Reliability Q's? Motor mount? Clutch?

I've been looking into getting a 06-08 Mazda3 with the 2.0.

Reading around here I see a lot of people having issues with the motor mounts, does this apply to the 2.0 too? Or just the 2.3?

Also I've heard of problems with the clutches on manual cars, are the autos more reliable?

Any other issues to look out for? I'm just wanting to know what the most reliable combination would be and what problems I'll be faced with.

Re: Reliability Q's? Motor mount? Clutch?

2.0 and 2.3 has the same motor mount #3. So it's both problem but can be easily fixed and replaced.

I drive atx and it's pretty reliable. Just need flushing every 30k-40k though. Idk much about the manual though.

Another issue to look out for is the weird idle that occurs to everyone here. Mainly just clean the TB and MAF every time you change air filter. OEM Battery on Mazda usually die faster than any other car, another thing to look out for.
