCA would pick it up on the cheap. Ghosn is still in jail and would pass on anything JDM, at this point. So it's green light for FCA. This merger with be perfect for both sides.

They kind of should be in the *******. They keep going the opposite direction of what made their resurgence in the early 00’s.

My ‘07 3 hatch is fun to drive. My wife’s ‘16 3 hatch feels like the boring 4 cyl commuter boxes they were crushing in the 00’s.

What did they change up on it? Suspension? Different motor? Is it heavier?

That's why it's perfect for each other. Mazda need trucks and minivans. FCA need smaller cars done right. Win for everyone.

Hmph, I drove a '17 6 with 6MT and thought it drove really nicely for a new mainstream sedan

I was gonna bash that thing and call it a penalty box but it's probably the closest thing to an EG/EK hatch that you can buy new nowadays

(minus the driving feel, reliability and fun to drive factor of them)

The speed6 and speed3, were pretty good cars. AWD on the speed 6 and relatively quick, and the speed3 hatch was pretty fast and fun to drive.

Wonder why they got rid of them.
