I have 176,000 miles on a 2008 Mazda 3 S Sport Hatchback with manual transmission. Upcoming front wheel bearing replacement happening in early Feb, but still have original clutch. Car's been great, I keep up on the oil changes and regular maintenance. Due to the crummy roads in SE Pennsylvania outside of Philadelphia, front end alignments and shock/strut replacement happen more frequently than what most people have to get. My ONLY complaint is how crummy the back window wiper is--many replacements, never a smooth clear back window. Have BF Goodrich G-force Comp 2 A/S tires, had been running with Kumho ASX tires but couldn't get them after awhile. LOVE THIS CAR.
