    We love them.  His gets 39 mpg on the highway.  Mine isn't really broken in yet, since I do very little highway driving.  But mine is the midlife-mobile, with a leather interior and the "technology package" (automatic headlights and wipers and a warning light/beep if you try to change lanes when somebody's next to you).

    •  Jealous of your SkyActive mpg's! (1+ / 0-)

      My 2010 6 speed manual hatchback w/2.5l engine gets 29mpg. (I do almost zero city driving.) I was very spoiled, gas mileage-wise, with my previous vehicle, a barebones manual Chevy Cavalier that my sis gave me when my original 323 finally got a little too ancient. 42mpg, at least! But I didn't exactly have the option to wait. When the Cavalier died, it died.

      Still, I love my Mazda, and am so happy you're a two Mazda family. Both of my parents had 626s once upon a time...
