I wish Scion would stay in CA too. Yeah, they're cheap, but people know that. I wouldn't customize a Kia or a Daewoo. I don't know how well they'll sell around here. But, hey, I could be wrong.

I think that even at 150hp, the engine should be powerful enough for the Mazda 3 chassis.

The one complaint by Protege owners was that the chassis was itching for more hp, but the 130hp didn't deliver.

Remember that Canadain mpg figures and US mpg are different.

Our CDN gallon, Imperial, I think is larger so it drives up the mpg figure.
And I think they are probably low balling the Mazda 3s estimates.

I have recorded on numerous occasions, 26-30mpg (highway) on my 88 Camaro. Which has a 305 TBI V8/4speed auto od/ 2.73 gears.
